  • disseminate IHE profiles that rely on HL7® FHIR®.
  • make the users community aware of potential solutions to common use-cases that can benefit from IHE profiles based on HL7® FHIR®
  • share experiences related to national projects.
  • train vendors on how to implement IHE profiles based on HL7® FHIR® with hands-on sessions, interacting with simulators in a no-peer environment (controlled playground) with the support of dedicated standard tech specialists.  
The group’s special focus lies on exploring use-cases and real project-implementations using a use-case driven approach in solving interoperability problems.
