About the Webinar

In our series on The Yosemite Project, we explore RDF as a data standard for health data. In this presentation, we hear from Joshua Mandel, a physician and software engineer affiliated with Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Josh 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.
