A high-level overview of the two common formats for exchanging medical records.
Your test results, visit notes, and vital signs are all clinical documents. FHIR and C-CDA are the two primary data formats used to electronically share these medical records.
Both FHIR and C-CDA:
To sum up, C-CDA is a markup standard that creates large bundles of patient data. FHIR includes additional API elements that allow for unbundling of patient data.
Particle’s tools - including our API, industry-leading record locator 🌎, and stunningly reliable document converter ✨ - add additional functionality to both data formats.
These formats are enabling long-sought interoperability goals, pulling together data from smart devices to labs to hospitals. Explore them both to get the healthcare data you need!
Particle uses OAuth 2.0 Authorization Framework to ensure secure access to medical data to our customers. Given that this framework is very complex, we've put together an overview that explores how it works by sharing examples of how we use this technology in our everyday lives.
