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.
