FHIR Bulk Data API

Presentation

Healthcare organizations have many reasons for bulk-data export, such as populating a data warehouse for operational or clinical analytics, leveraging population health and decision support tools from external vendors, and submitting data to registries and regulatory agencies. Today, bulk export is often accomplished with proprietary pipelines, and data transfer operations frequently involve an engineering and field mapping project. Learn about an exciting new effort by SMART and HL7 to bring the FHIR standard to bear on these challenges of bulk-data export.
