Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources

My goal in making this course was to make it as simple as possible, so that you can get your feet wet with hands-on exercises.

The hands-on exercise uses free Mirth Connect and will walk you through the following:

  1. Installing Mirth Connect.
  2. Connecting Mirth Connect to a live FHIR® server via a real EHR FHIR® test system.
  3. An example of transforming FHIR® in XML format (Patient Resource) to HL7® v2 (ADT A08).
  4. Fun Quiz.
  5. FREE Lifetime Support. An invitation to join our HL7®/FHIR® community on Slack.
  6. Certificate you can print to prove you have taken this course.
