Welcome to the Confluence pages of the HL7 Human and Social Services Work Group


The mission is to provide a space for human services sector stakeholders and HL7 experts that focus on non-clinically oriented social risks and needs to define requirements, design, and validate HL7 Implementation Guides for interoperable human services data exchange.


Human services can encompass any interdisciplinary social service needed across the lifespan from birth to death, which include, but are not limited to: living needs, foster care coordination, case management, individual education plan (IEP) coordination, transportation issues, and food insecurity, among other social drivers of health. State agencies, regional entities, and local organizations often partner with federal agencies to address vulnerable populations that need services in the area of family law and child support, child welfare, education and early care, economic security, housing and homelessness, and hunger.[1] The primary focus of this work group encompasses the representation of human services interventions and observations.
