The mission of the Organizational Support Services Steering Division (OSSD) (formerly Technical & Support Services Steering Division) is to develop projects and products providing direct support to the work groups, thereby enabling them to function efficiently. The following work groups make up the OSSD:


The OSSD meets periodically to provide work group status reports, coordinate projects where applicable, and discuss topics of mutual interest.  The OSSD was originally comprised of committees that had been Board appointed but during the reorganization of HL7 in 2008, most were restructured as work groups with open membership and at elected leadership.  Because these groups were not members of the previous TSC, they had no voice in TSC decisions, even though they were working alongside the volunteers in the other groups. Thus, the addition of these committees to a Steering Division provides those volunteers equal voice (and responsibilities) in the TSC affairs.

Work Products and Contributions to HL7 Processes

OSSD does not develop HL7 artifacts directly, but provides support services to other work groups and to the membership in their development of HL7 protocol specifications and other HL7 operations and processes.
