Plans for the future?
HL7-DK is looking at changing the affiliate structure and thereby getting more support from Danish stakeholders. HL7-DK wants to contribute to a common understanding and use of FHIR in the Danish and Nordic market, developed in collaboration and common understanding with Danish authorities. We want to increase awareness of the use of FHIR, among developers and municipalities and share our process with HL7 International. The first national FHIR Implementation Guides are expected to be published within 2020.
