FHIR connectathon highlights HL7 Australia meeting

Developers looking to get a better understanding of the use of the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standard in mobile app development and those wanting to hear from the FHIR starter himself are being invited to a three-day HL7 Australia working group meeting in Sydney next month.

The working group meeting is aimed at clinicians, software vendors, medical organisations and government decision makers and will feature a 1.5 day introduction to FHIR connectathon, and will be preceded by a National Clinical Terminology Service (NCTS) connectathon, organised by HL7, NEHTA and the CSIRO.

The founder of FHIR, Grahame Grieve, will hold a session for health executives on what FHIR is and how it relates to HL7 version 2 and CDA, and terminology specialist Heather Grain will provide an update on what is happening in the international terminology sector and its effect on Australian eHealth.

There will also be sessions on HL7 standards and a two-day vendor expo.

The NCTS connectathon will be held on July 5 and 6, with the WGM running from July 6 to 8. See the HL7 Australia website for more information.
