Manage healthcare data in the cloud

Azure API for FHIR enables rapid exchange of data in the FHIR format and is backed by a managed Platform-as-a Service (PaaS) offering in the cloud. Simplify data management with a single, consistent solution for protected health information. Move your clinical health data to the cloud and increase interoperability using the FHIR data standard. Quickly connect your existing data sources, such as electronic health record systems or research databases. Create new options for analytics, machine learning, and actionable intelligence across your health data.

Expand interoperability with FHIR

Connect with any system that uses FHIR APIs for read, write, search, and other functions. Consolidate, normalize, and apply machine learning using clinical data from electronic health records, clinician and patient dashboards, remote monitoring programs, and more. Expand interoperability across your internal data systems or with external databases that have FHIR® APIs. Increase the value of your data and respond to changing business dynamics more easily.

Control data access at scale

Manage how healthcare data is stored and accessed with RBAC. Increase security and reduce administrative workloads by applying data controls based on role definitions you create.

Keep healthcare data secure

Security intelligence in the cloud helps safeguard protected health information. PHI is isolated in a unique database for each API instance, with multi-region failover and advanced threat protection.

Audit logs and tracking

Quickly track where your data is going with built-in audit logs. Track access, creation, modification, and reads within each data store.

What is FHIR?

The healthcare industry is rapidly adopting the emerging standard HL7 FHIR, or Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources. This robust, extensible data model standardizes semantics and data exchange so all systems using FHIR can work together.
