The mission of the Anatomic Pathology WG is to develop and review implementation guides of HL7 standards and to enhance existing HL7 standards to support anatomic pathology use cases. It will work within HL7 as well as with external organizations to facilitate information interoperability in anatomic pathology, such as:

  • Tracking of anatomic pathology specimens
  • Structuring and coding of anatomic reports
  • Integrating and consolidating anatomic pathology data and other data into the medical record (e.g. integrated composite reports)
  • Ensuring consistency of anatomic pathology data and corresponding image association (includes both radiology and pathology imaging)
  • Reviewing previously defined terms that differ between organizations (e.g. What is a “specimen”)
  • Developing/reviewing value sets as needed (e.g. DICOM Specimen Embedding Media)
  • Collecting and sharing data from biorepositories/tissue banks
