Use of HL7 FHIR to structure data in epilepsy self-management applications
The expansion of health infrastructure to support the networking of actors in the healthcare system is rapidly growing and is forced by law in several nations. The solutions are based on international standards to ensure interoperability of existing and new health applications and future viability. In the EPItect project, a telemedicine infrastructure for epilepsy care was developed. This paper presents part of the conceptual work and focuses on the structural and semantic standardization of epilepsy data based on the international standard HL7 FHIR. The main contribution of this work is an implementation guide for the exchange of epilepsy related data between epilepsy self-management applications and health infrastructures.
