Hi @Aasir Waseer, great question! There are a lot of great resources that cover these topics more generally, but I'll focus on resources that specifically cover the tools available in InterSystems IRIS:

  1. Video: Introduction to Analytics with InterSystems IRIS
  2. Path: Predicting Outcomes with IntegratedML in InterSystems IRIS
  3. Path: Build Data Models with Adaptive Analytics
  4. Path: Building with the InterSystems IRIS BI Analyzer
  5. Path: Delivering Data Visually with InterSystems Reports 

Good luck!

@A.R.N. H Hafeel , Following @Ben Spead 's question and assuming you want the latest and greatest w/ InterSystems IRIS (where you'll learn quite a bit that relates to Cache, but learn all the awesome new features of InterSystems IRIS too!), here's what I recommend:

Get an introduction

Note: You can also learn about all InterSystems products and how they compare, or learn about developing for healthcare applications with InterSystems IRIS for Health.

Learn the tools

Develop an Application

Optionally... expand your expertise!

Also, I'll mention that if you'd like a learning instance to play with, you can try out Learning Labs. Many courses include their own labs with starter files so you can focus on the task at hand (which I highly recommend using those labs when it's included).

​​​​​​​I hope that helps! 

Hi @Nagarjuna Podapati 
We're building out several learning programs based on roles that will better help in the future here. But the paths exist today! What are you trying to accomplish with IRIS for Health? Based on what you're trying to accomplish, we can recommend a personalized set of learning paths.

That said, if you're going to need to do most things or you're not sure yet, I recommend Getting Started with InterSystems (Health)

If you're looking to get started, you can also personalize which paths you take based on what you're trying to do:

Alternately, we have a several larger paths for implementation partners (or others who will be doing everything, paths are open to all) here:  InterSystems Implementation Partners Learning Paths

Hope this helps!

I've been playing with 1.5 and I've been very happy to see some UI updates that make it easier to set up services and routes such as being able to supply a REST endpoint in IRIS to quickly define a service. It may sound simple, but it has helped me to keep things straight (I used to confuse service and route - anyone else??) as well as streamlines this process. Glad to have these updates!

Hi all, yes, Extending SDA in HealthShare Applications is well underway but has been delayed due to other high priority projects. If you'd like to be a beta learner, we'd be happy to share what we have.  You can use the Feedback link on the right of learning.intersystems.com and mention me and we'll get you links to videos.

Some things you'll want to think about when using extended SDA in HealthShare apps:

  1. Are you trying to make the SDA extensions visible in the Clinical Viewer? If so, you'll need to use the Layout Editor.
  2. Do you need custom matching or validation logic when storing the streamlet? If so, you'll need a streamlet class that extends the existing streamlet class (or a new streamlet class if its custom SDA container) and in that you can customize the OnValidate() method or the MATCHINGS parameter.

I assume when you say you need to make them visible in Information Exchange, you are referring to showing extensions created using the extension classes in the Clinical Viewer?

Hi Conor,

The Clinical Viewer is only available if you have Information Exchange (Information Exchange includes Health Connect but if you have Health Connect, you don't necessary have Information Exchange). You can, however, still use the HealthShare FHIR respository to store FHIR resources, and then use REST calls to retrieve each resource. What exactly are you trying to do?

If you would like Information Exchange and the Clinical Viewer, I recommend reaching out to your Sales Engineer or Sales Rep.

I'm not exactly clear on which you intend to hold the new ID (context.newID maybe by the name?)

Regardless, you can also use the built-in pad method:

set context.NewID = ##class(Ens.Rule.FunctionSet).Pad(context.PatientID,-10,0)

where context.PatientID holds your original Patient ID. -10 means you want to prepend to be 10 characters, and "0" is the character you want prepended.

Great summary Tom. The only thing I would add is that FHIR actually supports several paradigms:

  • REST - As mentioned by Tom, allows you to retrieve or interact with one or multiple "FHIR resources". This allows you to work with smaller amounts of data (just what you need) instead of only allowing you to retrieve a large amount of data (for example, a CDA document). This is the most common and one of the greatest benefits of FHIR in our world where mobile devices may not want to get ALL data, but just what it needs at that time.
  • Document - You can still retrieve or interact with a large document of data such as a Patient Summary, similar to CDA.
  • Messages - This allows you to retrieve or interact with a message of data - FHIR resources bundled and includes an event that triggered it.
  • Services - This one is a bit more "vague" but it allows you to interact with FHIR data using a service-oriented model using custom code.

All are supported in HealthShare (both Health Connect and Information Exchange). In Health Connect, you will likely either consume FHIR and transform it to some other type, or consume some other type of data (CDA, HL7v2, etc.) and transform it to FHIR. In Information Exchange, an Edge Gateway can consume FHIR data as well to be used like any other data in the exchange.

From documentation: " Although Ensemble defines a class EnsLib.REST.Service , that is a subclass of %CSP.REST , we recommend that you not use this class because it provides an incomplete implementation of %CSP.REST ."

Instead, it's recommended that you create a REST class that extends %CSP.REST, and send data to a business service from the methods in this class.

We're really excited about this learning path as its something many of you have asked for! Have you taken the Building and Managing HL7 Productions classroom course but now need to create custom components? This is a great next step! As always, please let us know if you have other suggestions for courses, learning paths, or best practices that we can incorporate in future learning content.
