This is the home page for the Electric Services & Tooling Work Group. EST is a pilot work group for the functions being developed as part of the JIRACon Project. In this environment, attendance logs, meeting agendas and notes, and other work group functions are enabled to assist the work group participants in developing standards as well as necessary housekeeping functions for standards development organizations. Use JIRA to document issues, change requests, questions, and comments for documentation and resolution.


The Electronic Services and Tools Work Group supports the HL7 mission  by optimizing all forms of electronic interaction with HL7.org as well as the tools to facilitate the development, adoption and use of HL7 standards, according to the requirements of the HL7 Board and membership needs.  Electronic services do NOT comprise the interchange of HL7 messages or other specifications.

Electronic services comprise interactions with HL7.org either via the Internet or e-mail that includes, but are not limited to:

  • Hosting a web site [http://www.hl7.org] that provides useful information to the public while serving the needs of the HL7 members.
  • Maintaining list servers to facilitate member interaction.
  • Electronic tools necessary for production and publication of standards
  • Electronic tools that support implementers in understanding and applying standards
