MSK Blaze FHIR Server Documentation

Clinical trials attempt to answer questions. To help do this effectively, it’s important to leverage best in class technology to rapidly increase the speed with which research data can be shared and tear down barriers that impede this process. Sharing research data faster can lead to better outcomes for patients, less time spent on manual coding and redundant data mapping, and reduced costs typically associated with new drug or therapy development. By leveraging the HL7 FHIR standard (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources), academic sites and clinical trial sponsors can unite to achieve these shared goals.

To this end, Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) has developed a FHIR server for clinical research data. This server is named “Blaze.”
