In case you missed last Friday’s webinar, Yosemite Project Part 5 “Introduction and RDF Representation of FHIR for Clinical Data” delivered by Josh Mandel, the recording and slides are now available (and posted below). The webinar was co-produced by SemanticWeb.com and DATAVERSITY.net and runs for one hour, including a Q&A session with the audience that attended the live broadcast.

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.
About the Speaker
Josh Mandel is a physician and software engineer interested in improving clinical care through information technology. After earning an S.B. in computer science and electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an M.D. from the Tufts University School of Medicine, he joined the faculty of the Boston Children’s Hospital Informatics Program and Harvard Medical School, where he serves as lead architect of the SMART Project (http://smartplatforms.org). Josh has a special interest in tools and interfaces that support software developers who are new to the health domain.
