Details

The Mobile Retrieve Form for Data Capture (mRFD) profile provides a method for gathering data within a user’s current application to meet the requirements of an external system. mRFD supports the retrieval of forms from a form source, the display and completion of a form and return of instance data from the display application to the source application.

The profile was created in conjunction with HL7 and uses the SMART on FHIR EHR Launch capacity as a generic framework for access to external web applications.

mRFD also allows dynamic data collection, both from within the form-requesting EHR, and from external sources that may have useful data that can be retrieved via secured RESTful transactions.

Systems Affected

  • EHR systems may find mRFD to be an effective method of launching external applications.
  • Web application developers may find the standardized security and authentication steps within mRFD to provide a clear direction for integration with a variety of data sources.
