Integration Paradigm




The goal is to provide a sound overall technical experience of HL7. The learning objectives include learning how to confront a healthcare interoperability project, how to read the main HL7 standards, the need for controlled vocabularies (terminology), master files and entity registers, how to read and write V2.X and V3 messages and CDA R2 documents.


The course is organised hierarchically with 4 levels: For this course the levels are: (1) leadership and authors, based in Argentina; (2) Four groups of up to 40 students with a tutor in charge (3) Sixteen specific tutor groups of about 10 students, and (4) about 160 individual students. The system has worked well in giving each person (students and tutors) back-up support in depth. This is one of the reasons why the drop-out rate has been very low for a course of this type.

One of the best features of the course is the interactive e-learning community for all students and instructors, which has active discussion forums and (at least) weekly contact with your tutor.

Business Case (Intended Use, Customers)


The goal of the ELC is to create a cost effective and affordable way to give opportunity for healthcare IT professionals, globally, to learn about HL7 standards so that they can use them in their implementations. The ELC provides an additional venue for learning about HL7 standards, in addition to the existing tutorials at HL7 WG meetings, Education Summits and Affiliates' education programs. Additionally it allows HL7 to reach out to countries with limited HL7 education available and therefore helps bring them into the HL7 community.
