We updated our code to be compliant with both SMART and FHIR and as of January 2015 we became the first Epic-based hospital system to run unmodified SMART apps within our EHR (in our proof of concept environment).
In order to have a compelling demo, we wanted to show several types of apps running in multiple environments. We chose:
- Growth Chart, an open-source pediatric growth chart app with an award-winning interface
- Meducation RS, a closed-source app by Polyglot that presents a patient's medication list in simple language translated into 21 languages
- Duke PillBox, a skill-based interactive learning tool to help patients teach themselves how to take their medications as part of the discharge process. This was developed by MedAppTech for a Duke research initiative.
