HL7 delivers healthcare interoperability standards

FHIR® Profiling training course

Number of Days: 1 day, 09:00 to 16:30. Your instructor is available during lunch and after 16:30 for informal discussions about your specific area of interest or applications.

Summary of course content: The FHIR profiling training course provides an in-depth discussion of the profiling mechanism offered by FHIR, inclusive of related aspects such as resource validation and the creation of implementation guides. FHIR offers a set of building blocks from which interoperability solutions can be created. Profiles combine those blocks into solutions, serving a similar purpose to implementation guides, templates, archetypes and detailed clinical models associated with other interoperability standards. The training course contains a series of hands-on exercises allowing the attendee to get a in depth understanding of the material covered.

Who Should Attend: This training course is aimed at those that are responsible for data modelling and conformance - and is aimed at both standards developers (who create implementation guides for others to implement) as well as standards implementers (who have to create interoperable software applications).
