Level 1, Alan Gilbert Building (Melbourne University Building 104), 161 Barry Street Carlton VIC 3053
HL7 Australia’s third Work Group Meeting (WGM) will be held on 7 and 8 November 2016 at University of Melbourne. Following the format of past WGM, the event will include presentations from key speakers, work group meetings and a FHIR Connectathon.
Expanding on the desire to build a collaborative community, this WGM will include a new element with a ClinFHIR session aimed specifically at clinicians. The importance of supporting engagement between clinicians and developers cannot be refuted and it forms a key point of the Standards Development Initiative.
FHIR Connectathon Monday 7 Nov 9am - 5pm to Tuesday 8 Nov 9am - 12pm
This WGM FHIR Connectathon will have two concurrent streams – Introduction to FHIR and Medications. Both the Patient Administration and Medications Work Groups have identified the need to progress the work undertaken to date in the FHIR community around medications and will use the FHIR Connectathon to address this area. Developers, implementers and clinicians who have an interest in this area are welcome to come and work in this collaborative and supportive environment across the two days.
If you are new to FHIR and not sure where to start, the Introduction to FHIR stream is an excellent place to start, with experience mentors on hand to provide advice, guidance and support.
Who should attend? IT students, developers, vendors, clinicians
ClinFHIR Monday 7 Nov 9am - 12.30pm
A key success point for any health informatics standard, including FHIR, is the understanding of clinical use cases and scenarios. This involves active collaboration between developers with clinicians across a range of disciplines. Internationally, this is an area being supported by HL7 International, and HL7 Australia is following this position on a local level.
The half day ClinFHIR session is ideal for clinicians who are not technically minded but want to be involved in helping developers develop clinically safe and usable systems. It will consist of:
- A short presentation on the importance of clinical engagement in the health informatics space.
- A short presentation with an introduction to FHIR, Clinician-on-FHIR (history and purposes), and clinFHIR
- Hands on clinician-on-FHIR activities using clinFHIR - aiming at introducing and replicating the international clinician-on-FHIR experiences.
Who should attend? Clinicians and other healthcare providers, medical students
Work Group Meetings TBA
The Patient Administration & Medications Work Groups will be conducting face to face meetings throughout the event – times to be announced closer to the day. All HL7 Australia Work Groups are open to participation by members and non-members and details of current work can be found at http://confluence.hl7australia.com
Who should attend? Clinician, healthcare providers, medical & IT students, developers, software vendors, decision makers
