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. 
In this Fast-Track Course we will:

● Establish why HL7 FHIR is so different ...
● Explore the underlying technologies: REST, XML, JSON, OAuth etc.
● Learn how to read the FHIR specification
● Create HL7 FHIR Transactions
