FHIR for Architects

About this event

HL7™ FHIR® is attracting significant attention as it is at the core of a proposed rule recently announced by the ONC and CMS. Now is the time to get on board and learn FHIR®!

This class will help participants understand where and how FHIR® might fit into their healthcare interoperability environment. It will also provide the tools to make judgements about when or if FHIR® might be an appropriate solution for their healthcare IT needs. All sessions will be recorded and made available to registrants.

This online education track will include the following:

  • Session 1 – REST, document, messaging and services interoperability paradigms; FHIR® architecture approaches 
  • Session 2 – FHIR® features impacting solution design
  • Session 3 – Additional considerations, profiles and adoption strategies


Upon completion of this online class, attendees will be able to:

  • Explain how FHIR® may be used in different interoperability paradigms
  • Describe how FHIR® can fit in different locations in the architectural stack
  • Identify architectural considerations that apply to FHIR® and determine how best to address those in their own FHIR® solutions
  • Provide an explanation of the use of FHIR® for persistence, decision support and other "non-exchange" purposes
  • Give guidance on if, when and how FHIR® might be used within their own organisation
  • Explain how FHIR® solutions can co-exist with and interoperate with other interoperability solutions (V2, CDA™, V3, DICOM and OpenEHR)

Who should attend?

  • CIOs​
  • Architects
  • Development leads
  • Anyone who is interested in exploring the various architectural options available to FHIR®-based interoperability solutions
