HL7 Australia to host international working group meeting in Sydney
HL7 Australia will host the January meeting of the “HL7 International” healthcare interoperability standards organisation in Sydney from 9 January to 14 January 2011.
The HL7 International Standards and Education Meeting will provide a forum for more than 50 work groups, committees and task forces designed to progress standards including HL7 version 2, HL7 version 3, Clinical Document Architecture, as well as standards available for electronic health record implementations.
In addition to the standards development meetings, a range of courses, tutorials and work-shops provide attendees with an opportunity to learn about the latest developments in electronic health records, clinical messaging and terminology, and to meet global experts and leaders in e-health.
Some of the education events targeted at the Australasian participants include an extensive three day “CDA Masterclass”, an introduction to openEHR and HL7 standards, a tutorial on “Data Standards for Clinical Trial Research”, and an “Academic Summer School” e-health program presented by globally recognised experts Ed Hammond and Bernd Blobel.
Special sessions are devoted to medicines and medical device regulatory activity, data exchange standards for clinical trial research and health information exchange in military and humanitarian operations.
An introduction to the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) initiative will also be presented at the event.
Klaus Veil, event organiser and immediate past Chair of HL7 Australia said, “We are delighted to welcome the e-health standards world to Sydney in January and are looking forward to an exciting and productive meeting. We are dedicated to making the Sydney WGM a success — both in terms of attendance and the quality of the sessions presented.”
