Are You Ready For FHIR?
Speed adoption of the new healthcare data exchange standard with FHIR Works on AWS
In 2020, the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized a mandate for the use of Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) by a variety of CMS-regulated payers and providers beginning in mid-2021. If your organization is affected by the CMS mandate, you must adopt FHIR or face regulatory fines.
You need to move fast to meet mandated deadlines — but you should be aware of some potential hurdles before you make any decisions:
- - FHIR is still a nascent standard, and there are relatively few commercial options available that are comfortable for most budgets.
- - Building your own in-house FHIR implementation might require your developers to sort through multiple commercial and open-source projects, while taking the time to learn the FHIR specification.
- - Building an interface or app is just the first step. Your team will need the skills and resources to manage and scale your backend FHIR service in the future.
In order to help organizations more easily adopt FHIR, Amazon Web Services (AWS) released an open-source, cloud-based software toolkit that offers unique advantages for building FHIR-based services.
