Connectathon No. 2 - National Clinical Terminology Service

NEHTA in collaboration with CSIRO and HL7 is hosting its second technical Connectathon on the National Clinical Terminology Service (NCTS) including its use of HL7's Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®). This Connectathon is being held over 2 days on 18 and 19 May 2016, in Melbourne.

The Connectathon is a technically focussed event, for developers, by developers.

  • The first half of day 1 will provide an overview of the NCTS specifications, use of terminology, education sessions and resources available to participants. The afternoon will be the technical session, with participants having the option of participating in various tracks.
  • Day 2 is further technical hands-on work within the selected tracks and will involve writing and testing code. In the afternoon, there will be an opportunity to demonstrate what you have built over the two days and provide input to the NCTS team to further develop and enhance the service.

Due to the high levels of interest and limited spaces available, please register your attendance for the Connectathon via later than COB Friday, 29 April, 2016.

An official invitation will then be forwarded to the confirmed attendees with specific details about the location, structure of the event and access to a secured portal containing relevant materials.

For those unable to attend this event, additional Connectathons will be held in the future. NEHTA will also be holding more general webinars (non-technical) and updates on the NCTS over the next several months. You can register interest for these via
