Health Level 7 (HL7)
Health Level Seven (HL7) is a set of international standards used to provide guidance with transferring and sharing data between various healthcare providers. The HL7 standards were created by Health Level Seven International, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a comprehensive framework and related standards for the exchange, integration, sharing, and retrieval of electronic health information. The adoption of these standards supports clinical practice and the management, delivery and evaluation of health services. HL7 is supported by more than 1600 members from over 50 countries, including 500+ corporate members representing healthcare providers, government stakeholders, payers, pharmaceutical companies, vendors/ suppliers, and consulting firms. HL7 standards act as a bridge between modern healthcare services and advancing information technology.
