Following last year's test of FHIR Genomics, a diverse set of organizations will look to demonstrate that the standard can help them feed genomic data to EHRs.

Following several Sync for Genes pilots, FHIR Genomics advocates are pushing for adoption of their standard to make omics data compatible with EHRs.

At the HL7 Genomics Conference, a FHIR Genomics developer unveiled the Consortium for Agile Genomics to promote implementation of the nascent standard.

Sync for Genes seeks to leverage HL7 FHIR infrastructure to communicate information from clinical genomic labs in a format for universal use across medicine.
