Additional Information: HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) is emerging as a next generation standards framework for facilitating health care and electronic health records-based data exchange. A number of major EHR vendors (e.g., Epic) have adopted the FHIR standard and this provides great opportunities to enable better use of EHR data for the OHDSI community. In addition, FHIR provides a standards-based framework based on the RESTful architecture that can be leveraged for disseminating the OHDSI data and research results.
