A next generation standards framework created by HL7. FHIR combines the best features of HL7's v2HL7 v3 and CDA product lines while leveraging the latest web standards and applying a tight focus on implementability.


  1. The FHIR standard that defines a set of resources that represent granular clinical concepts. 
  2. The resources can be managed in isolation, or aggregated into complex documents.
  3. Technically, FHIR is designed for the web; the resources are based on simple XML or JSON structures, with an http-based RESTful protocol where each resource has predictable URL. Where possible, open internet standards are used for data representation.


  • Full name - Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources
  • Abbreviation - FHIR, which is pronounced "Fire".
