ANSI Anti-Trust Policy:  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).

Workflow Topics - NOTE - picked up topics from 1/6/2023

  • IG work Clinical Order Workflow (COW)
    1. Jose Costa-Teixeira and Robert Hausam will work together on details over the next two weeks to get the IG formatted and moved into the HL7 repo
    2. Need for cross-walk between regulatory requirements and the IG, so "best practices" or "best behavior" is recommended to implementors. 
    3. IG needs to help define the use/boundaries between order status, task status, etc. (glossary) 
    4. How does this square with IHE profiles?
