The mission of the Orders and Observation work group is to define information exchange capabilities to support the order/scheduling and clinical event management/reporting requirements between the stakeholders in the healthcare organization regarding patients, non-patients, people, other species, or inanimate objects. These information exchanges are not limited to intra-organizational transactions, but may cross organizational boundaries. These information exchanges may involve messages, documents, services, and other HL7 constructs.


Orders and Observations has engaged a SAIF Alpha Project to determine to what degree the HL7 SAIF Behavioral Framework can and should be used to develop a Behavioral Model for Orders and Observations. The intent is that this new Behavioral Model can more adequately and comprehensively capture the behavioral semantics of integration, specifically, business process state machines, overarching business processes, and a consistent means of separating out accountability.
