Definition: a suite of specifications based on HL7's Reference Information Model (RIM)


Reference Definition: Health Level Seven Version 3 (V3) is a suite of specifications based on HL7's Reference Information Model (RIM).ÊThe Version 3 Normative Edition represents a new approach to clinical information exchange based on a model driven methodology that produces messages and electronic documents expressed in XML syntax. The V3 specification is built around subject domains that provide storyboard descriptions, trigger events, interaction designs, domain object models derived from the RIM, hierarchical message descriptors (HMDs) and a prose description of each element. Implementation of these domains further depends upon a non-normative V3 Guide and normative specifications for: data types; the XML technical specifications (ITS) or message wire format; message and control 'wrappers;' and transport protocols.
