Improve the quality and interoperability of healthcare systems through shared semantically interoperable  clinical and administrative information models, APIs, and processes.


  • Use formal information modeling principles to enhance the consistency and semantic interoperability of HL7 standards.
  • Work towards improving the process for the creation of implementation guides, profiles, and extensions.
  • Investigate and suggest ways that HL7 standards can move closer to semantic interoperability.

Work Products and Contributions to HL7 Processes

  • Work collaboratively with other HL7 workgroups to voluntarily
    • reduce unnecessary redundancy in FHIR implementation guides and profiles.
    • create helpful resources such as style guides and templates for the development of new implementation guides.
    • create a preferred set of semantically interoperable profiles that align and are consistent across use cases, domains, and diverse communities of interest.
  • Volunteer to act as terminology and publishing facilitators for other workgroups.
  • Offer guidance and support to other workgroups relative to best practices for information modeling and interoperability.
