Summary of course content: This training course offers a 1 or 2 day discussion of advanced FHIR topics that are related to the implementation of FHIR. The content of this workshop is largely determined by its attendees:

  • Implementation issues encountered by the attendees (for examples, see below). The issues are identified both by
    1. hosting a conference call with all attendees prior to the actual workshop, and
    2. issues identified during the workshop.
  • The trainers are experienced implementers, and will bring some optional material (with hands on exercises) with them to cover known implementation aspects which are either not covered by the standard itself, or which are hard to implement. This material will be used when they fit with an issues raised by the attendees. The issues should preferrably be identified well ahead of the actual training course to allow for preparation by the trainer(s); ad hoc questions may require additional research by the trainer(s).
The hands-on nature allows the attendee to get an in depth understanding of the material covered. Please note that development platform specific issues will only be covered when this training course is presented as an in-company training.

Who Should Attend: This training course is aimed at those that already have experience with the implementation of the HL7 FHIR standard.

Goals of the training course: Upon completion of this training course, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand some of the trickier/advanced parts of FHIR
  • Get hands-on experience with various advanced aspects of FHIR
  • Advance their own project by having a deeper understanding of their own implementation issues
  • Apply best practices related to their own implementation issues

Prerequisites: The attendees are assumed to be familiar with:

  • The core components of the FHIR standard
  • Software implementation of those core components
