Interoperability standards Overview Course

Do you wish to learn how FHIR relates to other healthcare interoperability standards? Learn the key characteristics of commonly used interoperability standards. Is your project based on multiple standards? This course will show you how they fit together.

Training

What is it about?

This training course covers interoperability between software applications in healthcare.

  • The key areas in which standardization is needed (e.g. workflows, messages, documents, terminologies and identification schemes)
  • The key characteristics of some of the most commonly used interoperability standards, e.g. FHIR, CDA, DICOM, HL7 version 2, IHE, IEEE 11073, SNOMED and ICD.

What skills will I gain?

Upon completion of this training course, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the key characteristics of a number of commonly used interoperability standards
  • Explain the relationship between HL7, IHE and DICOM standards
  • Understand the key role of terminologies (e.g. SNOMED or ICD) as used by interoperability standards
  • Decide which standard is the best fit for a particular kind of workflow
