Welcome any newcomers 

  • Thank you for joining us!

  • Visit our NEWCOMERS page: Welcome Newcomers! It explains how to sign up to Confluence, our listserv, and the Zulip FHIR chat platform, and how our group works. 

  • We ask attendees to use their full names and include their company name (or N/A or advocate).  This will help avoid zoom bombers and help us with attendance and balanced voting.
Standing announce-mentsAntitrust Reminder

Professional Associations that bring together competing entities, such as HL7, 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 activities, 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). 

Ensure Zoom is recording

Note our WG's recording policy:

Patient Empowerment WG’s policy is to record many of its weekly calls and virtual working group sessions to help with minute taking.  If a recording will also be published, the participants will be asked in advance if that is OK.  

Zoom announces when recording is started.  Any participant can also ask the group or the co-chairs that we stop or pause recording in a specific meeting, and recording will be stopped or paused as requested.

Approval of Minutes

Approval of 2/23 Minutes.

(Our protocol: "The minutes have been posted on Confluence. Are there any corrections to the minutes? (pause) Hearing none, if there are no objections, the minutes are approved," )
