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 History

FAST Is Transitioning to an HL7 FHIR Accelerator

A cross-stakeholder team was formed to build a plan for transitioning FAST from an ONC-convened initiative to an HL7 FHIR Accelerator focused on the infrastructure needed to scale FHIR.  The team has been working to develop the initial proposal for the accelerator's scope of work, governance framework, and operating and funding models and is currently speaking with organizations who are interested in becoming founding members to help shape and finalize the plan, as well as drive the strategy and roadmap for FAST.  Launch for the accelerator is planned for Q1 2022.
