  2. Update implementation Assign schedules and plans for care, evaluate risk

    and priority. Capture data Multiple incompatible apps storing data in many formats. Partial integration with data in laboratories and hospitals. Refer and aggregate Push and pull from external systems, transform and calculate. • Enable workforce supervision • Pathway to ML 1) The Health Information System Loop for Diagnostics Field activities Processing Planning
  3. 2) FHIR to manage integration points In the US, FHIR

    mandated by law through the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology. Other countries have related mandates. Widely used Flexible and extensible FHIR data structures • Restricted to define essential elements for compatibility • Extended for locality specific requirements Vibrant community Standard being actively updated and evolved as it further matures. Speciality expert groups to match workflows to reality.
