HL7 New Zealand is pleased to announce that our Chair Emeritus, Dr David Hay, has been elected as a Fellow of HL7® International.  David is the first New Zealander to receive this honour which recognises his outstanding commitment and sustained contribution to HL7 International over a fifteen-year period, most recently as a Co-Chair of the HL7® FHIR® Management Group and creator of the popular ClinFHIR Tool.


David was inducted into the HL7 Fellows Programme at last week’s Working Group Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland, USA where the major focus was on preparations for the upcoming Release 4 of FHIR, the first to contain normative content. Further details of this highly-significant work can be found in FHIR Product Director, Grahame Grieve’s meeting report at HERE.
