The RDF for Semantic Interoperability group (or RDF group) is a sub-group of the HL7 ITS work group and a joint collaboration with the W3C Healthcare and Life Sciences group on Clinical Observations Interoperability to facilitate the use of RDF as a common semantic foundation for healthcare information interoperability.

How to Participate

Anyone may join this group simply by participating in the work, which is conducted mainly on the public HL7 and W3C mailing lists listed below and on a weekly teleconference. You are encouraged to become an HL7 member, but not required unless you wish to take a leadership role in an HL7 group, such as becoming a co-chair. You are also encouraged to have your organization become a W3C member, but not required. See benefits of W3C membership.

  • Utility on FHIR RDF that would motivate mapping of FHIR XML to FHIR RDF (EricP)

Next Steps

  • EricP will present C-CDA example on Dec 23.
  • Waiting for Guoqian for broader discussion of use cases.

PhUSE-FDA project (formerly CDISC2RDF)

Champions: Kerstin_Forsberg, Ingeborg, Tim Williams, (and Charlie Mead?)

Next Steps
