Annual Membership Cost
Membership costs are based on a twelve-monthly rate, which varies according to the membership tier selected. Members can elect to pay up to 18 months in advance by arrangement.
HL7 Australia is required under the constitution to charge all new members a one-off fee of $10 that limits your liability as a member to $10. Once paid, this fee will not be charged on renewal of a membership. For accounting purposes please note this payment is GST exempt.
A policy decision of HL7 Australia is to charge all members that are not renewing their membership a $10 administration fee (inc GST). This will be taken from the initial $10 deposit to simplify administration, rather than refunding that $10 deposit on lapse or termination of membership.
Membership entitles members to:
- Free access to HL7 standards documentation, including those originated in the Australia and the US or by any other HL7 international affiliate.
- Members-only access to the main HL7 website in the US
- Reduced membership rates for attendance at any HL7 meetings which have a charge (including those outside the Australia).
- Free attendance at all HL7 Australia meetings (other than those which carry a surcharge).
The Board of HL7 Australia comprises eight volunteer Directors.
Office bearers include a chairperson, secretary, treasurer and director of membership.
The Board is responsible for managing and directing the activities of HL7 Australia to achieve the objective of facilitating adoption of e-health in Australia by promoting effective use of standards and products developed by HL7 International and supporting enhancement of these products and services to meet the needs of Australia.
The present Board has been meeting every two weeks via virtual meetings.
