Simona Carini (Open mHealth) and Eric Haas (Health eData) will co-present the “Open mHealth (OmH) and FHIR” session at the upcoming HL7 FHIR DevDays in Redmond, WA, on Tuesday June 11, 11:20 am to 12:00 pm.
HL7 FHIR DevDays is a 3-day event (June 10-12) where IT professionals in healthcare can learn about FHIR in a collaborative environment. The event offers a rich, multiple-track program and chances to work collaboratively and network. The event website includes details on the program (keynotes, tutorials, tools and project presentations, Let’s build! sessions and Meet & Code slots), the speakers and special tracks.
The Open mHealth (OmH) and FHIR session will introduce the OmH-on-FHIR Implementation Guide, which describes how to use FHIR and OmH to pull health data from popular third-party APIs like Google Fit and FitBit. Using OmH shimmer and an “Open mHealth to FHIR” server, this data is made accessible to a FHIR SMART client either in the native OmH schema format or as FHIR resources (typically FHIR Observations).
The session will describe:
- how mHealth data like step count from Google Fit or FitBit can be visualized as part of the normal EHR workflow using OmH standards and FHIR via a SMART-on-FHIR app
- the architecture used to capture the data from the mHealth apps and present it to a practitioner using OmH standards and FHIR
- mappings from OmH schemas to FHIR to allow the data to be fully integrated into a patient’s FHIR-based medical record.
The OmH-on-FHIR Implementation Guide and “Open mHealth to FHIR” server are being developed as part of the NIH-funded grant “Open mHealth: Community-Based Data and Metadata Standards for Mobile Health” and reflects the collaboration between Open mHealth and HL7 FHIR.
