Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR, pronounced "Fire") defines a set of "[[Resource]]s" that represent granular clinical concepts. The resources can be managed in isolation, or aggregated into complex documents. Technically, FHIR is designed for the web; the resources are based on simple XML or JSON structures, with an http-based RESTful protocol where each resource has predictable URL. Where possible, open internet standards are used for data representation.

Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR, pronounced "Fire") defines a set of "[[Resource]]s" that represent granular clinical concepts. The resources can be managed in isolation, or aggregated into complex documents. This flexibility offers coherent solutions for a range of interoperability problems. The simple direct definitions of the resources are based on thorough requirements gathering, formal analysis and extensive cross-mapping to other relevant standards. A workflow management layer provides support for designing, procuring, and integrating solutions. Technically, FHIR is designed for the web; the resources are based on simple XML, with an http-based RESTful protocol where each resource has predictable URL. Where possible, open internet standards are used for data representation.

== More help and Asking Questions ==

|valign=top|
There are a number of ways that you can get specific help when using FHIR, in addition to the specification:
 
* There is a [[FHIR FAQ]] which addresses questions from both business and technical perspectives
 
* The [[FHIR Starter]] page, aimed at the novice, has pointers to tutorials, how to use a test server, and a few other helpful pointers
 
* There is a lot of information in this wiki
 
* The HL7 [[FHIR_email_list_subscription_instructions|List server]] is a good place to ask general questions
 
* Each resource in the specification has a Community page linked to it
 
* Each resource has extensive examples
 
* There are a number of Skype conversations about FHIR - one developed to implementers and very closely monitored ('''To Join''', ask David by email [mailto:david.hay25@gmail.com], or by skype to david.hay25). This is good for urgent inquiries.
 
* We are starting to use the [http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/hl7-fhir Stack Overflow] on-line application (use the tag hl7-fhir) as this is a very common source of information for developers, and the information there is very easy to find

Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR, pronounced "Fire") defines a set of "Resources" that represent granular clinical concepts. The resources can be managed in isolation, or aggregated into complex documents. Technically, FHIR is designed for the web; the resources are based on simple XML or JSON structures, with an http-based RESTful protocol where each resource has predictable URL. Where possible, open internet standards are used for data representation.
