Where DICOM has adopted a number of RESTful standards (a.k.a. DICOMWeb) to exchange DICOM as well as other imaging data - HL7 has been working on a new RESTful standarda as well: FHIR

FHIR and DICOMWeb are a good match - they may help to bridge the gap between the 'imaging world' and the 'EHR world'. Both FHIR as well as DICOMWeb would be able to fulfill the requirements as specified in the NHS OpenAPI policy document.

See for an excutive overview of FHIR (30 minutes) as well as (FHIR for clinicans).
