Mission and Charter

Mission

The Pharmacy Work Group (WG) will assure that the HL7 content concerning medication-related information – e.g. in processes such as prescribing/ordering, dispensing/supplying, and administering/using medication - addresses all of the requirements of stakeholders. The Pharmacy WG will also create and maintain a set of artifacts to support the processes above.  

Charter

This WG provides a forum for all stakeholders concerned with clinical content related to medication information. The WG will also work with and provide medication content guidance/recommendations to other WGs. The Pharmacy WG will take into account the experience of groups outside of HL7 e.g. Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) Pharmacy and ISO TC215 Work Group 6. Stakeholders include pharmacists, physicians and other clinicians, healthcare technology experts, vendors, regulators, healthcare strategic organizations e.g. Dutch National ICT Institute for Healthcare (Nictiz), Office of the National Coordinator (ONC), Canada Health Infoway, and Australia’s National eHealth Transition Authority (NeHTA).

The Work Group will develop specifications using the principles and language of the Services Aware Interoperability Framework (SAIF) Canonical Definition (CD).
