HL7 34th Annual Plenary & Working Group Meeting

Network, learn, and influence interoperability! Join colleagues for the 34th Annual Plenary & WGM. 

HL7 International Working Group Meetings (WGMs) are held three times per year at varying locations and serve two important purposes:

  1. Provide the HL7 International work groups the opportunity to meet in person and work on standards, as well as to network with industry leaders from around the world.
  2. Offer an invaluable educational resource for the healthcare IT community.

HL7 International has more than 40 work groups dedicated to specialized areas of interest such as Fast Health Interoperability Resources (FHIR) Infrastructure, Mobile Health and Electronic Health Records. These work groups are directly responsible for the content of standards and spend much of their time at WGMs hard at work on standards development. Attending a WGM is a great way to learn about a particular area, and everyone attending a WGM is invited to any of the work group meetings.

The Plenary meeting will occur in two parts with staggered times in an effort to accommodate various time zones: Monday 10:00 AM EDT and Wednesday 4:00 PM EDT. The Plenary meeting on Wednesday at 4 pm EDT will cover three items: Annual business meeting (includes announcement of election results for the Board, TSC and other leadership roles), Plenary Meeting, Part 2, Pub Crawl.

A Co-chair poll is being conducted to identify times when specific Work Groups will meet (occurring on even number hours) and also for topics which will be addressed during the topic sessions. WG AGENDAS

KGC 2020: A Digital Experience

The Knowledge Graph Conference has transformed into a global, digital-first, multi-day event connecting attendees to speakers and each other through streamed keynotes, breakout sessions, workshops, tutorials and more. This opens up a lot of potential for the event, and while some of the in-person dynamics will be lost, they expect to craft a unique experience and engage a much broader global audience as a result.

For KGC 2020, attendees can participate from wherever they want in the world, from the comfort of their homes. We will stream the content, provide access to our speakers, and support chat and networking as well as give access to all of the content live and on-demand after the event.  

Knowledge Graphs create an organized and curated set of facts that provide support for models to help understand the world. This conference gathers technology leaders, researchers, academics—and most importantly, practitioners who know the discipline. 

Clinical Data Interoperability and Query Workshop

1-day virtual workshop 8 am PT/11 am ET to 1 pm PT/4 pm ET 

The CTSA network can synergize its talent and data to achieve insights into disease causes, optimal treatments, and natural history. Accomplishing this endeavor poses some challenges, including harmonizing clinical data, accessing data, and performing query efforts. The use of common data models can mitigate many of the challenges surrounding data interoperability, and have led to the evolution of several strategies for federated query.

CD2H is following the success of last year’s workshop on Federated Data Query to convene a similar group of CTSA informatics personnel and related investigators with the following example questions:

  • How can curated repositories of cross mappings among common data models advance translational research aims?
  • How can the Health Open Terminologies Ecosystem initiative advance the integration of ontologies, value sets, and terminologies used in translational research?
  • Will the publication of algorithms to convert FHIR messages from APIs into common data model specifications (initially ACT for CTSA engagement) provide value to CTSA hubs?
