  • FHIR Profile Tool demo (Furore developer) - reschedule
  • FHIR Education - Sharon
    • Key initiative for providing education; would like to explore a FHIR Academy with technical and non-technical tracks. April, July and October pattern suggested in order to have something on FHIR every month. Member advantage webinar and WGM in May, one in April
    • Format would be 60-90 minutes, flexible structure, say 45 minutes presentation and 15 Q&A or 60 minutes presentation and 30 Q&A. Mini-modules could also be structured.
    • What is the goal of the non-technical track? This was a suggestion to be explored the content for which she would rely upon the FMG.
    • What tools are we using? Webinar or e-learning course or other formats would be entertained. John recommends the e-learning course format for the technical training.
    • She suggests starting with determining who would be assigned the various tracks, describe the topics in the track, and then go forward with developing materials. Technical developers, non-technical decision makers, or even clinical community target audience on profiling could be the tracks.
    • Lloyd suggests a library of recorded webinars as compared to live with Q&A.
    • Josh asks if the live webinar can be seen for free - true. Member only webinars are also available, as skill-building webinars are fee-based. Ambassador webinars for non-technical decision makers and clinicians. Fee-based webinars for technical skills would be a good fit.
    • Lloyd asks when they want a curriculum- target a couple of weeks would be great.
    • Sharon leaves; Paul has joined.
