What we'll do
We are super excited to have our next meetup over at InterSystems in their brand new meeting space. We have two talks planned, with Q&A and networking. Food and beverages are provided by our host, InterSystems!
Doors open at 5:30pm, we should start the first talk around 6pm. We will have a short break between talks for announcements, including job opportunities.
We are in the middle of changes in healthcare technology that affect the strategies of companies and organizations across the globe, including many startups right here in Massachusetts. Micky Tripathi from the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative is going to talk to us about the opportunities and consequences of API-based healthcare.

The establishment of FHIR as a new healthcare data format creates new opportunities and challenges. Health professionals would like to acquire patient data from Electronic Health Records (EHR) with FHIR, and use it for population health management and research.
FHIR provides resources and foundations based on XML and JSON data structures. However, traditional analytic tools are difficult to use with these structures. We created a prototype application to ingest FHIR bundles and save the Patient and Observation resources as objects/tables in InterSystems IRIS for Health. Developers can then easily create derived "fact tables" that de-normalize these tables for exploration and analytics.
We will demo this application and our analytics tools using the InterSystems IRIS for Health platform.
