HL7 Tooling We have an offer from Sparx Systems where they will fund ($4K) a contest around UML modeling and tooling. The tooling work group was contacted and asked to create suggestions on a objective for the contest. As of today we dont have a final suggestion whose scope reasonably fits the money promised. 01/14/2011 2

HL7 Tooling At this time I intend to propose to the general session two needs: 1.Recommendations for a tooling-based contest objective that will be announced one month after the San Antonio Meeting. 01/14/2011 3

HL7 Tooling Instructions/Suggestions from the Tooling Wiki*: The Model Interchange Format is organized as a set of XML Schema files that describe the key metadata to express published standards. The MIF is used to transform the approved models as serialized XML files. The MIF was designed to meet the requirements of the V3 Methodology to express concepts that could not be expressed in XMI. Requirements for MIF[1][1] The following ideas were proposed - we haven't decided which of these ideas will be proposed, although we have concluded that the second proposal should be postponed as it is dependent on the first idea. Produce a UML Profile for MIF Static Models - This is a task so that other modeling tools have a chance to be configured to understand MIF Produce a MIF to XMI XML transform consistent with an updated UML Profile - This task is dependent on the completion of task 1. Produce a viewer that can browse MIF schemas (Meta level)- this task makes it easier to understand the relationship among the MIF files and their elements. Produce a viewer that can browse MIF based models (model level)- this task makes it easier to understand the serialized models expressed in MIF XML. Produce a viewer that can browse instances from MIF based models (instance level) - this task makes it easier to evaluate instances based on serialized MIF models.(there is some work that already exists) * 01/14/2011 4

HL7 Tooling 2.We need more: a)Tool-smiths (i.e., people who write code); b)Requirements Documenters; c)Test Case Developers; d)Tool Testers. 3.We are down to about four full-time-equivalent participants in the Tooling WG and the HL7 organization needs work done in tooling. a)Some funds have been allocated in the HL Budget to provide compensation for approved tooling development and maintenance activities. 01/14/2011 5

SAIF Canonical Definition* Continue progress at making HL7 SOA Services Aware: The ArB passed a significant milestone when it completed a balloted version of the Services Aware Interoperability Framework (SAIF) Canonical Definition. The TSC now continues in its project to determine a standardized approach to the adoption of SAIF into our products so that they are all services aware and have a common approach for using HL7 in a Services Oriented Architecture where interoperability can be achieved through software callable services. *From annual report 01/14/2011 8

Product Brief Release* Product Documentation: Over this last year we initiated and completed a project to inventory all of our products, create and publish standardized documentation on these products and create a mechanism to maintain this documentation. This was completed in 2011 as a foundational first step to support a formal strategic product strategy. We analyzed over 100 independent balloted pieces of HL7 that are in current publication as HL7 Standards, created a standard format for describing them, identified the current responsible work group for each one and then allowed time for these work groups to review and suggest corrections and changes to them. As a 25 year member of HL7 I can attest that this is the first time that this has been done since HL7s inception in *From annual report 01/14/2011 9
