As one of the most prominent standards organizations in the health science area, HL7 has recently joined the OASIS eTMF Standards Technical Committee. Global regulatory agencies such as the FDA and European Medicines Agency (EMA) are collaborating with HL7 on the development of clinical trial study data exchange standards.
Founded in 1987, Health Level Seven International (HL7) is a not-for-profit, ANSI-accredited standards developing organization dedicated to providing a comprehensive framework and related standards for the exchange, integration, sharing, and retrieval of electronic health information that supports clinical practice and the management, delivery and evaluation of health services. HL7’s 2,300+ members include approximately 500 corporate members who represent more than 90% of the information systems vendors serving healthcare.
We welcome HL7 to the growing list of OASIS eTMF Standard technical committee participants. Learn more about HL7’s initiatives and mission at: http://www.hl7.org.
