3a. Project Scope

SMART Web Messaging enables tight UI integration between EHRs and embedded SMART apps via HTML5's Web Messaging. Use SMART Web Messaging to push unsigned orders, note snippets, risk scores or UI suggestions directly to the clinician's EHR session. Built on the browser's javascript window.postMessage function, SMART Web Messaging is a simple, native API for health apps embedded within the user's workflow.


3b. Project Need

Within a clinical workflow system (such as an EHR), SMART apps can be launched automatically at specific points in the workflow, or on demand in response to a user interaction, including clicking on a suggestion from a CDS Hooks service. Once launched, a web app is typically embedded within a patient’s chart and communicates with the EHR via RESTful FHIR APIs. These RESTful APIs are great for CRUD operations on a database, but don’t enable tight workflow integration or access to draft FHIR resources that may only exist in memory on the EHR client.
