Health Level Seven (HL7) Italy Open Days 2012 - The Architecture of eHealth
The 2012 edition of Open Days, an event co-hosted by HL7 Italy and Invitalia, explores the use of HL7 standards from the architectural viewpoint. Services, Interoperability Frameworks and Functional Models are frequently perceived as marginal practices, but recently these are moving to the centre of concern.
The mission of the HL7 Italy Open Days 2012 is centred on overcoming the vision of HL7 only as a messaging standard and considering it as an architecture for interoperability that resolves several business problems of healthcare.
The event's message is that a messaging standard per-se is not enough without a real architectural approach. If organisations use HL7 messaging/document standards progress is surely made, but without an architecture (business, services and systems, implementations) the organisations simply do not fulfil their objectives.
The users and designers of eHealth technology should leave the prejudice that interoperability must be considered as a traditional application development and only a technical question. More specifically HL7 believes that the HL7 Services (HSSP), Interoperability Framework (SAIF) and Functional Models (EHR-S) build a pervasive approach that changes the public's vision of eHealth that "needs to be owned by the business and not IT". OpenDays 2012 outlines a survey of this evolution with practical examples given supplied by international and national speakers. Special attention will be given to the understanding of terminology services, as a key element in a real service aware architecture.
The HL7 Italy Open Days 2012 target audience includes:
- Decision Makers
- Managers of Healthcare Organisations
- Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and Chief Technical Officers (CTOs)
- Business Analysts
- Technical specialists.
This is a free, open to all event, attendance is however limited to 80 people. More details about registration will be available soon on the event webpage.
