Use of FHIR as the API for the NZ EHR (a deeper dive)

Monday 4:00pm - 4:30pm, HiNZ Health (HiNZ Health IT Room)

This session is a follow on to the previous one, and is aimed at the more technical user - developer, implementer and business analyst. We'll spend some time describing and demonstrating how FHIR can be adapted to meet specific requirements (a process called 'profiling'), and the tooling available to assist with this. It will also cover some of the technical aspects of communicating with FHIR servers and describe the tooling and other free resources that are available to help the developer of FHIR and SMART based applications, including some thoughts on the infrastructure that will be required to support this in New Zealand. We'll also think about how we can form a community of users and developers in New Zealand including Clinicians and Consumers with hooks into the international community.
