(This page is under construction and contains information that is still subject to update and correction.) This page describes the first FHIR Virtual Connectathon that will be held on Wednesday July 13 (11am - 5pm++ EST) hosted by Cambia.
The meeting will be held on the hosted Skype meeting call.
- Please note virtual pizza will be provided.
The following are the themes for the Connectathon. Each item links to the original proposal, with the coordinators name and email on the linked page. More details on each track appear in this document.
To assist with management on the day, participants are *strongly encouraged* to add their name to the Tracking Document.
The connectathon will be held over 1 day. It is intended for participants to test and develop software in an informal way. Test servers will be available (actually, they are already - FHIR Test Servers ), but some participants may bring other servers along depending on the actors they are fulfilling. Sunday is the morning only, and has 2 parts:
- the formal testing part
- a mini-showcase where participants can demonstrate their work to the others
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 track scenarios
This section lists the scenarios that are proposed for each track.
Note that this track - as with all tracks - will use the 'DSTU2' version of FHIR as described here. If you've been to a connectathon before and done this track, then you may need to change your code, as there have been many important changes to the specification.
