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).

NOTE: This attendance applies if you are present at the related meeting/call, regardless if you have signed a different attendance for your WG.

MethodologyV2.9.1 ballot reconciliation / GH ballot

V2-25412 / V2-25417



V2-25412 - Getting issue details... STATUS  

  • The meaning of PID-8 is not being changed for existing integrations
    • Frank proposed providing guidance on not using PID-8 any further (perhaps as far as deprecating it and creating a "sex for administrative room assignment" field in PV1
  • New trading partners should be clear on the meaning of PID-8 or use the new segments for clarity or if multiple concepts need to be conveyed
  • We updated the proposed disposition but no motion to pass it was made
    • Need to return to this issue on a future call

Harmonization Chapter 2C to THO content
  • At the last WGM, we agreed that there is a single source of truth for v2 vocab
    • We currently have two apparently versions - Chapter 2C and THO
    • We agreed to attempt to harmonize these two
      • Did not include any explicit goal of them being "perfect", just in sync
      • Ideally, they will be in sync by the time v2.9.1 is published
  • Michael has done a comparison of the two
    • There are differences
    • Some need SME input
  • What is the path forward?
    • If 2C changes are needed, where is that done? In the database or in the Word document by hand?
  • Michael proposals that we correct what is in 2C now and then work with TSMG to get the content of 2C in THO
