HL7 v3 Requirements

This page and its descendant links are an attempt to define the functional and non-functional requirements HL7 has for its standards development methodology, as well as how the methodology meets those requirements and how the requirements are manifested in HL7's metamodel, the MIF.

High-level organizational Requirements

HL7 must produce standards that improve interoperability in the sharing of healthcare information.

HL7 standards must be usable in healthcare exchanges in diverse communities throughout the world.

Support: HL7 is international in scope with affiliates from over 30 countries from 6 continents

HL7 v3 standards must provide both semantic and ??? interoperability

HL7 v3 standards should, as much as possible, be independent of an particular implementation technology and should be capable of making use of particular implementation technologies in a standardized way. Support: With HL7 v2, the organization experienced the challenges associated with a specification that was too tightly bound to a particular implementation technology. One of the objectives for HL7 v3 was to be technology independent.

HL7 specifications must be robust and internally consistent
