The NIH and other organizations that deal with clinical data for research purposes increasingly recommend the use of FHIR as a standardized and reliable way to structure and transfer data. As FHIR increasingly becomes the best practice and the gold standard, what do organizations need to know? And how do they integrate FHIR into their apps and processes?
Join the UNC-Chapel Hill Carolina Health Informatics Program on November 22 for a 3-hour workshop to gain a detailed introduction to the FHIR standard. Participants will leave with a solid understanding of what FHIR is, what it does, its limitations/scope, and its role in health informatics today. Although we will review some code, this workshop is designed to be appropriate for all roles and levels of expertise.
The workshop is presented by the Carolina Health Informatics Program (CHIP) at UNC-Chapel Hill. It will take place on campus at the Health Sciences Library. For details and to register, visit fridaycenter.unc.edu/FHIR.
