"I expect a similar number to attend by tele-presence, so we will have well over 2000 participants." said Rasmussen.
After the recent amalgamation of HL7 with DICOM and IHE, IHMSDO has significantly accelerated e-Health and Telehealth roll-outs globally.

While the scope of the first standard was limited to administration of patients, diagnostic laboratory reporting and billing, HL7 today covers all areas of healthcare including genomics.
The HL7 meeting in San Diego will be held from 11-16 September 2011.
