HL7 is pleased to announce that release 3 of FHIR has just been published.

 

The FHIR community invested a huge amount of work in this release – hundreds of people have contributed to the specification, and there have been thousands of Change Proposals processed (>2400). Most of these change proposals arose from 3 different places:

 

  • Implementation Experience (Trial use is working)

  • Alignment with other standards

  • Internal Quality Review processes

    Some of the key changes:

     

  • Added support for Clinical Decision Support and Clinical Quality Measures

  • Broadened functionality to cover key clinical workflows

  • Further development of Terminology Services, and support for Financial Management

  • Defined an RDF format, and how FHIR relates to Linked Data
