TITLE: Introduction and RDF Representation of FHIR for Clinical Data
DATE: Friday, December 12, 2014
TIME: 2 PM Eastern / 11 AM Pacific
PRICE: Free to all attendees
DESCRIPTION: In our series on The Yosemite Project, we explore RDF as a data standard for health data. Our speaker, Joshua Mandel, will provide a lightning tour of Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR), an emerging clinical data standard, with a focus on its resource-oriented approach, and a discussion of how FHIR intersects with the Semantic Web. We’ll look at how FHIR represents links between entities; how FHIR represents concepts from standards-based vocabularies; and how a set of FHIR instance data can be represented in RDF.

TIME: 2 PM Eastern / 11 AM Pacific
PRICE: Free to all attendees
DESCRIPTION: In our series on The Yosemite Project, we explore RDF as a data standard for health data. In this presentation, we will discuss with Claude Nanjo, a Software Architect at Cognitive Medical Systems, ways to expose clinical knowledge as OWL and RDF resources on the Web in order to promote greater convergence in the representation of health knowledge in the longer term. We will also explore how one might rally and coordinate the community to seed the Web with a core set of high-value resources and technologies that could greatly enhance health interoperability.

DATE: Wednesday, November 12, 2014
TIME: 2 PM Eastern / 11 AM Pacific
PRICE: Free to all attendees
DESCRIPTION: In our series on The Yosemite Project, we explore RDF as a data standard for health data.

Photo of David BoothSPEAKER: David Booth is a senior software architect at Hawaii Resource Group, LLC, using Semantic Web technology to make clinical healthcare data interoperable between diverse systems. He previously worked at KnowMED, using Semantic Web technology for healthcare quality-of-care and clinical outcomes measurement, and at PanGenX, applying Semantic Web technology to genomics in support of personalized medicine. Before that he worked on Cleveland Clinic’s SemanticDB project, which uses RDF and other semantic technologies to perform cardiovascular research. Prior to that was a software architect at HP Software, where his primary focus was emerging technologies. He was a W3C Fellow from 2002 to 2005, where he worked on Web Services standards before becoming involved in Semantic Web technology. He has been programming for many years using a variety of programming languages and operating systems. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from UCLA.

About the Webinar

Register Now!Semantic technology solves a concrete problem: sorting through large collections of unstructured data. With unstructured data expected to account for over 80 percent of all data within the next five years, the ability to target this data using semantic technology opens doors to better understand context and intent in search, and ultimately achieve greater visibility and relevant results. This presentation will showcase how semantic technologies can understand article content and select contextually relevant adverts to most effectively monetize content for advertisers and publishers.

  • Discover how semantic technology helps thousands of advertisers reach their audience in a meaningful way, and helps hundreds of online publishers monetize their content.
  • Learn how semantic technology reduces errors and time spent by marketers when defining their campaigns and yield better overall results.
  • Understand some of the challenges that come with semantic technologies and how to address them ahead of time.
  • Go behind the scenes with semantic and linguistic processing of web pages.

We hope you will join us on October 15, 2014 for this free webinar.

[NOTE: The first block of tickets for this webcast sold out within 24 hours. A new block is now available, but going fast! Additionally, the webcast will be recorded and archived here at SemanticWeb.com]

Description:
Semantic web and linked data technologies are built around a simple data model that makes it easy to share and combine data from disparate sources across the public internet or across silos on a private intranet. SPARQL is the query language standard from the W3C (the same standards body that brought us HTML, CSS, and XML) for querying this data. A variety of free and commercial software implementations have made it easy for people to get started with SPARQL and to incorporate it into applications that take advantage of the growing availability of linked data on the web.
