open is an attitude

"Health IT platforms must be open... The quality of being open is what allows independent developers to build 'apps' and extensions that work with the existing health IT platform".

Substitutable Medical Applications and Reusable Technologies (SMART)

SMART creates application interoperability, where clinicians can substitute best of breed applications within the EHR. This is a win for developers, because now once an app is created with SMART, it can be used across a number of platforms. Innovative developers will be able to reach a broader market of potential users, while at the same time enabling clinicians to have a more robust offering.

Fast Health Interoperability Resources (FHIR)

The HL7® FHIR® standard promises to be more convenient for developers. It is based on modern web-based API technology, which makes it easier for systems to exchange granular data elements that make up the patient’s record rather than entire documents. Together, SMART and FHIR enable clinicians to access pluggable apps directly within their workflow.
