An Open Source Initiative for FHIR based Fitness and Lifestyle records

A huge amount of healthcare data is generated each day from a number of sources like hospitals, clinics etc. To perform research, analysis and make the maximum utilization of the health records this data is now digitized. These electronic records require a standardized format to make them easily available across the healthcare ecosystem. FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) Specification is used to standardize the format for exchanging healthcare data.

FHIR has been commonly used to exchange medical patient data but has not been taken advantage of to share lifestyle and fitness data. Our aim is to transform the data from the health applications like Google Fit, HealthKit and Fitbit into the FHIR format.
