One minute overview

SMART (Substitutable Medical Apps, Reusable Technologies) is one of four Strategic Health IT Advanced Research Projects (SHARP) funded by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology.  SMART was conceived to address the real-world need for responsiveness and innovation in health information technology by empowering existing electronic medical records (EMRs) and personally controlled health records (PCHRs) to accept substitutable apps. There has already been some work done to have OpenMRS work as a container for SMART Apps by implementing a javascript API that SMART apps expect and providing data back to SMART apps using RDF.
