Sri Lanka’s digital health blueprint highlights the power of FHIR
For two weeks in February the Ona team traveled to Sri Lanka to build and deploy a FHIR native app for diabetes screening. We are collaborating with the Health Information Systems Programme Sri Lanka (HISP SL), the Sri Lanka Ministry of Health, and the World Diabetes Foundation (WDF).
Introducing mobile mapping on OpenSRP FHIR to support precision healthcare
We’re delighted to add Kujaku, an Android GeoJSON mapping library, to the OpenSRP FHIR Core community health management app. Check out the demo walkthrough above, which shows a map of households color coded by urgency of health visit, then continue reading to learn how we envision this technology to be used for precision healthcare.
Ona at FHIR DevDays 2022
Back in June, I was part of the Ona contingent attending the 2022 HL7 FHIR DevDays in Cleveland, Ohio. This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me to visit the U.S., learn more about FHIR, and hone my FHIR skills.
Eight Reasons Why FHIR is Important for Global Health
FHIR is a data standard evolved from HL7, which pioneered the field of health data exchange. Importantly, since its introduction a decade ago, it has become the globally accepted standard describing how to represent and exchange health data.
Powering interoperability with a FHIR to DHIS2 adapter
The HL7 FHIR standard is emerging as an integral solution to the much discussed interoperability challenges in global health. However, there are many operational platforms that use proprietary formats and there is a large quantity of data “locked” in those proprietary formats. As new projects go live at scale we are building tools to 1) unlock
Introducing Quest: FHIR Native Case Management
HL7 FHIR provides a standardized and popular way for digital health systems to represent health data and associated processes. We are excited to introduce Quest, an open source app that lets you use FHIR to define forms and capture data to take advantage of the growing Android FHIR and WHO SMART guidelines ecosystem.
Clinical Decision Support and Measure Reporting in FHIR
Through clinical decision support (CDS) and measure reporting, FHIR gives us powerful tools to encode algorithms for healthcare workflows and define metrics that track patient care. The HL7 standards of Clinical Quality Language (CQL) and FHIRPath expressions let us express both our CDS and measures in a portable way.
Google Summer of Code 2021: Healthcare Apps on FHIR
We are underway in the Google Summer of Code 2021, in partnership with Google to build the Android FHIR SDK powering next-generation offline-capable, mobile-first healthcare apps using Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (commonly referred to as FHIR and pronounced ‘Fire’).
Introducing OpenSRP FHIR Core - Why we are going all in on FHIR
When I first heard of HL7 FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource), I think, like most, l understood its application as a data exchange standard with promises of facilitating interoperability.
