HL7

In Phase 2 pilots, four healthcare organizations helped HL7 refine its FHIR Genomics specification but  uncovered many remaining hurdles to true interoperability.

With EMR upgrades, Penn and Rush now have structured genomic data informing clinical decision support in their precision oncology programs, but much work remains.

After formalizing the FHIR interoperability standard, HL7 offers data-usage examples to nonacademic providers looking to start or advance precision medicine programs.

The company recently licensed the university's system, which codes pathology reports in SNOMED and generates HL7 messages.

The University of Nebraska Medical Center has created a SNOMED-CT and LOINC extension to make a cancer pathology report as "readily presentable as a CBC."

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.
