The main benefit to defining a Canadian SMART apps repository would be if we had some sort of a 'trust' mechanism where any app that met the requirements set by the registry would automatically be deemed a 'trusted' app available to be used against jurisdictional and Canadian EMR/EHR/HIS solutions. It would be pretty awesome if we could get the relevant stakeholders to agree on what those criteria were and come up with a business model to maintain such a repository, but it's not a small task.
I suppose we could have a registry of SMART apps that happen to support access using the Canadian baseline profiles. That wouldn't be so much a need as a "nice to have".
In terms of CDS Hooks endpoints, the CDS Hooks spec already defines a set of hooks. I'm not sure there's really a use-case for any Canadian-specific ones?
With new US FAST (FHIR at Scale) initiative, HIAL in mind and number of SMART projects popping up, do we need and is that possible/feasible to harmonize SMART/CDS Hooks protocols to be used similarly across different implementations?
The SMART on FHIR work stream is going to take a break in August and will resume in September. In August we're going to develop the work plan that we'll review in September. If you have topics that you'd like to see on the plan please share them in the forum. The topics we have to date are:
1) Getting source system vendors (e.g. HIS, EMR, etc.) to develop SMART on FHIR APIs
2) FHIRCast Overview and Demo
3) SMART on FHIR list of Canadian projects
