Supporting Tool and Information

  • Tool
- Participants registered for the Clinician-on-FHIR event are strongly recommended to familiarise themselves with the clinFHIR tool

- Logon to the clinFHIR site:
- []
- Connect to the FHIR servers by selecting the appropriate Data Server (e.g. Public HAPI DSTU3), Conformance Server and Terminology Server

Details about this project are available at the Clinicial-on-FHIR planning notes wiki page:

  • What's new for the January 2017 Technical Connectathon?
- There will be a small team of clinicians working alongside the FHIR developers to test how well the clinical workflow may work alongside the technical workflow
- The CarePlan track has been selected for this new joint initiative
- Care Plan test data created by the Care Plan team will be used in this track
- Lessons learnt from the technical connectathon will be used as inputs into the Clinician-on-FHIR CarePlan track in the Friday event
