This is the agenda of the AID meeting to be held in Amsterdam on November 27th, 2014; one day after the FHIR Developer Days (inclusive of the FHIR connectathon) held at the same location.

The event aims to provide a platform for the exchange of architectural concepts and implementation experiences of both FHIR servers as well as clients. The attendees are assumed to be familiar with FHIR, and to have a background as a software developer and/or software architect.

  1. Administrative agenda items
    • Approval of the minutes of the Chicago WGM held in September 2014, available at AID 201409 Agenda.
    • Approval of the new DMP
  2. Validation of FHIR Resources (Ewout Kramer/Martijn Harthoorn, Furore, NL)
    • Validation of FHIR Resources using the Profiles requires many moving pieces: Access to the base definitions of the core Resource, retrieval of external valuesets and other profiles. You have to be able to execute invariants formulated in XPath and produce a sensible output so the users knows where validation failed. We will discuss how we implemented this in the C# reference implementation.
  3. The Dutch National e-Mental Health Exchange (“Koppeltaal”) is on FHIR! (Theo Stolker, NL)
    • There are clear benefits of e-Health treatment in Mental Health. Each Mental Health Clinic has started initiatives to enable eHealth, causing a lot of duplicated efforts. Due to the absence of good standards, a lot of money is spent on integrating the various portals with e-Health Games and Interventions. Koppeltaal is an initiative that proposes an exchange standard based on HL7 FHIR Messages to address this integration issue. As we speak, we are implementing a central hub (“Koppelbox”) that allows portals and e-Health interventions to cooperate in the delivery of e-Mental Health to a wider patient audience.
  4. Discussion: Persisting FHIR Resources (max 40 minutes)
    • One of the issues that FHIR itself is silent on is Persisting FHIR Resources. This depends on the context and purpose of use, but one can probably come up with some general guidelines with regards to best practices related to the persistance of resources. The aim of this free flowing discussion is to create the 'backbone' of a future whitepaper that documents the best practices around persistence.
  5. Mapping of HL7 v2 ORM/ORU message to FHIR (Georg Mueller, IT)
    • Details to follow
  6. Discussion: Recent FHIR updates (Grahame, Lloyd, Ewout)
    • Some of the recent changes to FHIR have a direct impact on the implementation thereof. The FHIR Chiefs would like to discuss some of these changes with the FHIR implementers, e.g.
      • the revised wire format for extensions
  7. Other presentations by FHIR implementers
  8. Formation of the FHIR "community"
    • how do we structure the group that exists outside the HL7 community
  9. Adjournement
