21-22 June 2012: Healthcare Interoperability Pioneer Ed Hammond & openEHR

21-22 June 2012: Healthcare Interoperability Pioneer Ed Hammond & openEHR

In conjunction with HINZ we will be hosting a seminar on Electronic Health Records and openEHR and we are proud to announce that we have secured Ed Hammond as the keynote speaker for this event. Ed was one of the initial founders of HL7 and remains one of the most important voices in healthcare standards and interoperability. His keynote is bound to be very illuminating!

 The openEHR section of the event will introduce Archetypes a core component of the National Interoperability Reference Architecture, and an increasingly accepted way of representing health information.   We are grateful to Ocean Informatics for providing one of the leading experts in this field Hugh Leslie – to speak to us. In this session Hugh will walk us through the essentials of modelling, and then jump right into practical examples from Australia and other national programs.   Attending these sessions will be very worthwhile as Hugh will demonstrate how to transform Archetypes into HL7 clinical documents (CDAs)

The 21 June seminar is run in conjuction with HINZ and The University of Auckland and will be held at the Aotea Centre, Auckland.  The Cost for HINZ and HL7NZ (financial) members is $150 and non members $250 (includes one year membership to both HINZ and HL7NZ).  You can register for this event here http://www.hinz.org.nz/events/Seminar/2012/6/Leveraging+the+EHR+for+translational+health+care%3A+Exploring+what%27s+under+the+bonnet/47 

The 22 June tutorial on openEHR is run by HL7NZ and will be held at the University of Auckland Tamaki Campus in Glen Innes.  The cost is $150 for HINZ and HL7NZ (financial) members and non members $250 (includes on year membership to both HINZ and HL7NZ).  This one day tutorial will be presented by two internationally acknowledged openEHR experts – Drs. Hugh and Heather Leslie from Ocean Informatics Pty Ltd.  The tutorial will cover the full continuum of the methodologies described in the New Zealand Reference Architecture for Interoperability – from clinical requirements through modelling to the creation of compliant CDAs automatically.  Attendance at this day will suit anyone who has an interest in Clinical Data Modelling, and how the models created can be used to produce real messages that promote semantic interoperability between Clinical Information Systems.
