Mission

Mission

This group supports the HL7 mission to create and promote its standards by creating the procedures for creation and management of HL7 Templates. An HL7 template is a registered expression of a set of constraints on a balloted model, for e.g. for RIM-based standards like Clinical Document Architecture or Version 3 Messages or Version 2.xml artefacts. This group acts in alignment with FHIR resources and profiles.
