SWOT

Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats for the AID "user group"

Strengths

  • Active members with actual experience of HL7 implementations
  • Active members with a passion for health information technology
  • Deep understanding of HL7 standards and healthcare IT implementations

Weaknesses

  • Inbalance in ability to share information due to Intellectual Property issues (e.g. users that are unable to share because of company IP issues)
  • Quite a few active contributors to the deliverables don't take part in WGMs (those are too much geared towards standards developers)

Opportunities

  • Has the ability to show the power of HL7 standards
  • Has the capability to ease implementations of HL7 standards (best practices, reference implementation)
  • Free IP, and Grassroots adoption of FHIR, will expand our audience.

Threats

  • Stifling effect of Intellectual Property issues preventing participation by some parties
  • AID not seen as an active WG because few implementers attend WGMs.
  • Risk that commercial parties use AID as a marketing platform for tools.
