The following are the tracks for the Connectathon. Each item links to the original proposal, with the coordinators name and email on the linked page. View the link for details.

Connectathon Organization

The connectathon will be held over 2 days - Saturday Sept 29 9AM - 10PM and Sunday Sept 30 9AM - 5PM, prior to the HL7 Working Group Meeting.

Saturday is an extended day (9AM - 10PM), and is intended for participants to test and develop software in an informal way. Test servers are available (FHIR Test Servers ), but some participants may bring other servers along depending on the actors they are fulfilling. Sunday is also a full day. The actual programme is still being confirmed, but will likely involve concurrent break-out sessions for demonstrations and discussions of specific topics.

Each stream has a coordinator. The nominated coordinator's responsibilities:

  • In the lead up to the connectathon: track participants, respond to queries about scenarios, connect participants to each other
  • During the connectathon act as a test mediator / progress tracker
  • track emergent issues that should be fed back to the committees

Connectathon Planning Team


If you or your company are interested in participating in the connectathon, please do the following.

Space at the venue is limited, so please register as soon as possible. Preference will be given to those who are participating in the technical event. Observers are welcome if space permits.

For any queries, either contact Sandy Vance at sandra.vance@aegis.net, a member of the planning team, or post your question in the FHIR list server

Tracking application

The tracking tool ConMan (stands for Connectathon Manager) is used by some tracks to record testing outcomes. Check with the tracks for details.

It is helpful to register your name even if your track is not using the tool as it has contact details of the participants. (When you load the page, click the 'Register new person' to add your details).

Note that you must still enroll at the event, as described above

Test servers

These are the STU3 servers we are aware of:

FHIR Tutorials

  • There are 12 FHIR tutorials scheduled through-out the week
  • (Tues. AM) Introduction to HL7 FHIR
  • (Tues. AM) Designing and Architecting HL7 FHIR Solutions
  • (Tues. PM) Introduction to HL7 FHIR for Software Developers
  • (Tues. PM) HL7 FHIR for Clinicians and Decision Makers
  • (Tues. PM) HL7 FHIR Profiling
  • (Wed. AM) HAPI on FHIR
  • (Wed. AM) Clinical Documents on HL7 FHIR
  • (Wed. PM) Understanding and Using Terminology in HL7 FHIR
  • (Wed. PM) Clinical Genomics Using HL7 FHIR
  • (Thur. AM) HL7 FHIR for Clinical and Administrative Workflows
  • (Thur. PM) Driving Health Information Exchange Using XDS with CDA and FHIR
  • (All day - Wed. & Thurs.) FHIR Experience

Detailed descriptions are available in the Event Brochure

FHIR Proficiency Exam

  • The FHIR proficiency test allows test takers to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the specification. This is a basic proficiency test, not a professional credentialing test. It will be multiple choice, multi-select, and true/false and based on the STU3 specification and not on field knowledge. Those who pass the test will receive the FHIR Proficiency Certificate, a Certificate of Knowledge.

Work Group Meetings

HL7 WGMs are where a lot of the development work on FHIR happens. Numerous work groups will be considering FHIR change proposals, working on FHIR profiles and resources, and debating other aspects of FHIR implementation. There will also be meetings of the FHIR Governance Board and FHIR Management Group discussing policies relating to FHIR. There are often ad-hoc meetings at breakfast, lunch and after-hours to discuss items of interest such as tooling, new domains, particular technical issues, etc.

You can take a look at the Event Brochure to get a sense of the breadth of discussions that will be taking place.

Participating in the WGM is a good way to get a sense of the people involved in building the spec, to form relationships, to get more deeply involved in the FHIR community and to influence how the standard evolves.
