Last month at HIMSS15 in Chicago we were extremely encouraged by the attendee turnout at our booth to learn about HL7 FHIR from our CTO, Dave Shaver, who also serves as Co-Chair of the HL7 FHIR Governance Board.
To be honest, when planning the sessions during pre-conference meetings, we were a little nervous that we were too early in FHIR’s development cycle to draw much interest from more than a handful of HL7 experts. The large turnout at each session showed us in no uncertain terms that we were absolutely wrong!
During each of the five whiteboard sessions approximately 40 people crowded around the whiteboard where Dave presented the benefits of FHIR and how it will change how health data is exchanged in the near future.
Due to the great turnout, Dave will offer his FHIR expertise during two free, 30-minute webinars:
- 10:30-11:00 a.m. CT, Tues., May 19
- 2:00-2:30 pm. CT, Wed., May 20
To help enhance your FHIR education, you may be interested in downloading a copy of our HL7 FHIR primer in advance of the webinar.
You can also view various articles about FHIR on HL7standards.com.
We hope to continue the discussion with you around this exciting topic that is poised to upend how health data is exchanged in the U.S.
