Health Data and FHIR

Team Leader
Health Data on FHIR

The Health Data and FHIR team are a team of engineers with expertise in the use of FHIR to build and integrate digital health systems.

 

Our Science

A lot of our work involves applying software engineering and data management techniques to the science produced by other teams in the Health Informatics Group, particularly the Health Data Interoperability and Clinical Terminology teams. We also look at the ways that using technology in the health sector (including clinical care and related areas such as medical education) interacts with human processes to influence health and system outcomes.

Impact on the Health System

Accelerating and promoting the use of FHIR and related standards to build and integrate digital solutions in the health sector.

Our Solutions

  • Ontoserver: Lowering the entry barriers for clinical terminology use. Allows effective search of clinical content using state-of-the-art information retrieval algorithms and simplifies the access to different clinical terminologies by providing a FHIR-based API and a syndication mechanism.
  • Case-Based Learning Platform: Electronic course delivery tool for teaching medical students about the use of electronical medical records as part of clinical care
  • Pathling: health data analytics solutions using FHIR and clinical terminology
  • snoMAP: tool for Emergency Department funding
