FHIR and LOINC go together like chips and salsa: FHIR’s standardized resources and API are the perfect delivery vehicle for clinical data coded with LOINC, the freely available international vocabulary standard for identifying health measurements, observations, and documents. LOINC is now ubiquitous in health data systems worldwide, and is an essential ingredient of system interoperability. In this session, we’ll get acquainted with the basics of LOINC, tour the common FHIR resources where you can make use of LOINC coded health data, and explore the LOINC-specific features in FHIR’s terminology services.

Rob Hausam <span>Terminology</span>
16:20 - 17:00
Track: Terminology
Type: Tutorial
Keywords: Terminology services, operations, vocabulary standards, interoperability, SNOMED CT, LOINC
Target audience: Implementers, developers, analysts, architects, interface engineers, anyone interested in using standardized coded data in FHIR

FHIR and terminology services are a perfect combination. FHIR provides a platform and is a significant enabler for deploying standardized terminology services and any FHIR application that uses coded clinical data (i.e. pretty much all of them) can benefit from using these services to help manage the complexity in the terminology world – they need each other. This tutorial provides an overview of the foundational FHIR terminology resources (CodeSystem, ValueSet, ConceptMap) and operations ($expand, $lookup, $validate-code, $translate, $subsumes) and examples of how they can be used with common standard clinical terminologies including SNOMED CT and LOINC. Some ways of using these capabilities in practical applications will be introduced and exercises for further exploration will be provided.

Type: Presentations
Keywords: Apps, App development, Showcase open source tools, commercial toolkits
Target audience: All

This session consists of 2 community presentations, which focus on the implementation best practices of their project/product. 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.

The first presentation entitled "Building responsive SMART apps, lessons learned" will be presented by Brian Kaney (Vermonster LLC, US). Brian's talk will focus on some of the approaches to model a SMART on FHIR (and CDS Hook) application. He has direct experience building a few production apps at places such as McKesson. He will discuss flexible patterns and analogies, similar to responsive web design (RWD), including testing and responding to capabilities and limitations of integration partners.

The second talk, entitled "App Implementation Challenges at Intermountain" will be presented by Stan Huff (Intermountain). Stan will cover lessons learned during the implementation of the Boston Children's Pediatric Growth Chart application at Intermountain, with an emphasis on the challenges of standardizing the LOINC codes used in the application.
The kinds of challenges were: matching LOINC codes used in the application to the correct data elements in the host EHR, differences in the version of FHIR being used by the application versus what version of services were available from the vendor, the challenges when printing from the application, and changes in the clinical workflow that were needed to get the information to support the application logic.

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.

The first presentation, entitled "FHIR and the Apple Health Kit" will be provided by Ron Shapiro (VP/CTO, Qvera). This presentation will show how using FHIR can enable iOS developers to securely integrate personal health observations stored in the Apple Health Kit. This can allow individuals to send these personal observations directly to their healthcare provider's EMR system. Using the Apple Health Kit API, these observations can be queried for and transformed into FHIR JSON resources. The FHIR JSON resources are then transported securely to an integration engine gateway that brokers the posting of the FHIR resources into the patient's electronic chart. This presentation will provide specific details on the best way to create the FHIR resources from the data provided by the Apple Health Kit API.

The second presentation, entitled "FHIR security in NodeJS" will be held by Andrew Marcus and Bryan Young (from Asymmetrik). They will talk about their experiences building the winning server architecture for ONC’s Secure FHIR Server challenge. The speakers will discuss Asymmetrik's technical approach to building a FHIR server that’s secure, extensible and scalable, and can be connected to any data source. They will cover best practices around security and how to apply them to FHIR. They will also discuss challenges they encountered along the way, including performing validation across the massive spec, implementing multiple versions of FHIR, and integrating with different OAuth servers with different capabilities.

This session consists of a series of "8-minute Tooling talks" to introduce you to FHIR tools (of whatever kind, whether open source or commercial) that ease the life of the average FHIR implementer. Below a list of tooling talks that have been scheduled - other tools will be added at a later point in time:

* "Qvera FHIR Starter Kit" by Ron Shapiro (VP/CTO, Qvera):
This presentation will show how the Qvera FHIR Starter Kit provides an introduction to FHIR web service calls and resources. Supports the creation and testing of RESTful web service calls; the conversion of FHIR to/from other formats (e.g. v2.x, CDA, DB queries, CSV, HTML) as well as the conversion of FHIR XML to JSON and v.v.

* "Carium DB version-control, and Carium CCDA importer" by Eko Prasetya (Carium). These tools are used to manage data from multiple different sources, and keep track of changes, so that we don't have to fully merge the data on every change.

* "FHIR Toolkit and FHIR Notepad++ plug-in" by Grahame Grieve (Healthcare Intersections). The FHIR Toolkit is an application for FHIR developers to use to explore servers, edit and validate code systems, value sets, capability statements, and questionnaires, and do other useful things to support the development process. The FHIR Notepad++ plug-in is a plug-in for the widely used notepad++ editor that brings validation, editing support, open and saving files on servers, and template and code generation support.

* "Profiling with Forge", by Michel Rutten (Firely). Forge is a user-friendly Windows desktop application for authoring HL7 FHIR profiles. In this session we will introduce the tool, discuss recent changes and have a brief look at the roadmap.

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.

The first presentation, which is entitled "To Subscribe or Hook for CDS" will be co-presented by Arun Srinivasan (CDC) and Mr. Rishi Tarar (NG). In this session, they will share some of the lessons from the work with CDC's Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke (PCNAS) Registry Program where CDS is implemented using a combination of FHIR Subscriptions and CQL. The presenters will review the approach and offer insights from the implementation.
The second presentation, entitled "Leveraging FHIR for microservices strategy" will be provided by Ann Guilinger and Bryan Knight (Athenahealth). FHIR has been proven as an effective standard for exchanging healthcare information, but its potential applications extend beyond traditional interoperability. Microservices can enable quicker feature development through defined boundaries, polyglot development (use the language best suited for the problem), and standardized communication. This presentation will describe how to use FHIR to expose well-modeled, generally understandable information in real-time, for both external and internal users.

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.

The first presentation, entitled "Implementation Approaches to FHIR Resource Storage" will be held by Andrew Gregorowicz (Mitre). This talk will explore different architectural approaches to the storage of FHIR resources. The talk will cover the investigation of one of the back ends of the HAPI FHIR server, implementation of our go-based FHIR server and finally some small scale experimentation with a project called Candle. They will explore the benefits and drawbacks that three different implementations provide for developer ease of use, performance, scalability (using Synthea data) and maintainability.

The second presentation, entitled "Indexing a half-billion FHIR resources" will be presented by Kurt Ericson (Google). He will provide a discussion about considerations to efficiently index and query hundreds of millions of FHIR resources including a summary of architectural trade-offs and the consequences for FHIR-based applications.

FHIR and Public Health

Keywords: FHIR, SMART on FHIR, Vital Statistics, Public Health
Target audience: General audience, Health IT architects, developers, and integrators

While originally created for the clinical setting, the FHIR standard is beginning to be used to address interoperability challenges in public health. The roots of public health surveillance date back hundreds of years to the use of death certificates to understand why people die and help determine how health can be improved. In the United States, mortality reporting is a complex and decentralized process that begins when the decedent is pronounced dead. A physician pieces together the decedent’s medical history and circumstances around the death to determine an immediate cause, underlying factors, and other significant conditions that contributed. If there are reasons to suspect unnatural causes, a medical examiner or coroner meticulously combs through the forensic evidence. Basic demographic information is verified, typically by a funeral home. The death is then registered. A certificate is issued, and the data flow continues from the field, through the States, territories, and other reporting jurisdictions to the National Center for Health Statistics. This tutorial will demonstrate how public health agencies are turning to FHIR and SMART-on-FHIR to help move mortality reporting from its current state to a FHIR-enabled ecosystem that provides more actionable insights, on a near real-time basis.

Scalable Data Science with FHIR
11:00 - 11:40
Ryan Brush<span>Medical Research</span>
11:00 - 11:40
Track: Medical Research
Type: Tutorial
Keywords: FHIR, Apache Spark, Machine Learning, Jupyter
Target audience: intermediate audience interested in deep exploration and analysis of large FHIR datasets.

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:

Josh Mandel, Dan Gottlieb<span>Medical Research</span>
11:50 - 12:30
Track: Medical Research
Type: Tutorial
Keywords: Data Export, Population Data, ETL, OAuth, Asynchronous FHIR
Target audience: Beginner to intermediate audience with interest in implementing or using open standards to export and import population level FHIR data from clinical systems, payment systems, and data warehouses.

Healthcare organizations have many reasons for bulk-data export, such as populating a data warehouse for operational or clinical analytics, leveraging population health and decision support tools from external vendors, and submitting data to regulatory agencies. Today, bulk export is often accomplished with proprietary pipelines, and data transfer operations frequently involve an engineering and field mapping project. Learn about an exciting new effort by SMART and HL7 to bring the FHIR standard to bear on these challenges of bulk-data export.
