Clinical Genomics on FHIR at Connectathon

I have to say that the clinical genomics guys have to be the most organized workgroup that I have yet come across! (If there was the equivalent of the Harley Awards for being organized, then they would be the first recipients from me!).

They are hosting one of the tracks at the FHIR Connectathon (which is on in just a few hours!) and have created a plan for genomics in FHIR, plus a plan for the actual event  (link here: fhir_genomics_connectathon_agenda2) which includes remote access for those who can’t attend the event. They even have a downloadable VM with a genomics enabled server and their own website – how cool is that?

If you are at all interested in clinical genomics (and you really should be), then it’s hard to think of a better way to get involved…
