Meeting took place in Cologne, Germany, at the end of the HL7 international working group meeting. Each of the 4 organisations presented a selection of work items of interest to the orthers. With about 15 participants, that meeting met participant’s expectations and is another positive milestone for future exchanges.
“It was a nice opportunity to meet the people representing the various standardisation organisations in real life. So next time when I receive a mail or attend a telcon I know the face behind the name. To hear about the successes achieved, but also about issues my fellow-standardisation organisations encounter, or what is important for them, broadens your own scope. This helps to reflect on your own organisation and work. Moreover it contributes to a better understanding and strengthens future communication and cooperation.”
