HL7 FHIR Connectathon #17 – Promises to be the biggest so far


HL7® FHIR® Connectathon 17, New Orleans, Jan 27 & 28 – close to, if not more than, 300 attendees will be there this weekend working on 25+ testing tracks – promises to be the biggest so far. And, just like I’ve done for the last three, I will once again be providing a couple of Saturday morning breakout sessions to help those new (and maybe not so new) to the FHIR specification:

FHIR Overview (45-60 min) – 9:30am-10:30amRoyal breakout room – This tutorial provides a brief introduction and overview of the FHIR specification. We will examine the basic concepts of FHIR resources and supported interoperability paradigms. An instructor led demo will illustrate a FHIR-in-action scenario. If you are new to FHIR, this is a great place to start.

FHIR Testing and Touchstone (45-60 min) – 10:30am-11:30pmRoyal breakout room – In this tutorial we will introduce the FHIR Testing Framework, the FHIR TestScript resource and how the Touchstone Testing Platform implements this framework.

Looking forward to participating in my 14th FHIR Connectathon event! Hope to see you there.
