The January 2015 connectathon for clinician is renamed as the Clinician Connectathon. This is the second international event following the Chicago clinician connectathon held during the September 2014 HL7 WGM.
This subtle name change is made to help reduce confusion over who is eligible to participate and to better reflect the intent.

The Participants
This event is open to all clinicians attending the January 2015 HL7 WGM.
Clinicians who are interested will need to register for the clinician connectathon (Friday, 01/23/2015 Event) when signing up for the January 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 clinician connectathon is intended for clinician participants to test and review FHIR resources against clinical requirements defined in the clinical storyboards/scripts.
Non clinician participants interested in FHIR connectathon can join the technical connectathon event. Details of FHIR technical connectathon are available here:

Decision at Thursday 11 December 2014 PCWG-FHIR conference call:

- The January 2015 Clinician Connectathon participation will be limited to clinicians.
- Proposal to admit non-clinician as observers to clinician connectathon will be reviewed leading up to the May 2015 clinician connectathon

Registration/Participation Fee
No additional fee will be charged for clinician participants who registered for the full January 2015 WGM event.
For future clinician connecthaton, decision on registration fee will be reviewed and decided by HL7 HQ. Further information will be available when HL7 HQ has determined the relevant policy decision.
