HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) Connectathons feature hands-on FHIR development and testing. Implementers and developers come together to hold technical discussions that advance the FHIR specification, develop FHIR-based solutions, and exchange data with other FHIR interfaces. Connectathons are a great opportunity to work directly with FHIR developers and senior members of the FHIR standards development team.

Please note: The purpose of a Connectathon event is to engage in testing of the FHIR specification and implementations. While the FHIR Community thrives on perpetual learning, this environment demands preparation to participate in technical discussions, code review, and testing of a reference implementation or your own FHIR-based system. It is expected that by registering for this event you have adequately prepared by reviewing the FHIR specification and any artifacts specified on the track page, attended all participant information sessions, and established a connection with your track through the Track Kick Off or other work sessions.
