Connectathon Planning Team

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 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 HL7 Confluence Pages related to specific work groups to get a sense of the breadth of discussions that will be taking place.

Participating in the WGM is a good way to get involved in the FHIR Community, form relationships and influence how the standard evolves.


Proposals due by : July 21, 2020

To enter a track proposal, go to the ellipsis next to the Create button at the top of this page, click show more, and select the Track Proposal Template. Once you name your page, click publish in the bottom right corner. For more information on how to use a template to set up a new page click here.

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.
