Standardizing Medical Quality Assurance and Control in Germany Based on HL7� FHIR�

Author(s): Frank Oemig and Bernd Blobel

In Germany, vendors in cooperation with the responsible organizations have developed a powerful mechanism to supply data for medical quality assurance and control to public health agencies. However, this mechanism is proprietary and limited in some regards. On the other hand, by the current means it comprehensively documents the necessary requirements worth being analyzed in detail so that the shortcomings of the specification may be overcome by facilitating international standards. This paper provides the foundation for this approach and suggests a possible transition by introducing different possible options that can be facilitated independently.
