About

Welcome to the Canadian FHIR implementation community forum. The purpose of this forum is to collaborate on areas of FHIR implementation that will advance implementations across Canada, while contributing to the global adoption of FHIR. The objective is to develop pan-Canadian approaches to constraining and extending FHIR. The community has been active since January 2016 and has been growing ever since!

The community currently has five streams of activity:
1. Topical workstreams
2. Monthly community calls to share workstream progress and other FHIR-related news
3. A general forum to ask questions and share information

The table below provides more details on the workstream activity:

Michael Savage created a new discussion in FHIR® Implementations

Hi all! This is just a reminder that we've added an additional Community-wide call on Wednesday October 20th, 12-1pm EST. The purpose of this additional Community Call is to serve as a Post-FHIR North Debrief, wherein we can discuss ideas that came out of the FHIR North Conference, and a chance for Conference attendees to join the FHIR Implementers Community for the first time & potentially drive new streams of work. If you've made some new connections at the conference, and feel it'd be valuable to bring those people into the FHIR Implementers Community, this would be a great occasion around which to loop them in. Thanks!

Michael Savage created a new discussion in FHIR® Implementations

Hi all! The agenda for this Friday's governance call is as follows: 1. Confirming how we will be encapsulating the different approaches that are available to folks looking to derive from the Baseline 2. Fielding some discussion questions for us to align around re: the above: will look at the timelines we can / should be associating with each of those options; is there a 'sequence' we can put interested parties on? Where will that implementation / derivation guidance live? Thank you!

Michael Savage created a new discussion in FHIR® Implementations

Hi all! A reminder that this Friday from 2-3pm Sheridan and I will be online (via the scheduled zoom meeting) to work through the Simplifier Issue log and commit the changes which were confirmed as part of the various DDR sessions. There is no formal agenda, as it's just some protected time for the two of us to work through the items. That said, you are welcome to join and listen in. Thank you!

TODAY: Empowering Developers to be Healthcare Heroes
Monday, October 04, 2021 05:30pm - 07:00pm

Serverless Toronto User Group is (virtually) hosting Kevin Maloy, MD – a practicing board-certified Emergency Medicine physician who can also code. Dr. Maloy will write a SMART on FHIR app that lets a patient figure out if they have been tested for Anemia because simple apps like this are probably the best entry into FHIR – without being too complex. The app will run in Cerner's SMART on FHIR sandbox, but Dr. Maloy will also explain how to launch the same code in Epic. Please bring your questions too, because Dr. Maloy has extensive knowledge of development within Cerner electronic health records (EHRs), he is a certified physician builder in Epic EHRs with a particular interest in Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) in the clinical environment, Cloud Computing and Machine Learning in health care.
