This group supports the HL7 mission to create and promote IT standards by defining peri-operative data standards pertinent to anesthesiology that enhance anesthesia and national peri-operative performance measurement. This will be accomplished by:

  • Promoting and developing anesthetic specificity in data standards
  • Augmenting the HL7 model for continuous quality improvement in anesthetic patient care
  • Serving as model for representing specialty interests in HL7


Work Products and Contributions to HL7 Processes

  • Identify critical data standards specific to anesthesiology necessary for standardized quality and outcomes reporting and measuring
  • Identify and promote required terminology to support reporting and measurement
  • Identify and promote requirements for standardized peri-operative anesthesia records to facilitate exchange and aggregation of peri-operative data
  • Coordinate and cooperate with other groups interested in using anesthesia data standards
  • Enable and promote use of these standards nationally and internationally
  • Identify appropriate anesthesia constraints against existing HL7 artifacts.

Formal Relationships With Other HL7 Groups

The Anesthesia Work Group works closely with Health Care Devices and coordinates with other workgroups such as Patient Care and Structured Documents as necessary

Formal Relationship With Groups Outside of HL7

This Work Group will include representation from the existing International Organization for Terminology in Anesthesia (IOTA), the Anesthetic Patient Safety Foundation (APSF)Data Dictionary Task Force (DDTF) and will work with other groups interested in anesthesia and peri-operative data standards and performance measurement. These liaisons will be with the approval of the HL7 Board in accordance with Policy and Procedures.
