Using FHIR for real world problems – recording Allergies & Intolerances

The latest standard from HL7 – Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) – is generating enormous excitement internationally in the Clinical and Health IT communities alike. We have already hosted a number of technically-focussed seminars on FHIR in New Zealand, but this session is also aimed at the clinical user. We will present a background to FHIR profiling in the morning, and then we will have a workshop on a real-world problem in the afternoon – the recording of allergies and intolerances. The clinicians will create FHIR profiles that suit the New Zealand requirements, while the technical folk will work on prototypes that collect and present that information to users.

WHEN: Monday 19 October, full day (as part of the annual HINZ conference and exhibition)

WHERE: Ballroom, Wigram Base

INCLUDES: morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea
