New Zealand’s first ‘official’ HL7® FHIR® Connectathon will be an interactive event in which participants can test their FHIR implementations, parts of the specification itself, or simply learn more about the most important new standard in healthcare information interoperability. The hands-on nature of the event encourages attendees to pass data, via APIs, between client applications and FHIR servers, plus utilise cloud-based testing services.


International News…Dr David Hay receives HL7® International Fellowship

HL7 New Zealand is pleased to announce that our Chair Emeritus, Dr David Hay, has been elected as a Fellow of HL7® International.  David is the first New Zealander to receive this honour which recognises his outstanding commitment and sustained contribution to HL7 International over a fifteen-year period, most recently as a Co-Chair of the HL7® FHIR® Management Group and creator of the popular ClinFHIR Tool. 


David was inducted into the HL7 Fellows Programme at last week’s Working Group Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland, USA where the major focus was on preparations for the upcoming Release 4 of FHIR, the first to contain normative content. Further details of this highly-significant work can be found in FHIR Product Director, Grahame Grieve’s meeting report at HERE.

HL7 New Zealand acknowledges the supporters of the 2018 “Developers on FHIR” Challenge 


An enthusiastic group got together in four teams at the University of Auckland this weekend to work on what you can do with FHIR to develop an interoperable adverse events reporting solution!  The goal was to use HL7 FHIR to create solutions for the improved collection, analysis and reporting of adverse event data.
 
The group was also treated to a FHIR masterclass from Dr David Hay, one of the founding developers of FHIR and an international expert on it.  After much deliberation from our judges the winners were (in ranked order).
