Dr. Eric Fishman and Dr. Charles Jaffe, CEO of HL7, discuss how HL7 International
has garnered affiliates in over 40 countries, and how the organization has become
the leading global
standards development organization for the sharing health information.
They discuss how HL7 International standards help physicians not just ‘use’ data,
but reuse data through permanent electronic documentation, which will be more and
more important as the
government makes strides towards creating a National Health Information Infrastructure.
