This is the agenda of the AID HL7 User Group, which will meet during the WGM in San Antonio January 19-24, 2014.

Monday Q3

  1. Administrative agenda items
    • Approval of the minutes of the Amsterdam out-of-cycle meeting
    • Approval of the scheduled AID out-of-cycle meetings
      • MOTION to approve of the organization of the following three out of cycle meetings: one to be held in May in Canada; another to be held in the Netherlands in June (likely to be held on June 3rd); and one to be held in Amsterdam on November 27th.
    • Review of the agenda for the week
    • Discussion whether or not to organize one full days worth of 'users sharing implementation experiences' after each and every HL7 connectathon (currently: FHIR connectathons)
  2. FHIR-enabling existing applications (Robert Worden, Open Mapping Software, UK)
    • Most existing FHIR servers are Greenfields implementations – with a new database, new code, etc. But as FHIR takes off, there will be a big demand to FHIR-enable existing applications. Probably most FHIR servers will be of this form?
    • There is now an Open Source Toolkit to do this – to build a FHIR server on any healthcare application which has a relational database. It is being used to FHIR-enable the PAS at a London NHS Hospital. The good news is – you don’t need to write new code to do it (at least for a read-only server). It is done by mapping the application database onto FHIR logical models for resources, and so can be very quick to do. (FHIR searches generate SQL retrievals; you don’t need to code them)
    • Open Mapping Software is an open source toolkit that can also be used to FHIR-enable existing applications. For two small demo servers built in this way, and for links to the tools, instructions, etc., see http://worden.globalgold.co.uk:8080/FHIR_a/hosted_demo.html.
    • Robert will cover the mapping approach between legacy databases and FHIR, and he'll discuss using a FHIR search on multiple servers at once.
