Working Groups

HL7 Italy has a single Technical (Steering) Committee with coordination purposes. Technical work items are managed by dedicated project teams. Most of the recent projects were referring to the development of HL7 CDA R2 and HL7 FHIR IGs. In the past we had projects dedicated to the localization of HL7 V2 and HL7 V3 Messaging; and HL7/ISO EHR-S FM profiling.
