This review will discuss the benefits of the current proposed solution Fast Health Interoperability Resources (FHIR) focusing on health services, including health providers, patient and operational aspects involving information technology and financial benefits. The review will also discuss the challenges of health system with procuring an FHIR innovation examining security, standarsiation of systems, legal, and ethical limitations.

2.0 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR)
Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) is a standard of healthcare data that aims to provide the exchange of electronic health data using interoperability resources to transfer data into a readable format (Mousa, 2016). The standard was produced to provide consistent framework principles in the implementation ‘aiming to support modern approaches and be more developer-friendly for information’ and data (Mousa, 2016).
