Imagine a world in which health information is available when and where you need it.
Current Forum Work
The Healthcare Forum has evaluated the Federal Health Information Model (FHIM) for the Federal Health Architecture (FHA) program, located in the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC). Its members have published White Papers about advancing healthcare interoperability from an Enterprise Architecture design perspective grounded in the view that business runs on information technology and technology advancement depends on business. Members are in the process of developing a Health Enterprise Reference Architecture (HERA) for effecting controlled, positive change in the use of Health IT to promote business success supporting patient-centricity

The HERA is a framework for the development of a reference architecture for a healthcare company, from big to small (50 employees or more). It is a logical, cognitive map that can help most healthcare stakeholders improve their business by using IT in a smarter way. This Snapshot is valid through through October 10, 2018 only.
The Open Group Healthcare Forum seeks to advance interoperability to exchange key health and healthcare data.
The goal of the Federal Health Information Model (FHIM) is to support semantic interoperability and harmonize information requirements from federal partners and standards organizations. One might say it aims to bring Boundaryless Information Flow™ to Healthcare. How well does it do this? How can it be used to enhance interoperability on a broad scale? These are the questions addressed in this non-technical paper written by private and public sector global and enterprise architecture experts.
