The Apple Health Integration Guide
Using Smile CDR to Power SMART on FHIR Data Sharing
With health data on the iPhone, third-party applications of the user’s choice can provide novel insights into the user’s health that cut across information silos.
Integrating with Apple Health is great for organizations seeking to drive patient engagement. Having data on their iPhone gives patients frictionless access to their health records whenever they need them. It can also increase awareness and uptake of patient portals since users can self- authenticate in the Health app with their existing portal credentials.
Apple’s Health application leverages the latest interoperability standards like SMART and FHIR to aggregate health records from different providers for secure viewing and storage on the user’s iPhone.
Smile CDR has years of standards governance and implementation experience as the maintainers of HAPI FHIR, which is the reference implementation of the FHIR specification in Java. It’s also the most widely adopted stack globally for FHIR implementations.
Smile CDR leveraged this experience to build out an enterprise grade platform that provides an ideal integration enabler for providers looking to accelerate and simplify data sharing with Apple Health.
