Message from HL7

To our HL7 International community,

The past two years have been challenging for all of us, and now the world is faced with the unfolding conflict in Eastern Europe.

We are sure that the events of the past 24 hours have left you, as they have us, saddened.

HL7 has a long-standing history of global participation, support and collaboration from across the world. We are proud to have such a united community dedicated to the advancement of interoperability and the betterment of healthcare across the world. Our mutual goals and passion have brought together individuals from diverse communities who have created strong bonds and friendships through their work within HL7.

At its very heart, HL7’s mission is one of peace, care, mutual understanding and non-violent resolution of all conflicts. Our members support the basic human rights of safety and security.

The thoughts and goodwill of our HL7 family are with our fellow community members in the region as they endure these events.

With our heartfelt wishes,

Andy Truscott JPG
