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).

5 minModeling and Methodology Work Group Dissolution/Merge RequestCraig
  1. Modeling and Methodology Work Group Dissolution/Merge Request - 5 min
    1. Looking to dissolve workgroup
    2. BC a lot of MnM work has to do with FHIR methodology, proposal is to have FHIR-I take over the FHIR mythology and data types work, and then anything else would be taken over by TSC.
    3. Discussion on OO call and some concerns expressed
      1. For practical purposes FHIR-I does most of this work anyway
      2. Concern was that take all of that other stuff to TSC is potentially problematic in that the TSC is not an open workgroup and decisions are not made the same way.
      3. Every product family has its own methodology workgroup. What there isn’t, is a place to discuss cross paradigm methodology issues. Maybe establish a place where broader issues can be discussed.
    4. Cross paradigm issues are huge. Tried to put ODH in all three places and add vocabulary and it was awful. Having a group to help deal with that would be really valuable.
    5. Will leave this for now and come back on a future call with AMS is here. Vote will remain open until November 6th.
