About FHIR

Some years ago US government mandated that all electronic medical record data be available in FHIR format for patient access. This mandate has been extended to claims and other insurance coverage data. Once complete, this will allow patients easily access and sharing of their medical claims data through API, which will have big implications for research, insurance and tech industries.
