Issues/Concerns

Issues/Concerns

  • HL7 International not wishing to compete with Affiliates
  • What is the qualification of the organizations who provide training? To become a partner and to remain a partner
    • We need to develop core competencies on evaluation of “teachers”
  • HL7 Code of conduct that precludes endorsement of one member over another
  • Competition with HL7 International offerings
  • Dilution of the HL7 brand
  • Risk of saturation of market with HL7 sanctioned training
  • Need to understand how this is different from what is happening today
  • Do we have the time to do the evaluations in a volunteer organization?
  • Affiliate agreement just signed and would need to be changed/amended
  • There may be an issue for some of the HL7 International teachers in providing training some countries

Opportunities

  • Is there an opportunity for partners to develop material where we do not have resources/time?

Benefits

  • Formalizes a framework for what we are currently doing
  • Additional revenue
  • Offers an opportunity for management of the HL7 brand
