Unlike the Wizard of OZ, there are no illusions being produced behind the curtain; with the FHIR standard these will be real. FHIR enables these levels of integration because it is based on API’s, making the company in the healthcare food-chain able to seamlessly integrate healthcare information into their business applications. FHIR also documents the necessary infrastructure and authentication standard to make sure that the integration is both seamless and secured.

  3. 3. Building the Foundation for Digital Innovation Who is iSOA Group • Presented more than 10 times at IBM Impact/InterConnect/Think conferences on DataPower and APIM • Participated with IBM in the development of IBM DataPower and API Connect certification tests • Presenting at IBM Tech Conference Apr 30-May 2, 2019 in TX. • IBM recognized expert in DataPower/API Management with 100’s of customers across multiple industries • Over 14 years experience with DataPower since IBM acquisition • Multiple / cross industry experience, with expertise in Healthcare and Finance • Training • OnDemand Services for DataPower, API Connect, IIB, MQ and WebSphere App Server • Help Customers plan and implement the right toolset to move to FHIR 4/23/19 3
  4. 4. Building the Foundation for Digital Innovation What is FHIR? • FHIR is:  About clinical information exchange  “Resources” to represent clinical ‘things’  A well defined API supporting all paradigms  A community effort 4/23/19 4
  5. 5. Building the Foundation for Digital Innovation Architectures • FHIR can be seen from many perspectives/contexts 4/23/19 5 FHIR PHR App FHIR Interface FHIR v2 v3 conversion DB
  6. 6. Building the Foundation for Digital Innovation FHIR Resources • “Resources” are:  Basic Building Block. Small, logically discrete sharable units  Defined behavior and meaning  Known identity / location (URL)  Smallest unit of transaction  Solving wide range of healthcare related problems (clinical & Admin) 4/23/19 6 Metadata Resource Narrative Extensions Elements Extensions
  7. 7. Building the Foundation for Digital Innovation Paradigms • FHIR supports 4 interoperability paradigms  REST interface  Exchange Documents  Send/Receive Messages  Expose/Invoke Services 4/23/19 7 REST Documents Messages Services
  8. 8. Building the Foundation for Digital Innovation IBM and Paradigms • IBM provides & has enabling software that help integrate the FHIR Paradigms  API Connect  Aspera  Event Streams 4/23/19 8
  9. 9. Building the Foundation for Digital Innovation API Connect 4/23/19 9 Built on Open Standards
  10. 10. Building the Foundation for Digital Innovation Key Enablers • API Connect provides  REST services  SMART on FHIR Security implementations  OAuth2  Client ID and Secret  Additional security • IBM Event Streams  Supports Messages and Services • IBM Aspera  Provides high performance FTP resource exchange 4/23/19 10
  11. 11. Building the Foundation for Digital Innovation API Connect and FHIR 4/23/19 11 Security OAuth2 OIDC SSL ClientId/Secret And many more API OpenAPI Create Model Extend Management Dev Portal Products Plans Analytics API Documentation API Testing FHIR Resources Transformation JSON XML How API Connect support critical FHIR Integration and Interoperability
  12. 12. Building the Foundation for Digital Innovation Security • The API Connect security capabilities map up well with the SMART Application Launch Implementation Guide.  Supporting  SSL/TLS  OAuth2 and scopes  App protection  Support for public and confidential apps  Registering with API Connect • Ability to apply security to backend services  Token switching  Other security models 4/23/19 12 Security OAuth2 OIDC SSL ClientId/Secret And many more
  13. 13. Building the Foundation for Digital Innovation API Definitions • API Connect utilizes the OpenAPI specifications and implements OpenAPI extensions that provide policies within an Assembly feature that enhance the API with additional security (eg. JWT) and logic and transformation constructs to supplement the FHIR resource requests. 4/23/19 13 API OpenAPI Create Model Extend
  14. 14. Building the Foundation for Digital Innovation Management • When providing FHIR resource APIs to consumers it is important that the APIs are managed. Some of the capabilities you gain when utilizing API Connect are:  Analytics (for both Providers and Consumers)  Versioning  Rate-limiting  API documentation and API testing from the Developer Portal  Management of clientId/secrets 4/23/19 14 Management Dev Portal Products Plans Analytics API Documentation API Testing
  15. 15. Building the Foundation for Digital Innovation FHIR Resources • While you could use the transformation capabilities of API Connect to perform transformations, most likely that will be accomplished with an ESB. • What you can use API Connect to do is manage routing to consumer specific resources. For instance, not all resources will contain all information for every consumer. • Where resources reside you can use API Connect to route the FHIR requests to the appropriate server whether its on-premise or on a cloud provider. • API Connect supports the REST methods you will need to create, read, update and delete FHIR resources. 4/23/19 15 FHIR Resources Transformation JSON XML
  16. 16. Building the Foundation for Digital Innovation Putting it Together 4/23/19 16 • “The reason that everybody likes planning is that nobody has to do anything.” ― Jerry Brown, Former Governor of California Plans for adopting FHIR implementation? 1. Start with a Workshop to sharpen the vision 1. Understand requirements/capabilities 2. Establish your infrastructure to support FHIR 1. API Management 2. On Premise/Cloud 3. Start small. 4. A simple “spark” to enable FHIR
  17. 17. Building the Foundation for Digital Innovation Summary • The FHIR standard supports 4 paradigms: REST, Documents, Messages and Services • API Connect supports the SMART on FHIR authentication use cases • API Connect provides you with additional capabilities to enhance the routing, transformation and security of your FHIR APIs • Customers need analytics and governance to ensure quality in their FHIR endeavors. • Start planning now. 4/23/19 17
