September Featured Resource: Direct, DirectTrust, and FHIR: A Value Proposition
Authors: Authors: Grahame Grieve, HL7 Product Director for FHIR; David Kibbe, Luis Maas, Greg Meyer, and Bruce Schreiber, members of the DirectTrust Policy Committee
FHIR is a new standard that defines a web API and related specifications for health data exchange. Direct is an existing federal standard that is widely used in the USA for the exchange of healthcare data. There are differing views across the healthcare system as to the correct relationship between the two standards and communities. This white paper proposes a way to understand how the FHIR and Direct communities and technical specifications for each standard should relate to each other.
