Benefit of using ebXML for TC215/HL7? Which parts of ebXML are of interest? Which areas in healthcare can use ebXML as it is? • Can TC215 support ebXML? • Liasons, WG, Task Force? • Target of a new group? ISO ebXML Study Montreal (FvB) 13 Answers (users) • Better integration health and business sector • ebXML has a sound technical base useful for health too • Medical know-how should be involved • Profiles made by TC215 are missing • ISO/HL7 should support the Core Component development • Use all the payload independent standards • Work together for the semantics (including Data Types) ISO ebXML Study Montreal (FvB) 14 Answers (users) 2 • • • • TC215 sh0uld develope use-cases Document Handling Electronic Healthcare billing Smartcard relation (ID and Insurance Check) • Organization: Step by step, join e.g. WG • Continue awarness activities ISO ebXML Study Montreal (FvB) 15 Combined Answers OASIS • Encouraged about working with TC215 and HL7 • TC215 could provide use cases and needs • Open and proven standards; ISO 15000 range; ebMS as baseline • Architecture horizontal across domains • Accounting, reimbursement, document sharing • Organization: Liason (A?)
