Firely recognized as an official HL7 FHIR Education Partner

AMSTERDAM, April 24, 2024 — HL7 International has recognized Firely as an official FHIR Education Partner through its Education Partner Program — only the second organization to be awarded the honor.

The Program establishes partnerships with organizations that share a passion for creating and delivering HL7 FHIR education across the healthcare ecosystem. This partnership solidifies Firely’s commitment to delivering high-quality FHIR training to healthcare professionals worldwide. 

As a leading digital healthcare company, Firely has been at the forefront of FHIR development and education. With a dedicated team of FHIR-passionate developers, Firely maintains essential FHIR tools such as Firely Server, the official open-source .NET SDK for HL7 FHIR, and the FHIR collaboration platform,  

To achieve recognition as an HL7 Education Partner, Firely met stringent criteria, including the requirement for trainers to be HL7 certified educators. The HL7 Certified Educator Program (CEP) recognizes educators who demonstrate excellence as both HL7 instructors and HL7 subject matter experts. Having provided FHIR education since its inception, Firely’s trainers are some of the leading experts in the industry.  

Beyond technical knowledge, HL7 certified educators must also demonstrate strong verbal communication skills via prior training, teaching, or presentation experience. This certification ensures that Firely’s trainers possess both the technical expertise and instructional skills necessary to deliver exceptional FHIR education. 

With a comprehensive offering of all the tools, education, services, and expertise needed to bring FHIR to life, Firely seeks to continue to support the FHIR community by expanding its portfolio of training courses, some of which will now be available as part of HL7 International’s offerings.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by HL7 International as an official HL7 Education Partner. This partnership underscores our commitment to advancing FHIR education and we’re honored to be entrusted with the delivery of these courses to continue empowering healthcare professionals worldwide.”

Rien Wertheim, CEO, Firely
