Subject: [ihc] Systematic Interoperability - this just in from OMG & HL7

Dear Colleague; 

In mid-September, the Object Management GroupT (OMGT) and Health Level Seven
announced a strategic collaboration to develop software standards in the
healthcare industry. OMG and HL7 will work together on electronic healthcare
standards, including electronic drug prescribing, and patient record
interoperability infrastructure. 

A new HL7-OMG collaboration taskforce will leverage the Unified Modeling
LanguageT (UMLT) along with the OMG's Model Driven ArchitectureR (MDAR) in
order to support interoperability in healthcare. To make this happen, the
MedicAlertR Foundation International and the OMG Healthcare Domain Task
Force (HDTF), invite you to attend the "Interoperability in Healthcare" 
kick-off meeting on Thursday, November 4, 2004 in Washington DC. 

"The OMG's Model Driven Architecture has been tremendously useful in
conceptualizing our approach to develop healthcare services within HL7, " 
said Ken Rubin, VHA Health Information Architect and covenor of the informal
HL7 Services 'Birds-of-a-Feather' working group.  "As this work evolves, I
look forward to close collaboration with the OMG to realize the benefits of
HL7 RIM semantics in computational, portable, interoperable healthcare IT

The November meeting is the third of a series of meetings, begun in April at
the OMG Technical Committee meeting in St. Louis, intended to cultivate the
relationship between OMG and HL7, the world's leading healthcare-specific
standards organization. The relationship is critical as OMG will rely on HL7
's Reference Information Model (RIM) and HL7's Development Framework (HDF)
for OMG's service standards. HL7 already incorporates OMG's UML expertise to
implement their RIM and its associated methodologies (HDF) to develop
standard information models for healthcare and related domains including
administrative, financial and research areas. 

With the joint OMG-HL7 announcement these meetings now move to a more formal
stage. Both organizations seek to work with appropriate industry groups and
recognize the need to provide an internationally recognized forum for the
development of standards for interoperability based on emerging Electronic
Health Record standards in the Healthcare industry. 

The keynote speaker will be Lee Jones, Senior Technical Advisor to Dr. David
J. Brailer, National Coordinator for Health Information Technology at the
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This day includes
presentations on the use of the MDA in healthcare and participants will work
on the HDTF roadmap. The goal is to reach agreement on an initial set of
standards that will be developed through the OMG's technology adoption
process. The HDTF will rely on HL7's UML-based Reference Information Model
(RIM) and HL7 Development Framework (HDF) for its new suite of healthcare
service specifications. 

The OMG is an international, vendor-neutral software standards consortium. 
Its vendor neutral process has provided a forum for the development of
interoperability standards in vertical markets including Healthcare, Life
Sciences, Telecommunications and Manufacturing, since 1989. 

Health Level Seven, Inc. is a not-for-profit, ANSI-accredited standards
development organization dedicated to providing a comprehensive framework
and related standards for the exchange, integration, sharing, and retrieval
of electronic health information that supports clinical practice and the
management, delivery and evaluation of health services. 

The  MedicAlertR Foundation, along with representatives from ExpressScripts,
PatientKeeper, Kaiser Permanente and HL7 invite you to join us on Thursday,
November 4. 

We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to share your experience
in response to end-user requirements in this domain. 

The fee to attend this day-long event is $150.  For registration,
http://www.omg.org/registration/registration-info.htm.  For questions or
additional information, please contact OMG's VP of Business Development,
Nicole Glazen Rikkinen at 781-444-0404 or nicole@omg.org. 

Look forward to seeing you in DC!
