ASAP 2018 Midyear

PHSI President Tim Kosty presented “Interoperability, FHIR, and Blockchain: Where Do We Go from Here?” at the American Society for Automation in Pharmacy (ASAP) 2018 Midyear Conference. Tim’s presentation reviewed the challenges in developing and the progress in creating an interoperable health system, including the announcement from Apple that it will be creating a patient health record using the fast healthcare interoperability resources (FHIR) process. He explored the challenges for healthcare technology companies, healthcare providers, pharmacies, and patients, and discussed whether these efforts solve the right problem and whether technology such as blockchain will make these efforts obsolete.
