National standards are rapidly evolving to support better interoperability of health-related data, encourage more efficient data reuse, and produce higher quality data for researchers and quality improvement specialists. Further, new standards are being developed to increase the accessibility of the data from EHR systems. These clinical data can be significant facilitators of clinical research.

In this 30-min presentation followed by Q&A, notable clinical informaticist Dr. Aziz Boxwala reviews the landscape of health information interoperability standards, focusing in particular on the FHIR specification from Health Level Seven. Dr. Boxwala provides an overview of the standard and a review of resources within FHIR relevant to clinical researchers, including those used for quality measurement and documentation.
