Mission and Charter
This group supports the HL7 mission to create and promote its standards by enabling the communication between interested parties of the clinical and personalized genomic data. The focus of clinical genomics work is the personalization (differences in individual's genome) of the genomic data and the linking to relevant clinical information.
This Work Group will facilitate the development of common standards for clinical research information management across a variety of organizations -- including national and international government agencies and regulatory bodies, private research efforts, and sponsored research -- and thus the availability of safe and effective therapies by improving the processes and efficiencies associated with regulated clinical research.
Work Products and Contributions to HL7 Processes
The Work Group will collect, review, develop and document clinical genomics use cases in order to determine what data needs to be exchanged. The WG will review existing genomics standards formats such as BSML (Bioinformatics Sequence Markup Language), MAGE-ML (Microarray and Gene Expression Markup Language), LSID (Life Science Identifier) and other. This group will recommend enhancements to and/or extensions of HL7's normative standards for exchange of information about clinical genomic orders and observations.
In addition, Clinical Genomics will seek to assure that related or supportive standards produced by other HL7 groups are robust enough to accommodate their use in both research and clinical care use. The group will also monitor information interchange standards developed outside HL7, and attempt harmonization of information content and representation of such standards with the HL7 content and representation.
Formal Relationships with Other HL7 Groups
This Work Group will coordinate with a large number of other Work Groups in order to accomplish its mission. Strongest relationships will be with:
- Orders and Observation
- Anatomic Pathology
- Image Integration
- Clinical Statement
- Clinical Decision Support
- Patient Care
- Electronic Health Records
- Modeling and Methodology
- Structured Documents
Formal Relationships with Groups Outside of HL7

Active CG Projects
GTR - CDA Implementation Guide for Genetic Testing Report
Clinical Sequencing Domain Analysis Model Project aka Clinical Sequencing Project
Domain Analysis Model, focusing on the clinical sequencing use case, balloted in September 2014 as Informative. This material will be combined with the Clinical Genomics Domain Information Model and balloted together in January 2014 as the Clinical Genomics Domain Analysis and Information Models. Ongoing project documentation on the main HL7 site
This project focuses on developing agreed-upon Clinical Genomics Domain Information Model(s) that are independent of any specific HL7 flavor of standards, and thus could serve as the source of semantics of all existing and future HL7 Clinical Genomics standards.
Clinical Genomics FHIR Profile for Genetic Observation
This work will extend the current FHIR Observation for support of reporting clinical genetic and genomic findings. Ongoing project documentation on the main HL7 site

HL7 CG_GV, R1
- HL7 Version 3 Standard: Genetic Variation, Release 1
- Last Ballot: Normative Ballot 2 - January 2009
HL7 IG CG_GENO, R1
- HL7 Version 3 Genotype, Release 1
- Last Ballot: DSTU Ballot 1 - January 2009
This approved DSTU spec has been deprecated and several portions of it are under normative ballot as CMETs (e.g., Genetic Variations CMET).
This component model (CMET) was under development as normative standard and passed ballot by the numbers but has not been published and the effort is frozen at this time.
This component model (CMET) was under development in 2011 but the effort is frozen at this time.
This specific work has rolled into other work group efforts.
