Meeting Minutes from Discussion

Decision Link

New HL7 Antitrust Policy

The HL7 Antitrust Policy was approved as part of the last GOM revision (section 05 Antitrust compliance). The following must be added to the minutes for each meeting.

              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 s05.01 of the Governance and Operations Manual (GOM)

    • Note: The way it's done in v2, and CDA, and FHIR are close but different enough so if recipients of data from those three sources will quickly find mapping issues
      • The suggested solution is to reference the Gravity IG for capture of race, ethnicity, and provenance
      • This data can be used to address disparities
      • Included in Gravity for early use
