The FHIR standards development process uses a philosophy of constant implementation to make sure that the standard is implementable in the real world. A key element of realizing this mindset is a FHIR Connectathon at each HL7 Working Group Meeting. The event is typically held on the Saturday and Sunday prior to the meeting and allows participants to test or develop software in an informal way. Test FHIR servers are available and some participants bring other servers along depending on the actors they are fulfilling.

The principles associated with connectathons can be found here.

Test servers are available (FHIR Test Servers ), but some participants may bring other servers along depending on the actors they are fulfilling.

Each track has a coordinating Track Lead. Please review Track Lead responsibilities.
