Track: Medical Research
Type: Tutorial
Keywords: Questionnaire, Mapping, SDC, Data Capture, Data Element
Target audience: Developers, Analysts, Architects

Questionnaires / Structured Data Capture
Questionnaires, forms and surveys permeate healthcare in clinical, research, administrative, financial and other areas. They easy ways to gather consistent data from patients, caregivers and other participants. However, they can be time-consuming to complete and often result in duplicate entry. Also, data captured using different forms is difficult to compare or even find. Structured Data Capture uses FHIR to support sophisticated Questionnaire design as well as automated population of questionnaire responses and extraction of data from responses into other FHIR resources such as Observation and MedicationStatement. The result is improved data quality, reduced user workload and greater interoperability. This presentation highlights the capabilities of FHIR to support sophisticated questionnaires, the trade-offs between Questionnaires and traditional resource representation as well as how to convert between the two styles.

Track: Medical Research
Type: Tutorial
Keywords: Clinical research, Trial design, Metadata mapping, (Electronic) Data capture, FAIR
Target audience: Information architects, researchers, data managers
Level audience: Beginners and experts

FHIR for clinical research
Electronic Data Capture (EDC) in clinical trials has been a manual, time consuming and error-prone task. Automated data entry via EHR linkage can greatly improve the efficiency of research personnel, improve the quality of the collected data and reduce the costs. As FHIR adoption in hospitals and EHRs rises, the EHR becomes a valuable data source for EDC tools. Data standardization and mapping from FHIR resource to research questions are required, but often hard to achieve.
In this session we will introduce the how the clinical research process works, from hypothesis to analysis, assess where FHIR can play a role, share our experiences with integrating two EHR’s into an online EDC tool (Castor EDC) via FHIR and we will do a hands-on mapping of FHIR resources to (standardized) research forms to discuss the challenges that come with this. .

GraphQL, FHIR and Javascript
GraphQL is a powerful new paradigm for building advanced APIs. It is built on a strongly-typed data model, which not only allows the client to specify which fields to return, but also allows for deep introspection of data models and parameters. This has enabled a rich ecosystem of client and server libraries, including UIs for navigating the data model. In this talk, the speaker will introduce GraphQL, explain how it fits into the FHIR ecosystem, and demonstrate how Asymmetrik built an extensible, secure FHIR server around an existing GraphQL javascript server library.

FHIRCast
FHIRcast is a specification aiming at making it easier to implement desktop synchronization between systems of different vendors. It builds on standard web technologies such as REST-ful services, WebSub and Websockets to communicate the context of a healthcare system's user-facing client as FHIR resources to other systems subscribed to these changes. To jump-start new developers, there is a sandbox utility as a reference implementation of the FHIRcast specification. The specification and the sandbox will be the focus of this talk.

New FHIR resources for Pharma Industry
New resources in FHIR cover the needs of the pharmaceuticals industry and regulatory bodies (such as EMA, FDA). These allied health domains need to cover medicinal products to a much greater detail than for direct patient care, including legal approvals, details of ingredient substances, packaging, manufacturers etc. The FHIR resources have similar coverage to the ISO IDMP logical models for products and substances (ISO 11615, 11238). They also have application in drug knowledge databases that can provide prescribing decision support, with coverage of drug interactions, contraindications etc. The tutorial gives an overview of this healthcare domain and the draft resources..

• Has your region started data exchange in FHIR? Setup an FHIR Server as your integration point to the project, and have it enforce the IG as a bonus.
• Data quality hard to maintain? State your rules as profiles and let a FHIR Server check them on your data.
• Do you have that legacy system that just won’t go away and won’t integrate either? Use a FHIR Server as a facade on top of it and have it speak FHIR.
• Looking for a generic back end for your apps? Deploy a FHIR Server that will host all the resources you need.
Christiaan will explain what a FHIR Server actually is and can do, and give an overview of all these uses.

XDS and FHIR
This tutorial will be focused on the IHE use of FHIR resources to enable API access to Document Sharing infrastructures based on XDS and XCA IHE profiles. These sharing platforms are diffused in many regions around the world. These sharing platoforms are used by many local, regional, national and cross-border projects. The Document Sharing environment provides a way for Clinical Practitioners or paitents to publish documents (e.g. CDA, C-CDA, DICOM, PDF, etc) such as medical summary, episode of care, discharge summary, laboratory results, x-ray, CT, MRI, and other. The IHE MHD Profile defines how FHIR enabled apps can discover these documents, retrieve them, and publish new documents.Advanced IHE Profiles that will be discussed show how these documents could be decomposed into FHIR Resources that are more naturally made available, with Provenance linkage back to the source document from which the FHIR Resource information comes.

These presentations are NOT a product showcase - the aim is to have max. 5 minutes to introduce a product/project, followed by a deep dive in things like the architectural approach, tools used, good/bad experiences with FHIR. The aim is for software implementers (even if they're not using the same architecture nor development platform) to learn from the development approach as used in other projects.

* System to system integration with FHIR
Nikolai Ryzhikov (CTO Health Samurai)
The REST API is good for client-server interaction, where client exists for quite a short timespan and syncs it state from a server. Scenarios which require the use of a distributed network of FHIR servers are much more challenging - e.g. intercommunication between servers and data aggregation from multiple different sources. Nikolai will provide an overview of existing FHIR features which can help to build system-system integration, and he'll explain a proposal for a FHIR transaction log based on REST and the Kafka API. This approach has number of interesting properties for integration and can be easily implemented for existing FHIR servers and clients.

The aim is for software implementers (even if they're not using the same architecture nor development platform) to learn from the development approach as used in other projects.

Target audience: intermediate audience interested in deep exploration and analysis of large FHIR datasets.

Scalable Data Science with FHIR
As healthcare datasets grow, so do the challenges of exploring and analyzing them. This tutorial looks at how FHIR can help even with petabyte-size datasets by natively encoding FHIR resources in popular tools for data science at scale. Attendees will use interactive Jupyter Notebooks and the Apache Spark processing engine to explore such data in an efficient, columnar format. Participants will work through data engineering and analysis examples and touch on machine learning. These examples are based on Bunsen, an open source project to simplify analyzing FHIR with tools like Apache Spark.

Prerequisites
For the best experience in this tutorial, attendees are encouraged to have Docker installed on their machines and run the following command to install a Docker image with the data science environment we will use: docker pull cerner/bunsen-notebook

Details on what is in this Docker image can be found here:http://engineering.cerner.com/bunsen/0.4.0/docker.html
