In 2014, with pressure growing to build intersectoral communications, support mobile and cloud-based applications and create an immediate interoperability solution, the first draft standard for trial use of the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR)  standard of HL7 in Germany was published. FHIR is an open source standard which combines the benefits of HL7 versions 2 and 3 and CDA. It also makes use of the benefits of modern web technology such as XML and JSON and by using a REST-defined application programming interface enables rapid electronic data transfer and an easy standardised implementation of healthcare data.
