Be part of the revolution in Health Informatics

Firely is a group of software engineers, support engineers and FHIR consultants, based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Our customers are vendors, care providers and governments. We have been involved in HL7 FHIR since day one and have been contributing to the standard ever since. We live and breathe FHIR, we talk FHIR to our computers, our colleagues, and even our friends. Which, frankly, drives them crazy.

Our CTO Ewout Kramer together with Lloyd McKenzie from Canada joined the initiative of Grahame Grieve and formed what would become and still is the FHIR Core Team.

Exponential growth

The use of FHIR has grown exponentially since it was recognized as the key to interoperability in healthcare. It is being implemented by leading vendors and care providers and adopted by national health standards agencies in the Nordics, the UK, the Netherlands, the US, New Zealand and beyond.

Our FHIR team

Our FHIR team consist of 7 developers, who work closely with the FHIR core team, other developers around the world and our customers. With lots of humor, dedication and an open, innovative, yet critical mind. It is our dream that one day every app in health care will speak FHIR. That’s why we  want to make FHIR even simpler.

We are responsible for maintaining the official open source .NET API for HL7 FHIR, and Vonk, the FHIR server for .NET. We created the leading profile authoring tool Forge and are the driving force behind the FHIR platform

We spread the word by offering FHIR consultancy, by giving FHIR training courses and by organizing the yearly FHIR DevDays Amsterdam and FHIR DevDays USA.

Firely was formerly known as Furore Health Informatics. We decided that our focus on FHIR deserved a name and company of its own: Firely. Which, by the way, is a lot easier to pronounce than Furore.
