The Health Care Devices (DEV) working group seeks to facilitate integration of health care device information throughout the health care enterprise, enabling more efficient and accurate processing of device-related data and ultimately resulting in improved patient safety and quality of care.

To accomplish this integration, the working group is actively engaged in...

  • Establishing standardized version 2.x messaging profiles and version 3 constructs to support health care device interoperability at the enterprise level
  • Harmonizing device data models between HL7 and other organizations including ISO/IEEE 11073
  • Harmonizing and coordinating device terminology usage within HL7 components
  • Support revision and harmonization of the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI - formerly NCCLS) Point of Care Test (POCT) and laboratory automation standards
  • General coordination and harmonization between HL7 and other national and international organizations involved in health care device informatics and interoperability
