The LightMyFHIR blog is created and maintained by a group of MITRE engineers involved with HL7 FHIR*. Some of our past and current projects include:

  • hData – the first normative HL7 specification for RESTful health data exchange
  • Crucible – a tool for testing FHIR servers
  • Intervention Engine – patient huddle and risk assessment tool using FHIR that includes a “work-in-progress” Go implementation of a FHIR DSTU2 server
  • Bonnie – a tool for testing electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQM)
  • Cypress – Meaningful Use Stage 2 Testing and Certification tool
  • Synthea – a synthetic health record generator

MITRE Corporation 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 Health FFRDC, a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) sponsored by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).  As the only broadly healthcare-focused FFRDC, the Health FFRDC supports many of the complex analysis and critical thinking requirements that encompass the business, policy, technology, and operational interests across CMS and HHS.
