Type: Tutorial
Keywords: vocabulary standards, terminology services, interoperability, LOINC
Type: Tutorial
Target audience: Informaticians, analysts, data scientists, software developers, interface engineers, researchers, trainees or anyone who interacts with structured health information need a basic understanding of vocabulary standards that are used to integrate data from many different sources. Having a basic understanding of LOINC and how to make use of it with FHIR will facilitate a wide variety of use cases, storing and retrieving patient data, developing analytic approaches or visual displays of aggregate health data, architecting a national eHealth strategy, or designing a mobile health app that needs to exchange data with other systems.

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.

FHIR and Devices (Connecting Devices & Apps: How hard can it be?!)

For decades accessing information from healthcare devices has been both challenging and expensive. The Devices on FHIR (DoF) initiative – a collaborative effort between HL7, IHE & PCHA – leverages the simplicity of HL7 FHIR to make the exchange and use of device-sourced content just as simple as any other type of information. With this new-found patient information, whole new application areas are opened up for innovative developers. Learn how DoF is making this a reality today, how to leverage profiling artifacts, device semantics, harmonization with IHE PCD V2 & IEEE 11073, with an example postnatal preeclampsia narrative spanning care contexts.

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 “Implementing a national CDSS for citizens and professionals using CDS Hooks” will be held by Joonas Mäkinen (Duodecim, Finland). He will discuss the Implementation experiences of a national CDSS (Clinical Decision Support System) using CDS Hooks and various FHIR STU3 resources, beginning with Questionnaire, QuestionnaireResponse and ActivityDefinition.

The second talk will be held by Alexander Henket (Nictiz, the Netherlands) on the topic of "MedMij - Personal health data in the palm of your hand". Dutch national program MedMij aims to enable Personal Health Environments for all citizens by 2020. Alexander will provide an overview of the program, inclusive of the creation of FHIR profiles based on logical models (Clinical Building Blocks).

In this presentation we’ll cover Profiling from the perspective of the Business Analyst (BA) and Clinician – what profiling is used for rather than the details of how it works ‘under the hood’. We’ll discuss the different aspects of Profiling – constraining Resources, changing terminology binding and adding new elements to a resource (extensions). We’ll take a look at how the components of clinFHIR can be used to help the Clinician/BA understand this capability by building all the components of a simple Profile – up to and including the Implementation Guide that binds all the parts together. Finally we’ll describe the exercise for you to complete between sessions.

Track: Community
Type: Presentations
Keywords: Community presentation, FHIR projects, best practices
Target audience: Developers

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 “Proof of concept for clinical models” will be presented by Johan Eltes (Inera, Sweden). Johan will describe the proof-of-concept for the use of FHIR profiles as basis for the exchange of Detailed Clinical Models (DCMs), e.g. for growth measurements within school care. He will also discuss plans to adopt FHIR by using PCHA continua profiles (Observation Upload, Questionnaire).
• The second presentation entitled “NHS FHIR Landscape “ will be presented by Richard Kavanagh (NHS Digital, UK). Richard willl cover the FHIR landscape they have in the NHS, the projects they have underway, the mix of REST, Messaging & Document approaches and the supporting ecosystem they are building, e.g. automated testing.

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, enititled “SIIM Dataset and DICOMweb Proxy” will be presented by Mohannad Hussain (Agfa, Canada). This talk will shine some light on two projects harboured at the SIIM conference. First is SIIM's (the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine) own FHIR + DICOMweb dataset, painting a realistic picture of 5 different patient profiles with a variety of FHIR resources that are also connected to DICOM images, allowing for real-life like testing of medical applications. The second is an ambitious proof of concept to enable traditional DICOM PACS devices to be DICOMweb enabled using an open-source proxy service - this expedite the rate of innovation in medical imaging thanks to ease of integrating with DICOMweb's APIs over traditional DICOM.

The second presentation, entitled “One API to bind them all (and it's not FHIR)” will be presented by Ivan Sager (SocialCare, US). Ivan's company has created an open application program interface, called SocialCare which leverages FHIR. It is a platform to accelerate development of healthcare applications for software developers — similar to how Apple Inc. has opened up iOS for mobile developers to create apps for the phone- and tablet-wielding masses. The presentation is a deep dive into our learnings and how we are solving interoperability with FHIR while FHIR and other standards continue to evolve.

Directories are needed in healthcare for much more than just a list of providers or organizations, and self-managing an internal list is no longer good enough. Healthcare environments require all these directories to work together, and this session will cover what information is typically found in what types of directories and how we can use FHIR to manage this content, and searching techniques. The current profile for the Australian Provider Directory used for secure messaging, and the progress on the Validated Healthcare Directory Implementation guide will also be presented.
