2. If you currently do not have an EPR system in place, do you have plants to implement one? (Yes/No) If yes, when?
3. Does your main hospital EPR system have the HL7 FHIR API’s enabled? (Yes/No)
4. If no, do you have plans to enable this at present?
5. What is the specific product name of the EPR product you currently use for your Oncology department (e.g. ARIA, FLATIRON etc.)?
6. Is your Oncology EPR HL7 FHIR enabled? (Yes/No)
7. If no, can it be HL7 FHIR enabled? (Yes/No)
8. If no, why can it not be HL7 FHIR enabled? (e.g. technology is not capable, cost related reasons etc.)

We look forward to hearing from you.
