FHIR Meetup: Expert Panel and Networking Event


Health Samurai and UCSF Health Hub are partnering with the Society of Physician Entrepreneurs, and Health Technology Forum to bring conversations about FHIR to San Francisco during the week of the JP Morgan Healthcare conference. Come mingle with the UCSF Health Hub community and hear from experts in FHIR. This event is an excellent forum to learn, discuss your use cases and problems with other healthcare IT professionals, and network.

Come find out how you can start using FHIR in your provider organization, pharmaceutical company, or digital health startup right away. According to the ONC, 87% of hospitals already have products that are FHIR-certified. This means most healthcare data is accessible, or will soon be accessible in the FHIR format.
