Experion has signed an agreement with a Canada-based healthcare technology services provider to Develop a Clinical Data Repository (CDR) that aggregates data from multiple sources into the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) model. The client approached Experion to develop a comprehensive FHIR® based CDR that could interact with any Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems used by a hospital. In the initial discussions, healthcare technical specialists from Experion identified that apart from a centralized CDR, the client also needs a secure application to access the CDR.
Experion recommended the development of a tailor-made SMART-on-FHIR app, enabling the CDR application to work at any healthcare organization, regardless of the EMR being used. This was a critical requirement for the client.
Full-scale development will follow after delivering a Proof of Concept (POC) for the client. As part of PoC, Experion will build an FHIR data store using ‘Azure API for FHIR’. The FHIR® store will provide access to FHIR® resources while facilitating security, access control, and standards-based access.
