On management level the choice is often made for a system that is easy to explain.HL7 is impossible to explain in an easy way. HL7 needs to be translated in to software that they can understand. The HL7 documents should be written in the language of the employees.

Abstract HL7: eg observation.code

Programmer: can be captured in code eg vital parameters.

Users: daily language eg blood pressure

What is needed are people that make the translation of HL7 for ICT suppliers, users and managers. Managers do not understand what HL7v3 can do for them. A demonstration on a practical level could be useful.
