Welcome any newcomers
|Standing announce-ments||Antitrust 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.

Relationships with other HL7 Working Groups
Patient Empowerment strives to work with many other work groups within HL7 to amplify the patient voice. No formal relationships exist at this time. However, the group has or is currently collaborating with:
Patient Empowerment does not have formal relationships with any external group but is interested in collaboration to ensure that the patient perspective is considered in all standards work. The group is actively collaborating with PACIO and interested in the work being done in other groups to support workflows with the patient empowerment perspective such as Argonaut, CARIN Alliance, Vulcan, and Gravity, for example.
