FHIR Tutorials

  • There are several FHIR tutorials scheduled through-out the week and a full list can be found by clicking the word "Tutorials" in the upper right corner of the Event Brochure which can be found here.

FHIR Proficiency Exam

  • The FHIR proficiency test allows test takers to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the specification. This is a basic proficiency test, not a professional credentialing test. It will be multiple choice, multi-select, and true/false and based on the STU3 specification and not on field knowledge. Those who pass the test will receive the FHIR Proficiency Certificate, a Certificate of Knowledge.

Work Group Meetings

HL7 WGMs are where a lot of the development work on FHIR happens. Numerous work groups will be considering FHIR change proposals, working on FHIR profiles and resources, and debating other aspects of FHIR implementation. There will also be meetings of the FHIR Governance Board and FHIR Management Group discussing policies relating to FHIR. There are often ad-hoc meetings at breakfast, lunch and after-hours to discuss items of interest such as tooling, new domains, particular technical issues, etc.

You can take a look at the Event Brochure to get a sense of the breadth of discussions that will be taking place.

Participating in the WGM is a good way to get a sense of the people involved in building the spec, to form relationships, to get more deeply involved in the FHIR community and to influence how the standard evolves.

Date of Training Workshops: September 11-13 2019

Yes, please put me on this list.  I am copying in my Da Vinci team to promote me for the workshop – I am a co-lead on several workgroups and would like to be able to at least help in this process. From a scheduling perspective, when do you think it will be held? Linda
