What is a Working Group Meeting?

HL7 International working group meetings (WGMs) are held three times per year at varying locations and serve two important purposes:

  1. To provide HL7 International work groups a chance to meet face to face to work on the standards as well as the opportunity to network with industry leaders from around the world.
  2. To provide an invaluable educational resource for the healthcare IT community.

Standards Development

More than 40 HL7 work groups are dedicated to specialized areas of interest such as Mobile Health and Electronic Health Records. These work groups are directly responsible for the content of the standards and spend much of their time at the WGMs hard at work on standards development.

Attending a WGM can be a great way to keep up-to-date on what is happening in a particular area, and everyone attending an HL7 WGM is invited to attend any of the work groups.


Numerous educational opportunities are offered at most WGMs. Sessions cover a full range of HL7-specific topics such as clinical genomics, Clinical Document Architecture (CDA®), Fast Healthcare Interoperability Standards (FHIR®), among others. Educational sessions also include industry topics such as Electronic Health Records and standards for interoperability. The full listing of tutorials for each WGM will be published on the event registration page.

Interested in attending but short on funds?

Apply for the The Woody Beeler Memorial Scholarship for Healthcare Interoperability. Scholarships are awarded annually to partially cover travel, accommodation and registration expenses enabling at least one individual to participate in an HL7 WGM. Funding will be sufficient to enable attendance but will require a meaningful and achievable contribution by the award recipient. Awards are anticipated to be $1500-2500 USD per WGM, depending on meeting and award recipient location. Information about the next application period will be posted soon. Learn more.
