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).

FHIR-39015 - Getting issue details... STATUS

  • Previously, the dose number and series number had a data type choice (either Positive Integer or String)
  • Leading up to R4, we made the change to just allow String
  • There has been no further information on how systems are systematically parsing this data today that would benefit from allowing the data type choice to remain
