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).

10 minUS Core versions in relation to references in ODH versionsGenny/Lori

Lori is working to update ODH to refer to US Core (Version 5) Patient

But what about other IGs that adopt the ODH profiles if those IGs don't refer to the same version of the Patient profile? For example, death reporting

Will there be an issue with backwards compatibility?

Each IG may need to do an analysis to see if there is a conflict.

Need to take this to FMG for some advice

Genny discussed this briefly with Grahame at WGM

Genny will reach out to Grahame to ask how we get FMG to weigh in on what we need to do
