FHIR Overview Course

The 3-Day HL7 FHIR Online Training Course

September 28-30, 2020 (11:00 AM-4:00 PM ET)

Learn the key aspects of Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR).
Be the FHIR expert in your team and help your organization determine if,
when, and how you should implement it.


Enroll for the most comprehensive way to learn FHIR, with 50% of the program dedicated to hands-on exercises.

Duration: 3 days, 5 hours a day

Attendees: Health IT professionals involved in the design, development, implementation, deployment or support of systems that will use HL7 FHIR

What’s included?

The course is spread out over 3 days to allow
for reflection and self-study by the participants:

Day 1

Discover the design rationale for FHIR, its core information models and the RESTful way of exchanging these models.

Day 2

Learn about the FHIR Conformance layer, and the use of FHIR based transactions, documents, messages and services.

Day 3

Cover the various methods to Search FHIR based data, the use of codes and terminologies, and an overview of how FHIR can be used in the context of the attendees.


After this course, attendees will be able to explain the key principles of the FHIR methodology. They will understand the relationship between FHIR and other standards (HL7 CDA, HL7 v2, IHE XDS). They will also know how to use documentation and how to reach other experts. Last but not least, they will master how to use FHIR in different interoperability paradigms (REST, messaging, e-documents, services).

Prerequisites: We assume attendees are familiar with XML, JSON, and web infrastructure protocols. Familiarity with the general principles of data modeling and software development (e.g. object orientation, databases, and layered software design) will also be useful.

Who is it for?

Healthcare Providers

Drive down costs and save time. Exchange patient data without having to customize every instance.


Break down siloes in your data stack. Bring all your data sets together, from clinical data to claims data.

App Developers

Work with a standard that’s faster to implement and more powerful than other interoperability standards.

Help move the health care industry forward

The HL7 FHIR Standard makes health information easily accessible among patients, healthcare providers, researchers, and app developers. All with one goal: help our doctors, nurses, and clinicians provide better care to patients.
