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).

20 minCMS RFI for National Directory of Healthcare Providers and ServicesDanny Wise

2022 CMS RFI National Healthcare Directory - Comment Template - Oct 19 FINAL.docx

Due date is December 6th

Public Health would likely be represented (PH has providers that would need to be included) within the NDH as well as being a consumer of data within the NDH

Licensing activities could be a user too

Having a standard for a directory may be just as important as having a singular national directory

Please review and come to next week's call with any comments you'd like the WG to consider

10 minV3 Immunization Messaging IG expiring normativeDanny Wise
  • Version 3 normative standard (this is not the v2.8.2 Implementation Guide we have published)
  • Option to withdraw or reaffirm for another 5 years
  • As far as the co-chairs have been able to ascertain, it's mostly used in Canada
    • Joginder Madra confirmed it's use in Alberta
    • Ron Parker (HL7 Canada) doesn't have any concern with going forward with a withdrawal
      • No known need for updates
  • If there is need to continue use (or update), then we should reaffirm
  • If withdrawn, existing implementations can continue, it's mostly an admission that the standard won't be updated going forward
  • HL7 doesn't really have the machinery to maintain V3
  • Future work will like focus on either v2 or FHIR
  • Motion: to proceed with withdrawing the v3 Immunization Messaging document (Craig Newman/AbdulMalik Shakir: 15-0-2)
