Force standardisation of the *interfaces* between systems - that does make sense.

HL7 made good inroads despite being a bit of a ball-ache to work with. Speaking as a developer I'd prefer it if FHIR got more traction. Helluva lot easier to work with especially if (as we are) you're just a consumer of data.

RESTful is way easier than getting involved in passing ASCII messages around.
