Welcome to the LightMyFHIR blog. For several years, folks at MITRE Corporation have been working with and working on FHIR. We have many experiences to share with the broader FHIR community. This blog is one of the ways the MITRE team will be sharing our ideas, suggestions, creations, and conniptions.
Why is MITRE interested in FHIR? Our work is part of a larger mission to make healthcare in the USA more accessible and affordable. MITRE is a not-for-profit chartered to work in the public interest. We support the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Veterans Affairs in this mission.
MITRE operates the CMS Alliance to Modernize Healthcare (CAMH), a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) sponsored by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). As the only broadly healthcare-focused FFRDC, CAMH supports many of the complex analysis and critical thinking requirements that encompass the business, policy, technology, and operational interests across CMS and HHS.
We launch the LightMyFHIR blog with the goal of making contributions to the FHIR community.
