In July 2021, I have an opportunity to be a guest lecturer about FHIR for the Master’s Program in Data Science for Healthcare and Clinical Informatics at Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University. It’s an international program, so I have to teach in English. This part (this FHIR tutorial series) is one of the three parts of our “Interoperability and Health Data Standards” course.
Disclaimer: I have an opportunity to teach in this program, not because I’m FHIR expert. But in my country, there are not many people who know about FHIR either. And the content of the course is pretty basic FHIR knowledge.
From my past experience teaching FHIR, students would feel understood when they listened to the lecture. But they often found that it was difficult to do the hands-on workshop. And the workshop is the one that took time the most. So in this class, because it’s an online class due to the COVID-19 situation, I decided to move all the lectures into an online video format. Then I spent all the time of the live session to be a 3-part workshop.
In the end, I ended up creating 10-hour long videos as a lecture. I think it might be good if the public can access this content as well. Maybe it can help to foster the adoption of the standard here on in other countries.
I’m sorry that my English accent might be a bit difficult to understand, and also sorry that I talked a bit slow. I’ll try to improve on the next occasion. I have created subtitles for the first two videos, and I’ll gradually create for the remaining ones.
Finally, I would like to thank Dr. Boonchai Kijsanayotin. He is my boss at Thai Health Information Standards Development Center (THIS). Thanks for inviting me to be a guest-lecturer and allow me to take time to create this course. Thank Mr. Natdanai Thaipipat for the presentation slides that inspired me a lot. Thanks to THIS, Standard and Interoperability Lab Thailand (SIL-TH) and the team, and Ramathibodi Hospital.
