Re-envisioning Life Sciences Through the FHIR Gateway, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Share Article

In this free webinar, the featured speakers will highlight how FHIR is acting as a primary catalyst for health data interoperability to drive evidence-based insights in life sciences. Attendees will learn about the importance and need for Biopharmaceutical organizations, CROs and research sites to implement FHIR in their data infrastructure for data capture and exchange of real world data among life sciences stakeholders and regulatory authorities.

With FHIR being accepted and implemented across the healthcare domain it will solve a major hurdle of security and confidentiality of PHI and CCI.

Patient records are currently stored in disparate systems (care, pharmacy, lab) in varied clinical settings (hospital, primary care, community services), and in different formats (data models, structured vs. unstructured data) governed by different regulatory and privacy policies. There is a rise in the volume of source data such as genomics and self-monitoring devices data as technology becomes affordable and more prevalent.

The need of the hour is availability of structured and standardized data that can be easily integrated into research databases to support collection and verification of clinical study data, automated research work flow, accelerated data analysis, clinical decision support and other machine-based processes. HL7 FHIR continues its strong trajectory of global adoption across the healthcare industry because of its ability to provide a common, API standards-based window into disparate systems to provide a common platform for applications-based data access, sharing and reuse.

FHIR going forward will become an integral part of life sciences data exchange, as it is customizable and vendor neutral, thus paving way to a revolution in life sciences industry. With FHIR being accepted and implemented across the healthcare domain it will solve a major hurdle of security and confidentiality of PHI and CCI.

Join Shreejit Nair, SVP & Business Lead, Life Sciences Market, CitiusTech, Wayne Kubick, Chief Technology Officer, Health Level Seven International and Dr. W. Ed Hammond, PhD, Director, Duke Center for Health Informatics Duke Clinical & Translational Science Institute in a live webinar on Thursday, October 22, 2020 at 1pm EDT.
