Complex Cross-Group Projects Work Group

Steering Division: Organizational Support



This Work Group facilitates and manages complex projects that cross multiple Work Groups and where either it is impossible to identify a single work group sponsor or where no existing Work Group would be considered a natural home for the project.



The Work Group provides a place for projects that cross multiple Work Groups to be managed and to provide communication and coordination to all the Work Groups in the organization.  The Work Group will facilitate coordination with Work Groups affected by its projects and will provide updates back to those Work Groups.  In certain instances the Work Group may operate under the oversight of a separate committee such as the TSC, the International Council or the US Realm Steering Committee.


Work Products and Contributions to HL7 Processes

This Work Group will manage projects that intend to ballot products that cut across many HL7 Work Groups and Steering Divisions.  In the context of these projects, it will provide a place for coordination amongst multiple workgroups.  Projects may only be considered by this Work Group with the advance approval of the TSC.


Formal Relationships With Other HL7 Groups

By its mission, this Work Group has a formal relationship with all of the Work Groups in the Administrative Steering Division, the Clinical Steering Division, and the Infrastructure Steering Division.  It also has a relationship with the TSC, the International Council and the US Realm Steering Committee who may assign projects to this group as the need arises.


Formal Relationship With Groups Outside of HL7

This Work Group does not currently have formal relationships with groups outside of HL7.
