Health – HL7

HL7 provides a framework (and related standards) for the exchange, integration, sharing, and retrieval of electronic health information. These standards define how information is packaged and communicated from one party to another, setting the language, structure and data types required for seamless integration between systems. HL7 standards support clinical practice and the management, delivery, and evaluation of health services, and are recognized as the most commonly used in the world.

Homeland Security / Justice – NIEM

The National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) provides a broad range of products and capabilities for planning and implementing enterprise-wide information exchanges. Government effectiveness and citizen centric government services require effective cross line of business collaboration and communication. Use of national standards will avoid redundant investment and unnecessary variation.

The Justice domain provides the criminal justice system with the data elements, objects, and properties it needs to share critical information between jurisdictions and levels of government.

Utah uses NIEM standards to exchange criminal justice information with state, local, and federal partners.
