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!
With Particle’s new round of Series B financing, we’re going to pair data access with insights that help health professionals use their patient data in better ways.
