One Day Seminar – 4 June 2014, University of Auckland Tamaki Campus
Many of you will be aware that there is a new interoperability standard emerging from HL7 called Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources - or FHIR. FHIR grew out of a realization by HL7 that while effective, many of the current standards are difficult (and expensive) to implement, particularly when multiple parties are involved. FHIR is unashamedly aimed at the implementer. Based on standard internet technologies rather than health-specific ones yet grounded in all the design work that has gone into current standards, FHIR is generating tremendous interest worldwide - even though it is only 2 years old.
What is of particular interest to New Zealand, is that it fits extremely well with many of the strategies that the National IT Health Board has developed: The use of regional repositories, a Record Locator Service to find information, portals (patient and provider to view/update it) and so forth. And it has also been designed specifically to support mobile devices - probably the biggest trend in healthcare IT today.
This one day seminar is aimed both at the Decision Maker and the Implementer and is intended to give people the high level information they need about this important new standard which is being implemented worldwide right now and will be hosted by our own Dr. David Hay (who is a co-chair of the HL7 FHIR Management Group) and assisted by local experts:
Alastair Kenworthy - Chief Sector Architect NHITB, Peter Jordan - Solutions Architect, Patients first and Dr Koray Atalag - Researcher, NIHI
The day will cover the following topics and conclude with networking drinks at approx. 4pm:
As well as presentations, there will be an opportunity in the afternoon to interact with real FHIR servers so bring your laptop! And this applies to Managers as well as implementers…
Register early to make sure you don’t miss out on this important event. We look forward to seeing you there!
