Documentation Publication topics

  • Jose would provide a link for the IHE pharmacy profiles. Jose will provide the link as soon as possible.
  • There is still discussion within IHE where to publish the material. We do not want to publish under the root of HL7.
  • Jose will ask the IHE Board to create a IHE subdirectory under / before a deadline ( for example July 1st). If not IHE Pharmacy will publish under HL7 and if that is not appropriate because of copyrights, then we will considering publischinf on a seperate commercial site.
