HL7 delivers healthcare interoperability standards

Call for Nominations for Co-Chair Elections at the May WGM

18 February 2010

Running for co-chair of a work group is an excellent way to get a real understanding of how health informatics is moving, and what the new trends are. Being responsible for managing the agenda of a committee is an important role, and provides an opportunity to meet and deal with people from around the world who share your interest in health informatics, outside of the usual contractual or employment relationships. It entails a commitment to attend the Working Group Meetings - which are in any case a good networking opportunity.

HL7 UK Members regularly attend Working Group Meetings and also play an important role within the Technical Committees and Special Interest Groups.


The following HL7 work groups will be conducting co-chair elections at the HL7 working group meeting May 16-21, 2010 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The deadline for nominations is COB, Friday, March 19, 2010. Nominations submitted after the deadline will not be accepted; however, write-ins will be accepted during the May WGM.
