Stan­dards for syntax and seman­ti­cs of data elements, like HL7 FHIR and open­EHR, are well estab­lished in the health­ca­re deli­very and biome­di­cal rese­arch commu­ni­ty. Howe­ver, a lack of forma­liza­ti­on of busi­ness logic and data exch­an­ge proces­ses has hinde­red high through­put of infor­ma­ti­on and medi­cal data exch­an­ge between orga­niza­ti­ons. With the intro­duc­tion of the Data Sharing Frame­work (DSF), a stan­dar­di­zed infor­ma­ti­on and medi­cal data exch­an­ge plat­form has been estab­lished between Medi­cal Data Inte­gra­ti­on Centers at German univer­si­ty hospi­tals and other orga­niza­ti­ons. The frame­work requi­res defi­ni­ti­on of syntax, seman­ti­cs and proces­ses without prede­fi­ning how infor­ma­ti­on can flow between orga­niza­ti­ons and without the need for estab­lished roles of the parti­ci­pa­ting orga­niza­ti­ons. During the cour­se of this tuto­ri­al parti­ci­pan­ts will learn how to deve­lop a process plug­ins for the Data Sharing Frame­work. The tuto­ri­al will start with a gene­ral intro­duc­tion to the Data Sharing Frame­work as well as neces­sa­ry aspects of HL7 FHIR R4 and BPMN 2.0. The intro­duc­to­ry part will other­wi­se focus on how arbi­tra­ry commu­ni­ca­ti­on rela­ti­onships can be imple­men­ted using DSF process plug­ins. The majo­ri­ty of the tuto­ri­al will be hands on. Parti­ci­pan­ts have to bring their own laptops with instal­la­ti­ons of JDK 11, Docker and an IDE for Java appli­ca­ti­on deve­lo­p­ment. During the hands on part of the tuto­ri­al, parti­ci­pan­ts will deve­lop a DSF process plug­in, deploy this plug­in to a test­ing envi­ron­ment on their deve­lo­p­ment machi­ne and learn how to debug the process plug­in. Parti­ci­pan­ts are expec­ted to be fami­li­ar with deve­lo­ping Maven based Java appli­ca­ti­ons. The tuto­ri­al will be held in English and German.
