HL7 Australia is proud to announce the foundation of its new Technical Steering Committee (TSC) and the creation of the first three Work Groups. Broadly modelled after their HL7 International counterparts, the first three Work Groups are:
- Orders and Observations (OO)
- Patient Administration (PA)
- Medications (Medications)
In this bootstrapping phase, the Board of HL7 Australia has invited leaders in Health informatics to join the TSC or lead a Work Group. As their initial terms expire, membership of the TSC and appointment of Co-Chairs will be by election.
The foundation HL7 Australia TSC Leadership team is:
Dr Andy Bond TSC Chair
Mr Brett Esler Committee member
Mr Damon Groenveld Committee member
Dr Zoran Milosevic Committee member
A/Prof Trish Williams Committee member
Mr Richard Dixon Hughes Honorary member
Mr Grahame Grieve Honorary member
The Work Group Co-Chairs are:
Orders and Observations
Dr Michael Legg
Dr Andrew McInytre
Mr Brian Postlethwaite
Mr Michael Steine
Mr Andrew Griffin
Dr Sam Heard
The Board of HL7 Australia expresses thanks to these individuals and their supporting organisations for their participation and future contribution to the growth of a new Australian Standards Development Initiative.
The first Working Group Meeting will be held in Brisbane on 11 April 2016. Members and other interested parties are encouraged to attend and participate in this free event. Registration is now open.
Chair, HL7 Australia
