of Ripple Foundation
(with a little help from friends including Grahame Grieve!
) have been busy pulling together this paper on FHIR and openEHR in an attempt to answer those questions.
Setting aside personal passions, this paper is in an attempt to open minds, challenge thinking and look at ways in which the rich ecosystem of standards
