The FHIR Connectathon 19 in Baltimore will feature testing opportunities for IICC LOINC to In Vitro Diagnostic (LIVD).
The FHIR Connectathon will be held Saturday Sept 29 and Sunday Sept 30 at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore Inner Harbor, Baltimore, MD prior to the Sept. HL7 Working Group Meeting. It will feature several tracks, including testing of LIVD (LOINC to In Vitro Diagnostic) on FHIR, the standard for health care data exchange published by HL7®.
LIVD defines the digital publication of LOINC using vendor defined IVD tests associated with a set of predefined LOINC codes. It assures that laboratory personnel select the appropriate LOINC codes for IVD test used by their laboratory. It also allows LIS systems to automatically map the correct IVD vendor test result to a LOINC code. The objective of LIVD on FHIR is for IVD vendors to make their publication available at least as a file (e-mail, downloadable, CD, website link) or on a FHIR server.
The Connectathon is a great format where participants can get together and test their software implementation of updates to FHIR using real-world scenarios in an informal and live way. Onsite access to FHIR test servers is provided. Sufficient time is provided for break-out sessions for demonstrations and in-depth discussions.
