Join HL7

Ready to become a Health Professional member?

Or see below for pricing information and membership benefits.

As HL7 members, patient care providers can contribute to clinical requirements for HL7 standards and learn about emerging interoperability trends in an increasingly patient-centered healthcare system.

Health Professional members receive discounts on HL7 meetings, as well as access to HL7 standards according to our IP Policy.

Who Can Join?

The Health Professionals membership is open to physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other licensed individuals who meet either of the following conditions:

  • Currently work for a healthcare organization and are directly engaged in providing patient care
  • Have at least ten years of direct patient care experience and currently work for a healthcare organization in an administrative role

(Application information is subject to verification by HL7.)


Health Professional members may not use, copy, or distribute HL7 standards for any purpose other than personal participation in the maintenance and development of HL7 standards.

This is a non-voting membership. Health Professionals who wish to vote on and use the HL7 standards, participate in governance elections, or hold leadership roles (such as co-chairs) should join HL7 under the appropriate full membership category.


$100 USD per year

Please note: all HL7 memberships are non-refundable.
