Antitrust Statement

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).

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.

Peter Gunter, the co-chair, could not log onto Zoom.  The meeting was canceled since there were no co-chairs present.  See note below regarding presentation by Viet Nguyen.

2023May 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:

Update CDex

Viet Nguyen socialization of Questionnaire

We gained approval to move forward with building out example sets with Clinical Data Exchange CDex last week at DV member meeting.  I’m introducing all of you to additional PMO, Crystal Kallem, our partner and Project Manager for DV use case work, and our two existing CDex leads, Christol Green and Durwin Day. Yan Heras is our deputy tech director on this use case and will be helping to define how and where we capture examples.

You are here because have either expressed interest, or offered up connections to MD/provider support on this work in the past.  The group is slowly getting organized, so want to make sure you know each other, so you can join calls/send colleagues our way in the coming weeks.

Team, Drs. Waldren, Suarez, Lane and Giannulli are active members of Da Vinci’s Clinical Advisory as well as each seen as thought leaders/drivers for clinical data exchange in the industry. Their collective practical knowledge here is priceless.
