Mission

To identify, organize and maintain coded vocabulary terms used in HL7 information structures, provide clear documented guidelines on the principles of vocabulary content and structure to support the retention of meaning over time, and to maintain the HL7 Vocabulary Model and guidance of the use of Vocabulary in HL7 Standards.

Vocabulary Maintenance at HL7 after Q2 2020 will be done through the new Unified Terminology Governance (UTG) process.  The detailed information for user on-boarding, harmonization tools and workflow processes, and education an documentation materials can be found HERE.

HL7 Terminology Authority (HTA)

The HL7 Terminology Authority, as a subcommittee of the Terminology Services Management Group (TSMG) is responsible for the creation, implementation, and management of HL7 processes involving external terminology management. The activities of the HTA are intended to complement maintenance of terminology that is used by HL7 protocol specifications.  HTA works through the TSMG to implement processes or polices that impact Working Groups. To contact the HTA, see additional details on the HTA Confluence page.
