The HL7 e-learning course (ELC) is an internet based, tutor monitored, HL7 managed, self-study course on HL7 standards. The goal of the ELC is to create a cost effective and affordable way to give opportunity for healthcare IT professionals, globally, to learn about HL7 standards so that they can use them in their implementations.
This provides an additional venue for learning about HL7 standards, in addition to the existing tutorials at HL7 WG meetings, Education Summits and Affiliates’ education programs. Additionally it allows HL7 to outreach to countries with limited HL7 education available and therefore helps bring them into the HL7 community. This fourteen week virtual course allows the flexibility for the students to take it from work or home.
