Connecting healthcare providers with standards

This workshop covers a range of topics related to electronic health communication and standardisation relevant to health providers, managers and IT industry. The unifying theme is examining the use of standards to move healthcare connectivity forward. While standards involved are somewhat “hidden” from view, knowing about them is crucial for purchasers and users of healthcare technology.

  • Digital hospitals – connecting medical devices and impact of EMR
  • Update on HL7 FHIR and implementation experience in IHE profiles
  • My Health Record – built on IHE standards; next steps in health information exchange
  • Usability and connectivity
