CHIME and HL7 Announce Partnership

As part of a partnership to advance health care interoperability, the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) and Health Level Seven International (HL7) will work together to promote a standardized approach to interoperable data exchange.

“CHIME is pleased and eager to collaborate with HL7 to combine our efforts in achieving greater interoperability and health information exchange,” says CHIME President and CEO Russell P. Branzell FCHIME, CHCIO. “This partnership emphasizes our commitment to drive the effective use of data sharing to improve the safety, quality, and efficiency of patient care.”

“By providing universal common framework for interoperability of health care data, HL7 standards make organizations across the health care continuum more successful at achieving their business goals,” says HL7 CEO Charles Jaffe, MD, PhD. “We hope that the collaboration with CHIME will serve as a catalyst to drive interoperability in our industry and improve the state of health care delivery across the nation and worldwide.”
