  • Ensure that (appropriate) impacts on patients (positive and negative) are a consideration of the standards development process and are appropriately documented in as part of all relevant HL7 standards.
  • Provide an entry-point and give support to patients, caregivers and their advocates with respect to both influencing and leveraging HL7 standards.
  • Provide patient centric guidelines for standards developers and implementers
  • Assist in the standards development process by providing patient subject matter expertise
  • Define, assist and/or coordinate standards and implementation guides related to interoperability with patient-facing systems. These are some example use cases:
