Antitrust Statement

Professional Associations, such as HL7, which bring together competing entities are subject to strict 
scrutiny under applicable antitrust laws. HL7 recognizes that the antitrust laws were enacted to promote 
fairness in competition and, as such, supports laws against monopoly and restraints of trade and their 
enforcement. Each individual participating in HL7 meetings and conferences, regardless of venue, is 
responsible for knowing the contents of and adhering to the HL7 Antitrust Policy as stated in §05.01 of 
the Governance and Operations Manual (GOM).

Minutes Approval


  • Recorded a track intro for the connectathon
  • Discussion about IPS population from Brian 
    • Proposal is to perform standard searches against an IPS treating it as though it's a server
      • Could possibly use the populate operation for 'light' clients that can do that
      • Could theoretically also use the 'in-memory' FHIR server Gino's defined (has full search capability) - FHIR Candle
    • Alternatives raised:
      • Write a transform that can convert regular search queries and turn them into "mostly equivalent" FHIRPath expressions that could then be used by simpler clients
      • Have authors manually write
  • Discussed timing of next release
    • Lloyd raised the possibility that if the obligation stuff isn't ready in time we might not be able to make the January ballot cycle.  He proposed that we could potentially ballot in May with a dual-version release (R4 + R5), though that will also take some tooling work
    • Brian thinks that's too long
    • Discussion of whether we could do a 3.1 STU update without a ballot
    • Lloyd will look at the trackers we've agreed to (applied or not) as well as what's outstanding to see if that scope might qualify for a non-ballot release
