This crossed my emailbox yesterday. I will be participating in my role as Publishing Facilitator for the HL7 Structured Documents Work Group.
On behalf of the Health Story Project and HL7 Structured Documents Work Group I am pleased to announce and invite your participation in the launch of the HL7/IHE Health Story Implementation Guide Consolidation Project.
The Project will take place under the auspices of the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) Standards & Interoperability Framework and is a collaborative effort among the Health Story Project, Health Level Seven (HL7), Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) and interested Healthcare industry stakeholders - collectively, the Consolidation Project Community.
ONC has launched a wiki page to support the project community which you can access here:

FIRST MEETING: January 4, 2011
# Recurring meeting: Tuesday @ 11:00 AM EST - 12:30 PM EST
# Conference line: 1-770-657-9270, Participant Passcode: 310940
# Webmeeting: tbs
In short, the Project will:
1. Republish all eight HL7/Health Story Implementation Guides plus the related/referenced templates from CCD in a single source.
2. Update the templates to meet the requirements of Meaningful Use, in other words, augment the base CCD requirements to meet the requirements of HITSP C32/C83.
3. Reconcile discrepancies between overlapping templates published by HL7, IHE and HITSP.
The Project will not develop new content. (There is a parallel project starting up under ONC to address new content requirements – this is not that project.)
The Project wiki includes links to source material including the HL7 Project Scope Statement.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to a successful collaboration.
