Health care delivery is changing and patient-centered health care will depend on the ability to aggregate health data across provider networks through open standards like SMART on FHIR.

Grahame Grieve, principal at Health Intersections in Melbourne, Australia, is one of the architect-developers for HL7's FHIR specifications that enable EHRs to exchange information. He joined us on The Cerner Podcast to share insight on how the ability to aggregate health data will provide a better health care process.

In this episode Grahame answers five questions, and discusses the new collaboration between HL7 and Google announced today at #HIMSS17.

  • Being Australian, you have a global view. What is your perspective on the global impact of FHIR and in your perspective, what is the most important thing happening in interoperability?
  • What do you think are the biggest barriers to interoperability? How will FHIR help address these barriers?
  • How has the emergence of FHIR effected HL7? How is HL7 evolving to better support the community?
  • After founding FHIR six years ago, you are finally now seeing it take off as health IT companies are gravitating toward it. Can you sketch out the future path for FHIR's maturing?
  • How to do you see FHIRs impact evolve over the next few years?
