FHIR Foundational Webinars in May, June, and July

Information on a series of foundational FHIR webinars, hosted by Digital Square.

Digital Square at PATH recently held an introductory FHIR® webinar and you can find the materials from the webinar, including the recording and the slides, here , on our wiki.

To accompany this webinar, we are also hosting monthly FHIR-side chats starting on May 14 at @ 9 am ET/ 3 pm SAST/9 am SGT. For these chats, please register here .

This webinar was the first in a series of webinars dedicated to FHIR ® . We hope you will be able to join us for upcoming webinars in this series, which include:

FHIR® Profiling & Documentation

May 26, 2021 | 8-10 am ET/ 2-4 pm SAST/ 9-10 pm SGT Register here

In this webinar we’ll explore the basics for creating and documenting a FHIR ® specification for a project, a country, or an individual application. We’ll see how the FHIR ® specification can be extended and constrained to support specific needs. After identifying what is contained in a FHIR ® specification, we’ll see how such specifications are documented, and how this is done in a good way to accelerate delivery through validation, testing, and automation. We’ll remember some of the basic FHIR ® features around localization and multi-language which become more important when implementing FHIR ® profiles.

FHIR® and Terminology

June 30, 2021 | 8-10 am ET/ 2-4 pm SAST/ 9-10 pm SGT Register here

This session will introduce the FHIR ® support for terminologies: Standard (global) terminologies like SNOMED CT, LOINC, or local terminologies (for example national codes) vs project-specific terminologies. We’ll look at the FHIR ® resources for terminologies, how they are used in the other FHIR ® resources, and how to define new terminology resources, as well as how to localize the value sets. We’ll also take a quick look at the basic FHIR ® terminology operations and provide some pointers to additional resources and terminology servers.

FHIR® Implementation Guide

July 28, 2021 | 8-10 am ET/ 2-4 pm SAST/ 9-10 pm SGT Register here

The culmination of this foundational series will be a practical workshop-like session, with an example for anyone that wishes to create their first FHIR ® specification publication. We will use the open-source tools (we will provide installation instructions beforehand) and we’ll guide you through the creation of a publication of an Implementation Guide in the most fundamental aspects: Setting up a (shared) repository, adding FHIR ® conformance resources (e.g. profiles, extensions, value sets), importing dependencies from other specifications, adding narrative text and diagrams, and using a shorthand language to accelerate the work. At the end, you will be able to find the published content on your machine, ready for sharing - or you can use the community continuous delivery tools to share the result online directly from your repository.

Thank you,
