Tal Golesworthy to give Keynote at HL7 FHIR DevDays International 2022

On 7 June 2022, Tal Golesworthy will present a keynote at HL7® FHIR® DevDays International 2022 in Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

In ‘Patient data: enabling personalised surgery’, Tal will argue that patients with appropriate technical and professional skills can contribute to medical development  and change patient treatments and outcomes IF they are granted access to and taken seriously by the world of medicine. Tal’s journey through the PEARS project illustrates what can be achieved if clinicians’ minds are opened to new ways of processing patient data.

Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) is the global industry standard for passing healthcare data between systems and the DevDays International provides a plethora of content for both developers and non-coders, for FHIR starters and FHIR experts alike.
