FHIR stands for Fast Healthcare Interoperable Resource.FHIR combines the best features of HL7 V2, HL7 V3, and CDA, while leveraging the latest web service technologies.

The design of FHIR is based on RESTful web services.This is in contrast to the majority of IHE profiles which are based on SOAP web services. With RESTful web services, the basic HTTP operations are incorporated including Create, Read, Update and Delete.FHIR is based on modular components called “resources,” and these resources can be combined together to solve clinical and administrative problems in a practical way. The resources can be extended and adapted to provide a more manageable solution to the healthcare demand for optionality and customization. Systems can easily read the extensions using the same framework as other resources.

In simple, FHIR is to exchange patient/clinical information with other system,once after the successful authentication for the information.
