The 2014 September Clinician Connectathon provided a large amount of valuable feedbacks that result in significant improvements to the follow-up event in November 2014 in Melbourne, Australia. Participants at both events agreed that it is a valuable event that:

  • Effectively improves communications and understandings between the FHIR technical and clinician communities
  • Is a source of extremely useful inputs for improvement of FHIR resources and tooling

It is planned that the Clinician Connectathon will be a continuing event at each HL7 International WGM until such a time that it is determined that the event is no longer necessary


The FHIR clinician connectathon target participants are those with clinical backgrounds:

  • Physicians (including specialist physicians, pathologist, radiologist ...)
  • Dentists
  • Nurses (including nurse specialist, nurse practitioner ...)
  • Pharmacists
  • Dietitians
  • Physiotherapist
  • Other allied health practitioners, e.g. occupational therapist


NOTE - this event has been renamed to Clinicians on FHIR events post May 2015 Paris WGM.
