Aged care turns to FHIR for data standardisation and exchange
Aged care software vendors are being recruited to work on a national two-year project that aims to establish a minimum data set for the sector and build tools to enable data to be exchanged between software solutions and across care settings.
The project will use HL7's Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standard to enable the exchange of information between healthcare systems and solutions, following a similar project that is building FHIR implementation guides for data exchange between GP systems.
The project, named Aged Care Data Compare, will also allow aged care providers to benchmark themselves against industry standards and aims to create a library of quality indicators.
