HL7® Launches FHIR® Accelerator Program

Health Level Seven® International (HL7®), the global authority for interoperability in health care information technology with affiliates in more than 30 countries, launched the HL7 FHIR® Accelerator Program. As part of that, the CARIN Alliance has recently been approved as an HL7 FHIR Accelerator project. Ryan Howells, CARIN Alliance Project Manager and Principal at Leavitt Partners was quoted in the release, saying, “We are grateful for the opportunity to work more closely with HL7 as part of the FHIR Accelerator Program as we work to develop additional FHIR implementation guides so consumers can get access to more of their health information.”
