Number of Days
|Two 8-hour days (face-to-face training course), or three 5-hour sessions on 3 different days (online training courses)|
Who should attend
|Those involved with the design, development, implementation,
deployment and support of systems that use (or will use) HL7 FHIR.
Summary of course content
This training course offers a hands-on overview of the HL7 FHIR standard. Around 50% of the course is spent on hands-on exercises.
The dates for the in-company training courses are flexible and can be agreed depending on the availability of your team. The open training courses (whether online or face-to-face) have fixed dates.
Goals of the training course
Upon completion of this training course, attendees will be able to:
- Explain the key principles underlying the FHIR methodology.
- Explain the relationship between FHIR and related standards (e.g. HL7 CDA/HL7 v2/IHE XDS).
- Describe the characteristics and contents of the core FHIR information models.
- Understand how to fully use the documentation, and how to reach out to other experts and implementers.
- Explain how FHIR may be used in different interoperability paradigms (REST, messaging, e-documents, services).
- Build upon hands-on experience with FHIR gained during the training course.
- Help their organization to determine if, when, where and how they might implement FHIR
The attendees are assumed to be familiar with:
- XML, Json and web-infrastructure protocols,
- General principles of data modeling,
- General software development principles like object orientation, databases, layered software design.
