International FHIR Developer Days takes place this week (November 18-20) in Amsterdam. The event is hosted by Furore, a Dutch health IT company that has been active in FHIR development. Furore maintains an open-source FHIR test server called "Spark."
The three FHIR project leads ("FHIR Chiefs," as we like to call them), Lloyd McKenzie, Grahame Grieve and Ewout Kramer will all be in attendance. The event promises to be another great opportunity for cross-industry training and collaboration.
And, as with all FHIR Connectathons, there are tracks. Via the FHIRplace, developers will be encouraged to work in the following lanes this time around:
- Patient: Create, update and search patients
- Terminology Services Track: expand valuesets, validate codes and retrieve human readable labels codes.
- Profile & Validation: Create a profile and an instance; ask a FHIR server to validate the instance
- "SMART on FHIR" track: Extend FHIR servers or build a client to add OAuth2 to the FHIR REST interface
- Imaging: Imaging results using Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard
- API Beginners Track: For those just starting out with FHIR client applications
- Community Track: Presentations of real life experiences with FHIR (schedule for those is found here)
We are looking forward to following the action and international perspective this week. As always, interoperability benefits greatly from frequent, iterative collaboration and a broad range of players from across the globe.
