HL7 New Zealand Mid-year Seminar: Fire and Ice

FHIR and SNOMED are the new standards for interoperability that promise to help us create a connected health ecosystem for New Zealanders, who are now starting to use patient portals and personal health apps to manage their health and wellness. FHIR and SNOMED are also essential technologies for new mobile clinical apps at a time when models of care are changing rapidly in the face of escalating medical knowledge, consumer expectations and societal change.  This seminar held on Friday 24th July built on the foundations of last year’s education on FHIR to deliver a new level of understanding and capability to software practitioners and also offered an update on SNOMED awareness and understanding in the health informatics community ahead of the IHTSDO conference and expo to be held in New Zealand in October 2016.  The Board of HL7NZ would like to thank all the presenters and delegates who attended this successful seminar.  Just under 100 people gathered at the Crowne Plaza Hotel  in Auckland for a full day of informative technical and practical sessions on FHIR and SNOMED.
