Agenda                                 Item Description

    Item 1: HL7 GELLO Syntax Revisions Project Proposal

GELLO is a guideline expression language developed to query HL7 RIM v.3 compliant data. The language was developed by the HL7 CDS TC and approved as both an HL7 and ANSI standard in 2005.

Since 2005, the language syntax has been evaluated by several international HL7 members (InferMed/Medical Objects/IBM/WebReach) and found to contain discrepancies and inconsistencies that need to be addressed prior to implementing the language on a large scale.

This project is being undertaken to re-evaluate GELLO’s syntax and to work toward a 2nd normative ballot after producing a DSTU ballot and testing the language in at least two “real world” pilot implementations.

Some of the issues will be resolved with the ARB and they will be assisting this group with some issues.

Motion: To approve project proposal. Made by: Kathlen. Second by: Matt. Discussion: Request for functional documentation and use cases. Vote: Abstain: 0 Against: 0 Approving: 5 Motion Passes
