Executive Summary

Getting Started

Are you new to CIMI or just want to get oriented with our work? If so, please visit our Getting Started Guide.






  • To encourage Information Model consistency, traceability and reuse:
    • CIMI collaborates with other workgroups and organizations, which are governed apart from HL7.
    • These projects are voluntarily being harmonized using CIMI Principles and Reference Models (e.g., PC, CQI, CDS, EHR, HSPC, etc.).
    • Externally-developed CIMI-compliant information-models can be donated to HL7 for
      • HL7 configuration management, peer review and standardization.

IIM&T References

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

 <<Theodore Roosevelt, Apr 23, 1910, Sorbonne, Paris, France>>
