HL7 FHIR is a data exchange interoperability standard for healthcare that uses RESTful APIs for data exchange. Before FHIR was introduced, HL7 worked without APIs, so APIs have actually taken HL7 integration to a whole new level and connected your Epic systems and applications with other applications securely.
An Epic HL7 feed is an HL7 interface data feed that enables the transmission of administrative as well as medical events to and from different systems. They are generally either outbound or inbound and associated with different events occurring in the healthcare setting.
Epic Bridges HL7 interface is the Epic interfacing toolkit used for Electronic Data Exchange (EDI). It includes utilities for managing errors and monitoring interfaces and is used to specify and describe transmitted data is mapped onto Epic master files.
