WGM Agenda


News, Papers & Media

Categories & Scenarios

Informal descriptive scenarios are being developed in our tutorial material. These communicate concisely and vividly (to HL7 members and others with some health informatics background) using simplified accounts of real-life situations, how various aspects of mHealth are already delivering benefits in various healthcare situations across the world.

In future we expect to work with other WGs on scenarios and use cases in a more formal, analytic sense. For example, mHealth members may contribute to the development of a DAM, or provide ballot comments, from the point of view of mHealth concerns and opportunities.

The mHealth WG may develop its own DAMs, but only where the material would not have a natural home in a more subject-matter oriented WG.
