Thank you HL7 Community

Dear HL7 community,

This week is World Standards Week, October 10-14, and we would like to recognize the global impact that you collectively make on standards and healthcare.

Standards development and implementation are at their best when diverse stakeholders collaborate. The impact of our community is amplified through your dedication to a shared mission: providing standards that empower global health data interoperability.

With this in mind, we encourage you to pause and reflect on the difference you make and recognize that your reach extends to touchpoints throughout the global healthcare ecosystem.

We are honored that you have chosen to align your efforts with HL7 International.

Warm regards,

Andy Truscott JPG
