HL7 FHIR Connectathon
The newly formed HL7 Vulcan Accelerator on Translational Research will feature in their track, thePhenopacket project. The Vulcan Accelerator is dedicated to connecting clinicalresearch and healthcare bringing together representatives from governmentagencies, academia, technology companies, standards development organizations,patients and industry consortiums. The goal is to bring together thesestakeholders, who have been working in silos together to advance thedevelopment and use of FHIR.
The Phenopacket project is designed to increase availability of high-quality standardizedphenotypic information for genomic research and genomic medicine in computableform. Participating in the accelerator will hopefully rapidly advance theexchange of genomic and related phenotypic information with the EHRs.
Feedback isimportant to the success of this effort so we need your help to test ourefforts through these connectathons. Please let us know if you can participateand we encourage you to spread the word to others who are interested inadvancing the exchange and use of phenotypic data.
