HL7 New Zealand – Members Update: December 2018

The 2018 Annual General Meeting was held at the offices of Sysmex NZ, 386 Manukau Road, Auckland on Wednesday 28th November at 4 p.m.  Eleven of the previous Board Members were re-elected along with Karen Blake (Health Alliance) who replaces Edwin Ng.

 At the first meeting of the new Board, held directly afterwards, the following officers were unanimously elected: Peter Jordan (Chairman), Peter Sergent (ViceChairman), David Moorhouse (Treasurer), Linda McKay (Secretary).  Under new Constitutional rules, the Chairman and Secretary will serve two year terms.

 Full minutes of the meeting, including reports from the Chairman and Treasurer are available for viewing as are biographies of all Board Members.

 New Zealand’s first‘official’ HL7® FHIR® Connectathon took place on November 20th at part of the hugely successful HiNZ 2018 Conference in Wellington. We were fortunate to attract several experts from both sides of the Tasman to assist an engaged group of participants from across the NZ Health & Disability Sector, and the following presenters have kindly agreed to share their presentations from that day:

 David Hay: Introduction to FHIR

Brian Postlethwaite: Provider Directory Services.

We are already planning our Event Calendar for 2019, starting with a series of Webinars for our Members on discrete topics such as ‘Securing FHIRAPIs’. Further details will be forthcoming early in the New Year.
