Saffron Labs Prepared to Lead Demonstration of Gravity Project’s Social Determinants of Health Data Exchange IG at HL7 Connectathon

by | Jan 11, 2023

At the HL7 FHIR Connectathon 32 (Henderson, Nevada, January 14-15, 2023) the Saffron Labs Team will test and demonstrate how its platform and out-of-the-box applications meet the specifications of the Social Determinants of Health Data Exchange Implementation Guide (IG).

HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) Connectathons feature hands-on FHIR development and testing.

Testing SDOH

Implementers and developers come together to hold technical discussions that advance the FHIR specification, develop FHIR-based solutions, and exchange data with other FHIR interfaces. Aaron Seib, who directs Saffron Labs and is Co-Chair of the Gravity Project, will lead the Saffron Team in sharing and testing how Saffron products provide a solution for the use cases under review.

“We are very excited to be back in-person at the connectathon testing the standards-based SDOH capabability that will change how we think about and use health information.”
