HL7 ANSI Anti-Trust Policy

HL7 adheres to the ANSI Anti-Trust policy.  We should avoid sharing any information on this call that could be interpreted as anti-competitive.  If there are topics that you don’t normally speak about in other public settings, such as conferences or trade shows, then it’s probably best to save those topics for another time as this is a public call. If you have any questions you can refer to the GOM section 05.01 or consult your companies legal division.

2023 May Announcement of Formation of Consensus Group

  • Health Level Seven International® invites you to take part in the formation of consensus groups for balloting HL7 candidate standards and documents prior to the upcoming May 2023 ballot cycle. 
  • Recent changes to ANSI’s Essential Requirements eliminate Affiliates as well as Associations as an interest type for balloting (this does not affect membership type). Beginning with the September 2022 ballot cycle, if your organization falls under the Government/Professional Associations/Universities membership category, it will display as General Interest type for purposes of balloting. With the 2023 May ballot cycle, Affiliate voting members will also fall into this category.

  • Consensus Group Sign-Up Open Date: Monday, February 27, 2023
  • Consensus Group Sign-Up Close Date: Thursday, March 30, 2023

Important Note: Consensus group signup closes when ballot voting begins. 

Consensus group enrollment will be available from a date at least four weeks preceding the ballot vote opening date and will continue until the opening of voting.  While the exact dates are dependent upon individual ballot open and close dates, in general the consensus group signup period dates are as follows:

Management - Russ

PIE WG should prepare and approve an Errata Release to the IG to simply modify the cover page with the appropriate identifying version numbers so it’s easy to correlate with what’s in JIRA.

We definitely want to eliminate multiple uses of the word "Release" in the title.

If the document did get balloted once, then I also would be in favor of selecting v2.1.0 and doing the errata release to fix up the name and version of the document on the cover page.  That would be a bit more work but would result in a higher quality solution.  If PIE thinks this IG is going to start getting some good attention, it might be worth them doing an errata release to update the version info.

Just let us know what you (PIE) decides they would like to do, and CDA Management WG can update the Asset List based on your selected path forward.
