Dicom Systems created FireBridge to aid in the implementation of FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources). Pronounced “Fire,” FHIR is the latest standard to be developed under the HL7 organization. This standard has quickly become one of the most popular protocols for joining disparate systems together and holds great promise for the development of an application-based approach to interoperability and health information exchange.

FireBridge enables any third party system in the Enterprise Imaging ecosystem to seamlessly integrate using the latest FHIR standards. The entities that embrace FHIR will be able to communicate up-to-the minute data across disparate systems, increasing health care quality, increasing patient access and use of health information and improving outcomes.
