What is FHIR and Why it Matters
FHIR is the new standard for how healthcare data can be exchanged, and because it’s now a federally mandated standard for payers and health information technology tools, we are launching a set of educational tracks including the 3-Minute Diameter Download video series.
In this video, we’ll dive into the basics:
- What is FHIR and how it compares to other standards
- Advantages of FHIR
- What FHIR Doesn’t Address

In addition to our video series, join interoperability expert John D’Amore for our webinar on-demand: FHIR 101 (or, everything you want to know about FHIR but were afraid to ask)
August 27th, 1:30-2:15pm (ET)
In just 45 minutes you’ll learn the basics on how FHIR works, hear from a recognized data standards authority on why FHIR matters, and get caught up on the timeline for health plans to comply with CMS rules related to FHIR.
Deadline is Approaching
The CMS deadline to provide members access to their health data is less than 12 months away. Compliance requires use of the mandated FHIR standard. And that’s just the beginning. Other deadlines related to data interchange follow fast and furious. Start out in the wrong direction, and you risk a negative impact on member satisfaction on top of missing the window for compliance.
