Chronic diseases introduce challenges for the patients to manage the changing requirements of the disease. Patient empowerment activities are a critical component to assist patients in their long-term care journey. In order to be effective, patient empowerment tools need to be well-integrated with the chronic disease management tools used at the clinical sites. This paper explores and analyzes the exploitation of HL7 FHIR to design and implement an interoperable patient empowerment platform that can be seamlessly integrated with external chronic disease management and Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems.
