There is an exciting event coming up at the next HL7 FHIR Connectathon, in Chicago on Sept. 13-14. One of the announced tracks is on DICOMweb and FHIR ImagingStudy. This track will explore the intersections between the two standards, elicit feedback on what we got right in aligning the two standards together, and likely create/show some stellar implementations in the process.
Given the success of this year’s hackathon at SIIM, I think this connectathon track will be very interesting. At SIIM, I witnessed magic being made, as those participating created exciting new integrations from the standards. There is so much unlocked potential when considering how the two can be integrated; the insight and feedback from September’s event will be very, very interesting.
