What is HL7?Just as people from different countries with completely different native tongues are only able to communicate with each other if they can speak a common language, computer applications can only share information if they communicate with a common protocol. For people or computers to be able to share clinical data with one another, they must both: A group of healthcare computer systems users started developing the HL7 protocol in 1987 to create a common "language" that allows healthcare applications to share clinical data with each another. Over time the HL7 interoperability protocol became a nationally, internationally and globally accepted and accredited standard.
The term "Health Level 7" ("HL7") is used both for the organisations involved in developing and supporting the healthcare standards as well as for the Version 2.x and Version 3 Standards themselves and other standards developed by the HL7 local organisations in over 30 countries. HL7 creates international standards for inter-system and inter-organisation messaging, for decision support, clinical text document mark-up, user interface integration as well as a health data model and a message development methodology.
