Free Download Enables Conversion of Standard-Format Files to FHIR Resources

HealthLX announced today that it is offering healthcare payers a free resource called FHIR Starter Pak (FSP) to help jumpstart their path to compliance with the CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule. HealthLX’s mission has always been to radically improve healthcare interoperability by embracing innovative approaches to data integration and is offering this contribution to the entire healthcare marketplace at no charge. According to CMS Final Rule mandates, most payers must enable member record exchange by July 1, 2021, or risk possible enforcement actions.

“As a founding member of Health Level Seven International's (HL7) Da Vinci Project, we know how important these regulations are. We’ve been working closely with the ONC/HL7 led standards organizations to define the national workflow standards that will enable compliance with the Patient Access API and other interoperability mandates,” said Will Tesch, CEO of HealthLX. “We are passionate about improving healthcare for all, and are offering the FHIR Starter Pak free download to educate those who need to comply with the CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule.”

“The FHIR Starter Pak is a fully contained FHIR server and FHIR data repository with CSV templates,” said Charlie Provenzano, HealthLX’s COO. “With the FHIR Starter Pak, payers can better understand the data elements that make up each FHIR resource, and how each element could be derived from their existing data. Payers can also run queries and see how each data element will present when it is queried through the FHIR server.”

As a free resource, the FSP does not provide security, message history, automatic alerts, custom data ingestion or custom FHIR endpoints. Payers can access these features in HealthLX’s premium FHIR Enterprise, which enables payers to cross the finish line on compliance without incurring unnecessary costs, spending the time to build their own custom solutions, or replacing legacy systems. However, for payers comfortable in applying their own security, provenance, and other monitoring using their own development efforts, HealthLX’s FHIR Starter Pak is a useful resource to leverage as they work on their permanent solution for compliance.

The FHIR Starter Pak is available as a Docker image for easy installation and includes documentation for configuration. Payers are encouraged to visit to sign up and access the download.
