SMART Health IT is an open, standards based technology platform that enables innovators to create apps that seamlessly and securely run across the healthcare system. Using an electronic health record (EHR) system or data warehouse that supports the SMART standard, patients, doctors, and healthcare practitioners can draw on this library of apps to improve clinical care, research, and public health.

The SMART vision of substitutable healthcare applications holds many benefits for app developers, healthcare providers, patients, healthcare institutions and public health.
- App Developers – Reduce the cost and complexity of integrating with customers’ EHR systems and accelerate app creation with open source tools and resources.
- Healthcare Providers and Patients – Add new capabilities and data to existing systems (for example to visualize risks, trends, and trajectories), and mash up clinical records with information from sensors, devices, and patient reports.
- Healthcare Institutions – Improve return on EHR investment by streamlining internal EHR customization projects and drawing on a library of innovate apps.
- Public Health – Apps can transfer ideas, functionality, and workflow all in one package—a good app, distributed widely, could reshape practice overnight.
