Mission

The mission of the Financial Management Work Group (FM) is to provide HL7 artifacts to support:

  • The costing, financial transactions and billing which occur within a healthcare provider
  • The eligibility, enrollment, authorizations, claims and payments, and contractual arrangements, which occur between and among healthcare providers, insurers, and patients
  • Reporting and notification between insurers, payers, subscribers, beneficiaries, and guarantors.

Artifacts may include concepts such as:

  • Administration support
  • Contracting
  • Self-pay
  • Billing
  • Claims
  • Payment
  • Reporting

Charter

FM will produce normative standards for financial event messages and content models.  Will work closely with appropriate Work Groups to coordinate and consolidate references to financial instruments in all HL7 artifacts. FM will monitor complementary financial and administrative information interchange standards other than HL7, and attempt to harmonize message content and vocabularies where possible.
