Bring FHIR to Life
with Firely

Our mission

We have a world in mind in which data drives better healthcare. Making healthcare data easily accessible for patients, doctors and all parties involved in the healthcare delivery chain is crucial to this.
In one word: interoperability.

We believe that the adoption and implementation of FHIR are key to achieving this. ​And therefore we’re dedicated to simplifying the worldwide implementation of FHIR. We enable developers to foster global interoperability.

What is FHIR

We make healthcare data flow. We bring FHIR to Life. 

Our Story

Firely Team

As FHIR pioneers, we are shaping the future of healthcare every day. Being one of the initiators of FHIR, our decades of experience have given us a deep understanding of the FHIR standard. We love to use this expertise to do what we are passionate about: creating great software. ​

We are a group of software engineers, support engineers and FHIR consultants, based in the Netherlands (Amsterdam) and the United States (NY), who believe FHIR is the key to making healthcare data flow. And better data drives better healthcare.

We take a leading role in the FHIR community as the driving force behind FHIR DevDays and a founding member of the FHIR Business Alliance. We offer certified products to help you navigate healthcare regulations while embracing innovation. And we guide your FHIR implementation with training and consulting services. 

Our background

The founders of FHIR

The early days

2011

Starting from scratch to build a data standard that would truly enable worldwide interoperability was a challenge right up our alley. We – while still working at Furore – jumped on board with a few key beliefs in our minds: true interoperability requires everyone to participate.

Starting Firely

Founding Firely

2015

When FHIR started to get some shape and form, our belief in its future started growing on us. That was the moment to found Firely: A 100% FHIR-dedicated company that helps the healthcare industry bring FHIR to life, run by a bunch of passionate nerds who like to create great software.

Scaling up

2022

FHIR adoption worldwide is growing and FHIR is opening up new, innovative use cases for players in the ecosystem. Regulations are more and more stimulating or mandating the use of FHIR. We continue to do what we love and grow our business overseas.

Fun fact: Our CTO Ewout Kramer was actually one of the team members to first put the FHIR standard on the map. If you’re interested to read more about this, go check out this blog!

“The success of FHIR is a team effort, but Firely was the first to commit. They have been there from the beginning, with outstanding development expertise and support for the community. They provide an open source library, they organize FHIR DevDays, and they co-founded the FHIR Business Alliance (FHIRBall). Firely makes an exceptional contribution to health equality.”
