The Clinical Steering Division (CSD) (formerly Domain Experts Steering Division) mission is to define the requirements and solutions to support the needs for communicating information related to the creation, management, execution and quality of messages, services, resources and documents. The CSD shall promote the use of common structures in place and support the development of new structures to support the work of constituent work groups.

The following Work Groups make up the steering division:

  • Anesthesia
  • Biomedical Research and Regulation
  • Clinical Decision Support
  • Clinical Genomics
  • Clinical Interoperability Council
  • Clinical Quality Information
  • Community-Based Care and Privacy
  • Emergency Care
  • Health Care Devices
  • Learning Health Systems
  • Patient Care
  • Pharmacy
  • Public Health (formerly PHER)


The CSD through it’s work groups will develop specifications using the principles and language of the Services Aware Interoperability Framework (SAIF) Canonical Definition (CD) and the restrictions and specializations of the HL7 SAIF Implementation Guide (IG) to ensure traceability from Conceptual to Logical to Implementable specifications. When submitting artifacts or methodology to the HL7 SAIF IG the work groups of the DESD will develop this content in compliance with the principles and language of the SAIF CD.
