Abstract: Beginning in 2010 HL7 created Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) as a next generation standard to address clinical data interoperability. Clinicians on FHIR evolved in 2014 as an event held at each HL7 Working Group Meeting (3 times yearly) to educate clinicians about HL7 FHIR and provide feedback to the HL7 FHIR team regarding the clinical viability and usability of the FHIR standard. This AMIA pre-symposium will bring the Clinicians on FHIR activity to a broader clinical audience, specifically the nursing audience, attending the AMIA Fall Symposium. The workshop is designed to educate attendees about HL7 FHIR and tools available to access, review, and provide feedback to the HL7 FHIR team regarding the evolving HL7 FHIR standard. It is also intended to make the audience aware of the potential of FHIR for innovation in their organizations. The faculty will provide lectures describing HL7 FHIR history, background, and fundamental principles. Examples of applications using the SMART on FHIR platform will also be discussed. After this initial overview of FHIR, the attendees will break into small groups of 6-10 where they will be guided through using online tools to examine HL7 FHIR Resources (the basic building blocks of FHIR) and build FHIR Profiles (implementation guides for specific use cases) for care plan and care coordination use cases.
Learning Objective 1: At the conclusion of this pre-symposium workshop the learner will be able to describe the history and purpose of HL7 FHIR development
Learning Objective 2: At the conclusion of this pre-symposium workshop the learner will be able to explain fundamental principles of HL7 FHIR
Learning Objective 3: At the conclusion of this pre-symposium workshop the learner will be able to apply HL7 FHIR to Care Plan and Care Coordination examples
Learning Objective 4: At the conclusion of this pre-symposium workshop the learner will be able to examine the user of HL7 FHIR in clinical applications available for clinical implementation.
