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)

Attachment IG: HL7 CDA® R2 Attachment Implementation Guide: Exchange of C-CDA Based Documents, Release 2
US Realm - discuss next steps for publication

 No formal steps have been taken yet towards publishing the Attachment IG. Russ polished the content and  posted on Confluence, as well as drafted a publication request for us to review:


publication draft and the fully reconciled spreadsheet on the confluence page:



  1. Review and vote on the “Product Brief” in the publication request (it’s a copy of what was previously published for the guide)
  2. Set expectations that we’ll ask for formal publication approval for the IG at our next meeting.
Reviewed publication request.  Since the group was small, it was agreed that a vote would be taken on 12/07/21 call.   It was difficult locating the current document in Confluence.
Open FloorHappy Thanksgiving to all....
