What: Interoperability Symposium & Connectathon
When: Wednesday 20 March 2024, 9:00 am – Friday 22 March 2024, 4:30 pm
Where: Level 4/45 Queen Street, Auckland CBD, Auckland 1010, New Zealand

Registrations are open for a Connectathon being run by Te Whatu Ora, HISO and HL7NZ in Auckland from 20-22 March 2024. The Connectathon will run in parallel to a companion event in Australia. 
The March event follows the success of the “IPS-athon”, focused on the International Patient Summary (IPS), at Digital Health Week 2023. The Connectathon will continue work on adapting the IPS to our unique cultural and health system settings to build a New Zealand Patient Summary (NZPS). The NZPS will enable consumers to tell their health stories in digital form and vastly improve continuity of care.

The event will be held at Cliftons, Queen St, Auckland, and will take place in two parts.

  • Symposium, 20 March: Digital health leaders in New Zealand, Australia, and the Pacific will share the importance of standardisation with FHIR®, SNOMED, and IPS to the digital health ecosystem we’re building. Our experts will explore models for increased collaboration across the region and focus on improved health equity through digital transformation.
  • Connectathon, 21-22 March: Participants will choose from several topic-focused tracks – either to further develop and prove the NZPS FHIR specification, develop product integrations with our marketplace APIs, or develop interactive applications with FHIR questionnaires. There is also an education track that will explore the FHIR NZ base

This event is for health software developers, service designers, clinicians, and anyone interested in the digitalisation of our health system. All skill levels and job roles are welcome at this hands-on, participatory, and technical digital health event. Expert track leads will help guide each participant to the tracks that match their professional interests and skill level.

Attendees can choose from one of the following options:

  • Day one (Symposium only)
  • Days two and three (Connectathon only)
  • Days one to three (Symposium & Connectathon)

Registration is free. Future Connectathons are also being planned, and details will be available over the coming months.
