Developers on FHIR Challenge took place on Saturday 17 March 2018

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).
