Make innovative health IT your daily job


We are looking to strengthen our FHIR team with data modelers. HL7 FHIR (pronounce “fire”) is the new international standard for information exchange in healthcare. Within our team you will work on challenging projects at our offices in the Netherlands and on location at the customer sites (national and international).

What does the job entail?

Firely specializes in software development and consulting in healthcare and research. Customers are care providers, vendors and health agencies in Europe and the US. An important part of our activities is the involvement in the development of both the FHIR standard itself and FHIR tooling and open source libraries.

You will analyze the information needs of the client and design the HL7 FHIR data models. You are innovative in your approach to improving modeling that is not done in accordance with the standard and communicate these findings with the FHIR community accordingly.
