Apple harnesses FHIR to link medical records to the iPhone

Apple has added a new feature called Health Records to its Health app on the beta version of iOS 11.3 for the iPhone, using the Australian-developed Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standard to link hospital medical records to the app.

Apple has worked with EMR vendors Epic, Cerner and AthenaHealth in the first stage of the roll-out, which will enable patients of 12 US-based hospital operators to see their medical data on their phones. All three vendors are part of Project Argonaut, which was set up to develop a FHIR-based API to enable medical record interoperability, and which is coming to Australia this year.
