HL7® FHIR® and SNOMED CT® Implementation Workshop

Wednesday 19 June 2019, Novotel Auckland Airport


This year’s HL7NZ mid-year event will focus on practical concerns with regard to the adoption of the critical HL7® FHIR® and SNOMED CT® standards in the NZ Health & Disability Sector. Our particular focus will be on how we can increase both the rate and quality of implementations.  The event will consist of two separate streams.


Stream A:  HL7® FHIR® Connectathon

Leader: Dr David Hay (HL7NZ Chair Emeritus and Co-Chair FHIR Management Group)


This is a significant opportunity to participate in a joint collaboration between HL7NZ Members and HISO to develop National FHIR Profiles and Implementation Guides for New Zealand. The Connectathon will be a practical event, using tooling and logical models to build profiles and supporting artefacts, e.g. extensions, for key FHIR resources such as Patient, Practitioner, Medication, Condition, AllergyIntolerance and Immunization.

In additionthere will be test servers available exposing the FHIR interfaces to the National NHI and HPI registries that are currently under development for client developers.


Stream BHL7 FHIR and SNOMED- CT Implementation in NZ

 Leader Peter Jordan (HL7NZ Chair and Co-Chair SNOMED on FHIR Project)


This will consist of a number of presentations and interactive discussions on key implementation concerns…

• Introduction to FHIR – Stakeholder Viewpoints (Peter Jordan)
• Clinical Perspective on Benefits to Patients and Healthcare (Karen Blake)
• SNOMED NZ Edition & SNOMED CT Tooling (Alastair Kenworthy)
• FHIR Services, Testing & Tooling (Peter Jordan)
