What is a Working Group Meeting?

HL7 International working group meetings are held three times per year at varying locations. These working group meetings serve two important purposes:

  1. They give the 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. They provide an invaluable educational resource for the healthcare IT community.

Standards Development

HL7 International has more than 40 work groups dedicated to specialized areas of interest such as Orders and Observations and Electronic Health Records. These work groups are directly responsible for the content of the standards and spend much of their time at the working group meetings hard at work on standards development. Attending a working group meeting can be a great way to get a handle on what is going on in a particular area, and everyone attending an HL7 International working group meeting is invited to attend any of the working group meetings.

Educational Sessions

This working group meeting will offer numerous educational opportunities. Sessions will cover a full range of HL7-specific topics such as Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®), Version 2.x Implementation, Version 3, and the Clinical Document Architecture (CDA®), among others. Educational sessions also branch out to cover general interest industry topics such as genomics, interoperability, and vocabulary terminology.

Schedule Overview

General Sessions are Monday – Thursday, 8:00 – 8:45 am.
Tutorials are held Monday – Thursday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm.
Work Groups meet Monday, 1:45 pm – 5:00 pm; Tuesday – Thursday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm; and Friday, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm.

Please Book Your Room at the HL7 International Meeting Hotel

HL7 International urges all meeting attendees to secure their hotel reservations at the HL7 International Working Group Meeting Host Hotel. The hotel has been contracted to provide the best rate and service to our HL7 International meeting attendees, including the vast number of meeting rooms that HL7 International uses. In order to secure the required meeting space, HL7 International has a contractual obligation to fill its sleeping room block. If you make reservations at a different hotel, HL7 International risks falling short on its obligation, which translates to HL7 International paying additional costs (penalties) to the hotel. Therefore, to help avoid penalties, we urge you to book your hotel room at our host hotel. Thank you!
