Updated 2019 Sept WGM


  • Candor
  • Domain expertise
  • Knowledge pool
  • Willingness to respond to community requests
  • Diversity of background
  • Ongoing interest in the established standards
  • Strong commitment and agility to engage in new initiatives
  • Diligent and thorough in completing artifacts


  • Limited new interest in v3 standards
  • Lack of implementer feedback on v3 content
  • Limited bandwidth of active editors and contributors  
  • Availability of v2 subject matter experts


  • Implementer interest in advancing role-based registries (e.g., Australia, Argonauts, ONC)
  • Implementer interest in advancing FHIR encounter management
  • IHE interest in developing profiles based on PA FHIR content
  • Strong interest in FHIR PA resources from implementers
  • Interest for v2 PA implementations to migrate to FHIR
  • Collaboration with other standards communities IHE
  • Virtual meetings allow more people to participate in the WGM


  • Conformance profiles diverge from our published standards without providing us feedback (e.g., IHE, NHIN)
  • Lack of available human resources
  • Missing participation from the HL7 community may lead to the termination of projects
  • Poor handover of knowledge and follow-up (i.e. Statuses) from externally run projects
  • Dependencies with priorities with co-owned content with other workgroups in order to get our work completed.
  • The focus on the virtual meetings will make it challenging to develop and maintain relationships within the group
  • Difficulties to participate in the virtual working group, due to different timezones. This will put at high risk the international/global nature of the PA work within HL7
