HL7 FHIR Security & Privacy tutorial - Vegas

 HL7 FHIR Security & Privacy

The HL7 FHIR Security & Privacy classroom tutorial describes how to protect a FHIR server (through access control and authorization), how to document what permissions a user has granted (consent), how to enable appropriate access by apps and users and how to keep records about what events have been performed (audit logging and provenance).

actual Classroom : January 17 afternoon at the HL7 Workgroup meeting in Vegas

This will be a refreshed version of the Tutorial I have given mostly annually to HL7. Each year I do update and enrich the content. More, if you ask questions.

My slides are freely available on google slides at this easy to type address Each time I give the tutorial I update these master slides. So, each time you go there you will see the latest set of slides. Some slides do have notes, and there is additional detail in slides that I don't cover during the tutorial.
