Healthcare is the slowest moving industry, and has yet to be transformed by the social/mobile/analytics/cloud platform. RIght now, one key barrier is that you can't move data around effectively. The FHIR standard is starting to change that - maybe. This presentation will review the FHIR project's origins, governance, open source credentials, and prospects and show that an agile open source standard can be a little lever with a big impact.
Grahame has experience in laboratory science, clinical research, clinical application development / marketing, open source development, and interoperability. Grahame has lead the development of a number of key healthcare data exchange standards, and is presently the project lead for the FHIR (http://hl7.org/fhir) project.
