Who should attend? IT students, developers, vendors, clinicians
  • ClinFHIR – Monday 7 November 2016. A key success point for any health informatics standard, including FHIR, is the understanding of clinical use cases and scenarios.

Who should attend? Clinicians and other healthcare providers, medical students.
