CARIN HL7® FHIR® Directory Framework Initiative
A public directory of FHIR endpoints, simplifying how healthcare organziations and third-party apps find and share endpoint information
Payers must make their API endpoints “publicly accessible” by posting them directly on the payer’s website or via publicly accessible hyperlink(s). The community asked for help and the CARIN Alliance answered with CARIN HL7® FHIR® Directory Framework Initiative.
Don’t be a Blocker
For Payer to Payer Data Exchange, the payer community needs to know how to engage with with one another. A public directory with each payer's conformance statement helps to alleviate the costs and burdens of compliance on payers subject to CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule.
Make it Easy
Providing information in a public directory that is accessible by payers and third-party application developers reduces the cost and burn on payer organizations to provide the information to each payer or third-party application individually. We also hope that other private-sector partners who are developing endpoint directories can use these best practices in their solution offerings.
