Founded in 1987, Health Level Seven® International (HL7) is an ANSI-accredited non-profit organization that empowers global health data interoperability by developing standards and enabling their adoption and implementation. In alignment with HL7’s vision of “a world where everyone can securely access and use the right health data when and where they need it”, HL7 created HL7 FHIR®, leveraging the latest web standards and applying a tight focus on implementability.
HL7 affiliates have been established in more than 30 countries, and HL7 members represent approximately 500 corporate members, which include more than 90 percent of the information systems vendors serving healthcare. HL7 collaborates with other standards developers and provider, payer, philanthropic, and government agencies at the highest levels to ensure the development of comprehensive and reliable standards and successful interoperability efforts.
