HL7 Antitrust Policy

Professional Associations, such as HL7, which bring together competing entities 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 meetings and conferences, 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).

Status state diagram review 

  • John reviewed the mapping between Med dispense status and BDP dispense status.  Suggestion was to send this to the list serve for input. 
    • review of mapping document.  
      • "ready for pickup" (in pharmacy) compares to "allocated" in BDP.
        • BDP "allocated" description is "ready for transport"   
      • "returned" - we don't have it, do we need it (returned after picked up).  usually these are wasted ... but can be reused in some cases. 
        • as opposed to "return to stock," which was "ready for pickup" and not received by patient.
      • pharmacy "completed" - BDP says "issued"
      • pharmacy "stopped" ("failed") - BDP uses "unfulfilled".
      • pharmacy "declined" ("not-done) - maybe BDP "returned" ("abandoned")
