HL7 Denmark - Welcome!

HL7 Denmark

Health Level Seven Denmark (HL7 Denmark) is a national affiliate on standards for interoperability of health information technology. The Danish affiliate is dedicated to profiling and integrating standards into national use. HL7 Denmark's vision is to create the best and most widely used standards in healthcare through a common definition of ethical rules and a comprehensive framework. The purpose of the Danish affiliate is to expand the use of HL7 but also to ensure that the standards are adapted to the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources ( FHIR ), which is HL7's next generation standards framework. HL7 Denmark is active in the development of international standards, by participating in international working groups, webinars etc. Danish Standards is the secretariat of HL7 Denmark Dansk standard.

Procurement recommendations from the Danish affiliate

HL7 FHIR (hereafter FHIR) is under ongoing development, under international auspices under HL7 and under Danish auspices under the Danish HL7 affiliate. This means, among other things, that new versions are continuously published, which can influence IT acquisitions. To help with the acquisition of IT solutions, including tenders, HL7 Denmark has prepared this description. The document is intended as guidance for inspiration and help for setting requirements regarding the use of FHIR. The document touches, for example, on the handling of versions in relation to further development and inspiration for making demands connection with national FHIR profiling in acquisitions where the organization wants to use FHIR.

FHIR Implementations in Denmark

There exists many FHIR enabled systems and applications in Denmark and more than the Danish affiliate know of. This section is intended to give stakeholders a brief introduction to some of the FHIR enabled applications in Denmark. The overview is far from complete and may evolve over time, but hopefully it can be an inspiration for new projects.
