By Rien Wertheim – Wes Rishel is a former Gartner analyst and HL7 leader. He was one of the first healt IT opinion leaders to recognize the potential of the FHIR standard. Early 2014 Mr. Rishel was interviewed about the same topic by Rene Spronk (https://vimeo.com/106445729). He then foresaw the first counter reaction to FHIR starting in 2015.
I asked Mr. Rishel about FHIR and the Gartner Hype Cycle, about the influence of interoperability and FHIR on the EHR landscape and about the speed of adoption of FHIR.
