Connectathon No. 4 - National Clinical Terminology Service

The Australian Digital Health Agency in collaboration with CSIRO, is hosting its fourth technical Connectathon on the National Clinical Terminology Service (NCTS) including its use of HL7's Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®). This Connectathon is being held on 5 and 6 December, in Melbourne.

Please note that this is event is held concurrently to the Secure Messaging Connectathon.

The NCTS Connectathon has two tracks:

1. A technically focussed stream for developers, run by developers focussed on:

a. The NCTS’s FHIR STU3 upgrade and use of the NCTS services in general.

b. Services to support more advanced AMT and Medication use cases, including trialling FHIR Medication resources as a solution.

2. NCTS education sessions for:

a. Technical users without prior FHIR, terminology, or NCTS knowledge.

b. Non-technical users interested in creating and maintaining their own FHIR datasets, and mapping to SNOMED CT AU including AMT (bring your own data or use sample data), using tools such as Snapper.

To support the Connectathon, and to ensure participants can hit the ground running, it is anticipated that a webinar will be held before the Connectathon to introduce the tracks including their objectives, the outline of the track activities as well as any recommended prerequisites.

Due to the high levels of interest and limited spaces available, please register for your preferred track at the NCTS Connectathon via [email protected] by COB Friday 17 November.

There is no charge to attend the NCTS Connectathon and catering is provided.

An official invitation will be forwarded to confirmed attendees with specific details about the location, structure of the event and access to a secure portal containing relevant materials.

For those unable to attend this event, additional Connectathons will be held in the future. The Agency will also hold more general webinars (non-technical) and updates on the NCTS over the next several months.
