NHS on FHIR

The NHS on FHIR event of 8 June 2017 was a great success, with over 150 participants from NHS hospitals and health IT vendors. The keynote speakers, trainers and panelists provided an introduction to FHIR for novices, elaborated on FHIR projects and implementation experiences in hospitals, and gave their vision on the relevance of FHIR for interoperability and the Health IT landscape.

For developers, clinical informaticists and software designers we provided two training courses: a crash course FHIR for developers and a FHIR for Specifiers tutorial for integration specialists and data modelers.

The event was organised by Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, HL7 UK and Furore Health Informatics.
