Program Time
: Approximately 90 minutes each webinar

Health Level Seven’s Version 3 is employed worldwide to solve interoperability problems via V3 messaging and V3 structured documents such as CDA. Fundamental to all V3 objects is their underlying information model – the Reference Information Model. Applications and APIs and databases are also built directly employing the RIM standard. The purpose of this webinar is to review RIM concepts as part of a student’s preparation to sit for the V3 RIM Specialist certification test for RIM model 2.36 as documented in V3 Normative Edition 2012. It should be noted that the class alone will not be enough to pass the test. Self-study of the RIM materials is strongly recommended.

  • Anyone planning to take the V3 RIM Specialist certification test.
