Fast-track to RIM

Course Description

This online course is designed to provide participants with the material, instruction, real-world examples, and hands-on workshops in 3 hours.

RIM is an ISO-registered standard (ISO/HL7 21731). Developed using UML concepts, it provides a foundation for modeling healthcare information. RIM has been used as a foundation for messaging and clinical documentation standards such as HL7 v3, FHIR, CDA, etc.


Students will understand how it was built, how RIM is used in the real world, how to develop information models using RIM; and it prepares the participants for taking an HL7 RIM Certification test.

Participants gain solid proficiency in reading and interpreting health information models; developing information models to support business requirements; or design systems and interfaces that are based on RIM models such as CDA, CCD, or generic HL7 v3 RMIMs.


Product Managers, Business Analysts, and architects will learn how to define requirements using RIM modeling techniques.  Developers will learn how to use RIM based artifacts to develop interfaces.  Testers will learn how to build test cases and scenarios for RIM based interfaces.
