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).

WHO Guidelines on the NLM/NCBI Bookshelf
The NCBI Bookshelf catalogs WHO Guidelines
National Library of Medicine, NCBI is a congressionally mandated center within NLM, National Computable Biomedical Informatics, manages PubMed and GenBank
OAI-PMH Service - API service used by the library community
Use Dublin-Core metadata to index
NCBI has an agreement with WHO to ingest guidelines into Bookshelf using this API
PDF Digitized to BITS XML (JATS - Journal Article Tag Set)
Biggest challenge is how to do sub-guideline versioning
One potential solution is DITA
Note that IDs in this example are WHO-specific, approach should be scalable to any content producer
Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) - Any agency that receives federal funding has to have a public access policy, NIH is updating theirs now, these updates will likely include references to persistent identifiers. Guidelines need a consistent approach to identifying what components get PIDs and how they get assigned
