Connectathon Planning Team
- Grahame Grieve, Health Intersections Pty Ltd
- David Hay, Orion Health
- Sandy Vance, HL7 Connectathon Administrator, AEGIS.net
- 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.
- Tutorials on the FHIR Proficiency Exam can be found in HL7's Education on Demand site: https://www.pathlms.com/hl7.
- The exam can be taken either online or at one of 900 HOST centers of HL7's testing service Kryterion. More details can be found at http://www.hl7.org/implement/certification.cfm?ref=nav.
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.
