Clinicians on FHIR: The Connectathon

24th May @ 09:30 - 16:30 BST

Register for Clinicians on FHIR

We’re delighted to be bringing back a day of learning focusing on Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR)*

Following the popularity of our Clinicians on FHIR event last November, we are again joining forces with Orion Health to host the next step in the series – a Clinical Connectathon! The event will aim to promote an understanding of FHIR among clinicians, equipping them to access and share clinical information at the point of care.

The event will be split into two sessions although you are welcome to stay for the full day:

Beginners – 9:30 am – 12:30 pm – for clinicians new to FHIR or wanting to refresh their skills
Experts – 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm – 
for those more familiar with FHIR, we will be building FHIR clinical models using ClinFHIR, for example, to represent a patient’s Problem List.

Sessions will be led Dr. David Hay, FHIR Evangelist and Orion Health Product Strategist, and Dr. Amir Mehrkar, Clinical Co-Chair of INTEROPen and NHS Digital Clinical Lead for Interoperability.

The agenda is designed to lead clinicians through a learning experience to put FHIR theory into practice with exercise sessions and demonstrations, with a focus on specific applications of FHIR profiles, such as Problem Lists. 

The day will build upon the content shared at the www.interopsummit.com; we strongly recommend attendees revisit the summit day 1 videos here, including David Hay’s “Why you WANT to be on FHIR” in preparation for this event.

This event is FREE to attend – ticket charges will be refunded on attendance. Lunch and refreshments will be available, courtesy of Orion Health. Full agenda and venue to follow shortly.

We hope to see you there (don’t forget your laptops!)


*The INTEROPen community is working alongside NHS Digital and NHS England to create and implement the use of a national set of FHIR profiles, referred to as CareConnect, for the communication of health and care information across NHS services.
