Borrowed from www.healthintersections.com.au:
“You don’t fix what isn’t broken, so initially, no one will replace v2 messaging interfaces with FHIR interfaces. Instead, institutions will use FHIR on their perimeter, for integration between enterprises.” –Grahame Grieve
Be sure and read the post from HL7 FHIR architect Grahame Grieve. While he does say that v2 is going nowhere any time soon, he does predict that, as FHIR use becomes more widespread, hospitals will begin to use it to replace their traditional v2 messages.
