Explanatory Note: Australia has localised HL7 v2.x messages for local use, in order to support consistent use Handbooks or Implementation Guides have been published. While this goes some way to supporting interoperable use IHE Australia working with SA committees and MSIA have produced two "profiles" using IHE methodology and approaches. These profiles are then used as the basis of conformance and testing in IHE type connectathons.
