With the recent technological developments new possibilities arise for the use of wearables and medical monitoring devices by patients and their respective integration into the digital health ecosystem. FHIRbox is a distributed system under development by the authors for integrating data from various diagnosis devices, complying with FHIR - the latest HL7 standard for exchanging clinical information. The innovative aspects of FHIRbox constitute a reference to drive a paradigm shift in terms of access to health information; as it is a solution that places the patient as the true owner of his clinical data. In this work the authors present the project requirements and the system architecture.
