FAST Supports Scalability of FHIR
The FHIR at Scale Taskforce (FAST) identifies Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) scalability gaps, defines solutions to address current barriers, and identifies needed infrastructure for scalable FHIR solutions.
FAST approached its work by first analyzing FHIR pilots, prototypes and functional use cases already underway to evaluate potential trouble spots. The team then considered and documented various approaches and solutions. These proposed solutions were then socialized through the FAST Technical Learning Community (TLC), conference presentations, collaborative SME Sessions and Connectathons. FAST work continues as the teams transform FAST solution concepts into actionable and implementable forms whether HL7 Implementations Guides, industry guidance or assets.

FAST Transitioned to an HL7 FHIR Accelerator
A cross-stakeholder team built and executed a plan to transition FAST from an ONC-convened initiative to an HL7 FHIR Accelerator focused on the infrastructure needed to scale FHIR. The transition team established the accelerator's transitional scope of work, governance framework, and operating and funding models and recruited and onboarded the founding member organizations. The FAST steering and operating Committees are now in place and work will continue under the new governance structure.
