Defining Health Level Seven [HL-7]

Join Our Mailing List

What it is – How it works?

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA CMP™

http://www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

[Publisher-in-Chief]

HL7 is an international community of health care subject matter experts and information technology physicians and scientists collaborating to create standards for the exchange, management, and integration of protected electronic health care information. The Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Health Level Seven (HL7) standards developing organization has evolved Version 3 of its standard, which includes the Reference Information Model (RIM) and Data Type Specification (both ANSI standards).

HL7-3

The HL7 Version 3 is the only standard that specifically deals with creation of semantically interoperable health care information, essential to building the national infrastructure; HL7 promotes the use of standards within and among health care organizations to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of health care delivery for the benefit of all patients, payers, and third parties; uses an Open System Interconnection (OSI) and high level seven health care electronic communication protocol that is unique in the medical information management technology space and modeled after the International Standards Organization (ISO) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI); each has a particular health care domain such as pharmacy, medical devices, imaging, or insurance (claims processing) transactions. Health Level Seven’s domain is clinical and administrative data.

The Goals

Goals include:

  • develop coherent, extendible standards that permit structured, encoded health care information of the type required to support patient care, to be exchanged between computer applications while preserving meaning;
  • develop a formal methodology to support the creation of HL7 standards from the HL7 Reference Information Model (RIM);
  • educate the health care industry, policymakers, and the general public concerning the benefits of health care information standardization generally and HL7 standards specifically;
  • promote the use of HL7 standards world-wide through the creation of HL7 International Affiliate organizations, which participate in developing HL7 standards and which localize HL7 standards as required;
  • stimulate, encourage, and facilitate domain experts from health care industry stakeholder organizations to participate in HL7 to develop health care information standards in their area of expertise;
  • collaborate with other standards development organizations and national and international sanctioning bodies (e.g., ANSI and ISO) in both the health care and information infrastructure domains to promote the use of supportive and compatible standards; and
    • collaborate with health care information technology users to ensure that HL7 standards meet real-world requirements and that appropriate standards development efforts are initiated by HL7 to meet emergent requirements.

Assessment

Argentina, Australia, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, India, Japan, Korea, Lithuania, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Southern Africa, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, and the United Kingdom are part of HL7 initiatives.

  1. What is HL7?

    HL7 is how healthcare applications talk to each other – for example, when a patient is admitted to a facility, when a patient schedules an appointment, when a lab test is ordered, or when a medication is prescribed an HL7 message can be sent from one system to another. HL7 is what disparate systems use to tell each other about patient activity. HL7 is a widely adopted text based communications standard created in 1987 that can run on almost all modern hardware and software systems that support the standard.

    An essay by our colleague Shahid Shah:

    http://www.healthcareguy.com/2014/07/06/guest-article-hl7-faq-and-why-exchanging-critical-patient-data-isnt-a-nightmare/

    The HL7 specification is governed by Health Level Seven International, a not-for-profit, ANSI-accredited standards developing organization.

  2. Optimizing the HL7 C-CDA?

    There is no question that interoperability is the future of healthcare delivery. The more providers can understand and leverage standardized messaging protocols like HL7 C-CDA, the better prepared they will be as their information-sharing needs evolve.
