Welcome to the Home of the Policy Advisory Committeee in Confluence! 


The Policy Advisory Committee (PAC) shall consist of a chair appointed with the concurrence of the Board and at least three (3) other members. The CEO shall be an ex-officio member. The chair may serve for two years starting on the date of appointment and may be appointed to a second two year term. It is the prerogative of an incoming HL7 Chair to either allow the incumbent chair to continue his or her term or to appoint another individual to chair this committee.


The PAC shall undertake policy and regulatory review and analysis within the health information technology (HIT) sector with the objective of identifying emerging issues, trends, and problems related to either policy or standards. Topics in scope include HIT legislation, regulation, contracts and contract negotiations, industry consensus, and international coordination. The PAC shall provide options and recommendations to the Executive Committee (EC) for the resolution of such issues and problems in the form of briefing notes, background documents, discussion papers, and position papers. Any statements for public release developed from such presentations shall be issued by the EC, which may designate an individual to present such statements. The PAC shall review and comment on any statements, written or oral, espoused as representing an HL7 position prior to the submission of such statements to the Executive Committee for approval.
