Let's call it a FHIRabend

Some of my readers may have wondered about this Blog's name, which certainly isn't self-explanatory outside of Germany (or outside the FHIR-Community for that matter).

The acronym FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) is a masterstroke from the pen of our interoperability poet, Rene Spronk!

The capabilities for wordplays and associations are endless and the creativity within the community to come up with new ideas, names and taglines never ceases to amuse me.

Setting the campus on FHIR

I am regularly teaching at my alma mater, the University of Heidelberg/Heilbronn University's faculty for medical informatics. My class aims to offer a "hands on" interoperability course teaching students not only about communication standards in healthcare but also how to deploy them in real live scenarios.

and hilarious.

With thanks to Rene Spronk for the idea, lyrics, vocals, production and recruitment :)

Yet another FHIR blog!

When I decided to start this blog a couple of weeks ago, I felt there was a gap on the internet that needed to be filled.
