Discussion (25 min)
HL7 as an organization has been a catalyst for health information technology standards since the times of HL7v2 and remains a catalyst with HL7 CDA and HL7 FHIR large scale projects as myHealth@EU and eHDSI introducing new ways of developing standards and accelerating their adoption.
Quite timely as we are implementing proof of vaccination for medical and other purposes across Europe and beyond.
Following the speaker talks, the following questions will be addressed in a panel:
How do you see the role of HL7 Europe and European affiliates supporting the proof of vaccination for medical purposes in the COVID-19 pandemic?
What synergies work well in these circumstances? Where more work is needed?
How did you or members of your HL7 Affiliate contribute to national or European specifications for proof of vaccinations?
How do you see the HL7 user communities evolving into the future to support alignment of standards?
How do you see the connection to interoperability policy for research, public health and data science?
