Fast Health Interoperability Resources (FHIR) and HL7 Terminology.

If you want to get up to speed with FHIR, mark June 17 in your diary.  Grahame Grieve, the father of FHIR, has generously donated a day to tell the HL7 Australia Community about this world-wide phenomenon that he kicked off a few short years ago in Melbourne. He will be ably assisted by David Hay, Chair of HL7 New Zealand, member of the FHIR International Governance Board and leader of the FHIR implementation efforts in New Zealand.

FHIR represents a fundamental change in Health IT and a huge opportunity for Australia. In order to make this day as accessible as possible, there will be no charge for current members but it will be “no frills”! Generous support by CSIRO (venue) and the speakers has made this possible.

As part of this day, HL7 Australia will be initiating the process to localise FHIR requirements (profiles) for Australia.

At the end of the day there will be a brief update about other HL7 Standards initiatives from attendees at the recent  HL7 International meeting.

Day 2 - June 18 will have two streams – a FHIR Connectathon for developers and implementers with Grahame Grieve as presiding oracle.

In parallel there will be a tutorial on Terminology by Heather Grain, Co-Chair of the HL7 International Vocabulary Working Group, Chair HL7 Terminology Authority, Convenor ISO TC215 WG3 (Terminology). The focus will be on implementation of terminology across the full range of HL7 standards including current tooling and near-future initiatives.
