SMART Enabling VistA Home Page
Project Background and Overview
SMART (Substitutable Medical Apps, Re-usable Technology) is an initiative from Harvard Medical School (http://smartplatforms.org) that provides a unified mechanism for diverse applications to interact with medical record data. SMART Applications (Apps) built against the SMART API can be embedded within any SMART Container. A SMART Container is, most often, an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system used by physicians, but might also be a Personal Health Record (PHR) used by patients, or a data-analytics platform used by researchers. A SMART App is a normal web application, embedded as a frame within the SMART Container's user interface, with access to the SMART API for interacting with health data.
