This is following a series of successful similar events which started as the Clinical Connectathon event in September 2014 WGM at Chicago
The key objectives of this event are to facilitate the engagement of clinicians to provide:

  • a forum for testing of FHIR resources for clinical "fitness-for-purpose"
  • clinical inputs to the design and continuous quality improvement of FHIR resources (mainly clinical resources, but may provide inputs to administrative resources where appropriate
  • advance clinicians expertise in FHIR so that they can support development, testing and implementation of FHIR resources and profiles

The Participants

Clinicians who are interested will need to register for the clinician connectathon (Friday, xx/10/2015 Event) when signing up for the October 2015 WGM.
Registration is required so that HL7 HQ knows how many to expect and organise the required infrastructure and catering.
Some web sessions may be planned before the meeting to prepare participants.

Note - the Clinicians on FHIR event is intended for clinician participants to test and review FHIR resources against clinical requirements defined in the clinical storyboards/scripts.
