The FHIR Experience – An Immersive Hands-On Training Program - September 2018 WGM

This is a two-day, hands-on FHIR training program being offered at the September 2018 WGM on Wednesday October 3rd and Thursday October 4th. It is designed to

  • empower students with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to implement HL7 FHIR applications
  • make informed decisions about FHIR technology, and
  • prepare for the FHIR Proficiency Certification Exam.

Theoretical material is blended with hands-on activities so that students are able to apply what they learn throughout the two-day experience.

The first day is devoted to evaluating and applying the base FHIR standards through hands-on interaction with FHIR servers. Base standards topics include: FHIR Resources, RESTFUL API , transactions, operations, messages, documents, services, batch, bulk transfer, storage, Conformance and Terminology.

The second day focuses on reviewing and utilizing the FHIR implementation guides. Students will gain insight and hands-on experience with the US Core (Argonaut) and Provider Directory Implementation Guides.

The program culminates with a summative review of the two-day training through interactive preparation for the FHIR Proficiency Exam.

The Tutorial will Benefit:

  • Anyone interested in connecting his or her system/app to FHIR- or Argonaut- enabled EHRs or systems or who is implementing FHIR technology.

Upon Completion of This Tutorial, Students Will Be Able To:

  • Explain FHIR fundamental concepts
  • Implement API calls using Postman and FHIR server sandboxes.
  • Describe FHIR Implementation Guides and Profiles
  • Construct simple JavaScript applets that securely query clinical data using FHIR implementation guides.
  • Recall the required competencies and structure of the FHIR Proficiency certification exam
  • Identify gaps in FHIR proficiency by completing practice exam questions


  • Participants in this program should either first take the Introduction to FHIR course or, at a minimum, review HL7 FHIR summaries in the FHIR specifications.
  • Participants are expected to be comfortable with technology and computer use. Prior knowledge of JavaScript and HTML will be useful.
