  • Meet in between Roadmap Committee meetings; meet twice before April.
  • Come up with 3-4 SMART objective per Strategic Initiative
    • SMART is: specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, trackable

SI 2. Streamline the HL7 standards development process


Optimize HL7 internal processes to more effectively deliver global and realm-specific standards particularly in response to new "customer" requirements.

SMART Objectives

Initial topic list for SMART objectives:

  1. Process and quality improvement
    • Enhance ability to quickly develop low-error "output" products
    • Configuration management in development process
  2. Requirements and traceability -
    • How to understand the customer needs and document them
    • How to trace the requirements to the end result (and back)
  3. Templates -
    • Finish the definition of templates and position them relative to (in contrast to) full-blown "domain-topic" specification.

SI 4. Define an overarching and internally consistent interoperability framework


Maximize design reuse by ensuring consistency of models across HL7 specifications

SMART Objectives

Initial topic list for SMART objectives:

  1. Identify and "manage" inconsistency within a product "family" and between families (CDA, messages, services)
  2. Set Architecture to use "common" models for all three families
  3. Establish process for eliminating extant inconsistencies over time.
