NEW: Free eHealth Fundamentals Information Sessions
What is 'e-Health'? What are the differences between eHealth, Health Informatics and Health Information Management? Have you asked yourself: "I have done banking/ finance systems integration for many years, but working in health sounds very interesting. What do I need to learn?" "I am a medical scientist with an background in s/w engineering. I am working on an EHR, but the external systems keep sending me wrong HL7 messages. What can I do?" What are the challenges and opportunities of these exciting and ever-expanding professions? HL7, once the domain of gurus, has gone 'Open Source', the HL7 FHIR community is growing like wild-fire and attracting professionals from all areas. Which jobs and careers are growing in eHealth?
Ask, discuss and get answers on these and similar questions:
NEW: HL7 FHIR
HL7 FHIR is taking the healthcare interoperability world by storm and has 'blazed' to a published draft standard with implementations all over the globe in less than three years. Why is a group of the large US EHR vendors fast-tracking FHIR? Why was the most recent FHIR Implementation Day (aka 'Connectathon') in Brisbane sold out? What's going to happen with V2 and CDA?
Get answers to these questions, evaluate FHIR for your organisation and try out how simple implementing FHIR is:
HL7 V2.x Implementation and Certification
The correct and compliant implementation of HL7 Version 2 interfaces is vital to the successful interconnection of healthcare computer systems. Original or Enhanced ACKs - which is better? Are you aware that a patient living in 'Rodgers & Hammerstein Boulevard' can crash your interface? Do you know why? Do your HL7 message queues go down due to 'zombie messages'? Are your users complaining about missing or wrong data? You know you are being sent data in the wrong message fields - but how do you prove it?
Learn how to confidently specify and implement HL7 V2.x Messages - and get the official certification to prove it!
HL7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA)
HL7's standard for the structure and semantics of electronically exchanged 'clinical documents' - CDA - has gained much interest in the last five years. Do you know why? Need to know about CDA's role in the PCEHR? What are the alternatives to CDA?
Get quickly up-to-speed with CDA in our highly-focussed Introductory Course:
HL7 Diagnostic/ATD/Medications/Scheduling/Master Data Messaging
Patient Administration, Pathology, Medication Management, Scheduling and Master Files are most common uses of HL7 V2 Messaging. Do you know which of the 63 HL7 V2 ADT messages is the right one to use when moving a patient from recovery to a ward? If you are deploying a LIS from the US, which important mappings must you configure?
Our Hands-On Implementation Workshops focus on the important issues and enable you to build compliant and reliable interfaces:
Electronic Health Records, Big Data, the Semantic Web and Enterprise eHealth
Electronic Health Records ("EHRs") are being deployed with increasing coverage and interconnectivity - and are the enablers for deep data analysis supported by the healthcare semantic web and require new enterprise-wide eHealth information technologies. So which are the world-wide most successful EHRs and why have the been widely adopted? Do you know the reasons for the slow uptake of the Australian PCEHR? How are 'Big Data' analytics being used to improve patient safety and reduce healthcare delivery costs? How can Semantic Web technologies improve eHealth information management? Do you know the eHealth Information and Communications Technologies ('Health ICT') that healthcare organisations and corporates are deploying?
The following Seminars and Workshops enable you answer these questions with confidence:
eHealth Systems and Healthcare Supply Chain Management
To the survive that rapid growth in the eHealth market place makes it essential to learn and develop skills for successful planning, implementation and management of e-Health resources. At the same time, inefficient data management in your purchasing may impact patient safety and increase costs. Do you know the critical differences between managing traditional services / procurements and the new approaches required in eHealth? Does purchasing always appear to be 'ad-hoc', disorganised and battling with daily crises? Are you frustrated with redundant purchasing tasks and inefficient work practices? Do your clients always appear to unhappy with cost and quality of your supplies?
Learn how to automate and streamline your eHealth systems and services so they deliver the right products, at the right price, to the right person, in the right location at the right time:
Architecture Frameworks in Healthcare
The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) is an exciting new "must know" methodology that applies best practices to effectively analyse, design and implement Health Information Technology solutions. Fighting against 'scope-creep'? Are your users continually 'moving the goal posts'? Do your clients always seem unhappy with your deliverables?
Learn how to ensure that your products and systems do exactly what the users and stakeholders expect:
Implementing Social Media in Healthcare Organisations
Healthcare organisations today must use Social Media - not only to communicate their products and services but because patients demand that they respond. Do you understand the relevance of traditional vs social media communications in healthcare? What are the role, characteristics and function of the main social media channels? Do you know how to integrate social media into your organisation's 'traditional' media? Are you aware of the PR and medico-legal risks of using social media in healthcare?
This Workshop not only answers these questions, but you will create a Social Media Implementation Plan for your organisation!

eHealth & HL7 NewsHL7 Publishes First Domain Analysis Model for Clinical Sequencing
Sunday, 9th April 2017
Health Level Seven® International (HL7®), the global authority for interoperability in healthcare information technology and the home of the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) standard, today announced that it has published the HL7 Domain Analysis Model: Clinical Sequencing, a model which captures precision medicine's use cases to facilitate interoperability of genetic and genomic data. This domain analysis model (DAM) was the basis for the design of FHIR Genomics, the genomics components designed under purview of the HL7 Clinical Genomics Work Group within FHIR Release 3. The DAM has also served as the foundation for underlying use cases selected for the Sync for Genes (www.sync4genes.org) program.
HL7 Announces Value-Based Care Summit Focused on HL7® FHIR®
