HL7 delivers healthcare interoperability standards

Connecting for Health taking part in the International HL7 Interoperability Conference 2007, New Zealand

Ken Lunn is a guest speaker at "Working Together: How Will HL7 v3.0 Contribute to Achieving Efficient Integrated Care" on Friday 31 August and Saturday 1 Sept 2007.

NHS CFH: Care Record Summary & Entries - Speaker: Dr Ken Lunn

NHS Connecting for Health has adopted HL7 V3 as a core standard for electronic communications for the National Programme. This includes a broad range of clinical applications including demographics, access control, electronic prescribing, and detailed clinical information exchange. We publish a localisation of the V3 standard, which suppliers use to define their interactions in a heterogeneous network of applications. Our current implementations involve the broadest HL7 V3 implementation worldwide, and in some areas the highest number of messages of a particular type. As well as applying the HL7 V3 standard, we are proactive in extending it, participating in HL7 working group meetings and sponsoring projects to further develop the standard. We also have taken a proactive stance with HL7 V3 tooling and have been the main instigators of the HL7 Tooling Collaborative.
