Get familiar with interoperability terms
- An Open API is an application programming interface made available to software developers to encourage new ways to use the platform.
- HL7® FHIR® (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) defines how healthcare information can be exchanged between different computer systems regardless of how it is stored in those systems.
- OAuth2.0 is a protocol that allows a user to grant a third-party website or application access to the user’s protected resources, without necessarily revealing their long-term credentials or even their identity.
- A RESTful API transfers a representation of the state of a resource to the requester or endpoint. No client information is stored. It is perfect for Internet of Things and mobile app development.
- SMART is an open-source, standards-based API that solves data fragmentation challenges by standardizing how patient data is accessed and shared. It builds on the existing FHIR standard; hence it is called SMART on FHIR®.
- CDS HOOKS is software that reads when a physician is making a clinical decision such as prescribing a drug and automatically runs checks through SMART applications integrated into the EHR. The end result is either a prompt with alternative drugs that might be less expensive and deliver as good or better results or a link to an external app for further information.
