If you’re in the health data world, you’ve surely heard of FHIR. If you work in that world but you’re not a hands-on data wrangler, you might have heard of it but not really have a clue what it means in the real world.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a way to learn about it? There is. Register here.
The program is not for everyone, and it’s not free; it’s focused on non-IT employees, and reasonably priced for a professional program: $315 for members of HL7 (the group that created & manages FHIR), $250 for student members, and $475 for non-members.
Upon Completion of this Tutorial, Participants Will Be Able To:
• Understand how FHIR can benefit their organizations and to describe those advantages to others
• Know where to go to get more information
• None, though an understanding of healthcare IT will be beneficial
Why this post?
I’m a fervent evangelist / advocate for FHIR; it’s the first thing I’ve ever seen in the health data world that’s truly focused on getting data to the point where it’s needed. If you work in an organization that manages health data, I encourage you to join me in the audience.
(Of course I’m also encouraging HL7 to offer similar informational programs for patient audiences!)
