The benefits of FHIR for a microservices enabled Laboratory Information System

Mar 14, 2017 , Posted By: Nicolas Echavarria


We've been working on an FHIR-compliant REST API with IBM Integration Bus that allows interoperation between a Laboratory Information System (LIS) and a Hospital Information (HIS) System with EHR (Electronic Health Record), here are the benefits we've encountered with our approach.
• Feasibility of divesting a legacy LIS while simultaneously implementing and progressing a new WAS/NodeJS/IIB/DB2 based LIS.
• Capability to innovate came back to the organization.
• The operation of a multi-layered and micro-services oriented architecture supported on state of the art development tools.
• Ability to have a development team with lower dependency on individual developers.
• Future-proofing interoperability using REST API and FHIR
• Flexible services, nimble development, faster execution.
• Almost limitless scalability with IIB and DB2 pureScale
• Enablement of new Systems of Engagement via BPM, Digital Experience and MobileFirst
• Responsive design in all GUIs and REST API call for every resource.
• Enablement of new Systems of Insight via Watson Analytics.
