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:

'Fundamentals of eHealth' Free Information Session

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:

Evaluating and Implementing HL7 FHIR© - Fast-Track Course

HL7 FHIRFHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) - HL7 International's next-generation interoperability standard - represents a paradigm shift in connecting computer systems in healthcare.  In a refreshing break from current 'insider technology and tooling' only found in healthcare, FHIR harnesses ubiquitous ICT technologies to make eHealth systems interoperability amazingly simple!  XML, HTTP, REST, JSON, openID, OAuth2 and other popular methods found in every-day systems such as Web Browsers, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. form the basis of this exciting new approach.

In little over two years, HL7 FHIR has gone from concept to a published working standard with implementations by over 70 organisations in 20 countries.  In this Fast-Track Course you will be introduced to the FHIR specifications, learn how to evaluate FHIR for your organisation and experience hands-on how simple implementing FHIR is.
