Individual or Organizational Membership: Which is Right for You?
We are encouraging our members to review their membership at this time to make sure they are in the appropriate category and are able to take full advantage of all the benefits HL7 membership has to offer.
Individual memberships are geared to those with a personal interest in the standard and should not reflect an affiliation to an organization or employer. Organizational memberships include benefits crucial to those who rely on the standard as part of their business plan -- the most critical of these being the right to distribute the standard to clients (i.e., as part of technical documentation or proposals) or to distribute the standard within their organization.
Please also see our IP Policy for more information about how individuals and organizations can use the standards.
