Topics & Speakers

SMART on FHIR In The Real World
Gasper will describe how they've used SMART on FHIR to integrate three major EMR companies with their solution that's being used for online multidisciplinary tumor boards. All of that required extensive alignment both on data level as well as on the semantic part of interoperability. In this talk, Gasper will cover how they've set out to handle those requirements as well as the problems they've stumbled along the way.
  • SMART on FHIR out in the wild
  • Multiple parallel SMART on FHIR integrations with a common denominator
  • How much it is plug'n play, and how much it is not

SMART On FHIR and Ways To Implement Security Policies
