HL7 sets sail on Argonaut Australia in search of the golden FHIR
The Australian arm of standards organisation HL7 International is overseeing a localised version of the interoperability initiative the Argonaut Project, registering Argonaut Australia as a trademark and launching a community consultation on the project's structure and governance.
The Argonaut Project is a private sector collaborative involving major software vendors and healthcare organisations in the US that aims to advance the adoption of standards such as HL7's Fast Health Interoperability Resources (FHIR) and OAuth to improve health information exchange.
HL7 Australia is now launching a local version with the hope of preparing local vendors and healthcare providers for the outcomes of Argonaut, which promise to rapidly improve the interoperability of electronic health records. HL7 New Zealand has been invited to take part and the project has the in-principle support of the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA).
