SMART-on-FHIR implemented over i2b2

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

We have developed an interface to serve patient data from Informatics for Integrating Biology and the Bedside (i2b2) repositories in the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) format, referred to as a SMART-on-FHIR cell. The cell serves FHIR resources on a per-patient basis, and supports the “substitutable” modular third-party applications (SMART) OAuth2 specification for authorization of client applications. It is implemented as an i2b2 server plug-in, consisting of 6 modules: authentication, REST, i2b2-to-FHIR converter, resource enrichment, query engine, and cache. The source code is freely available as open source. We tested the cell by accessing resources from a test i2b2 installation, demonstrating that a SMART app can be launched from the cell that accesses patient data stored in i2b2. We successfully retrieved demographics, medications, labs, and diagnoses for test patients. The SMART-on-FHIR cell will enable i2b2 sites to provide simplified but secure data access in FHIR format, and will spur innovation and interoperability. Further, it transforms i2b2 into an apps platform.

No MeSH data available.


The SMART-on-FHIR i2b2 cell allows SMART apps to run on an i2b2 data warehouse, thereby supplementing data and computing resources to an EHR system for executing SMART apps.

ocw079-F3: The SMART-on-FHIR i2b2 cell allows SMART apps to run on an i2b2 data warehouse, thereby supplementing data and computing resources to an EHR system for executing SMART apps.

Mentions: I2b2 software has generally been deployed in a sidecar approach at most institutions, wherein a copy of the data from the EHR is stored in the i2b2 repository (Figure 3). The i2b2 client is used to interactively query the repository to identify patient cohorts for hypothesis testing. I2b2 software has evolved to provide a secure and scalable environment for such research operations. Another advantage of this approach is that the EHR system is not overloaded by research operations, allowing the EHR to focus on clinical operations.Figure 3.
