HL7 (Health Level 7) is a standard for healthcare-specific data exchange between computer applications.

Considerable resources are being invested in the HL7 project by governments and industry as part of national health IT projects with expenditures running into the billions of dollars.

Many claims are made on behalf of HL7 by its advocates. The goal of this blog is to investigate the merits of these claims, and to provide some needed independent perspective on the HL7 project.
