Standards development organization Health Level Seven International will make much of its intellectual property available via a free license, an initiative expected to start during the first quarter of 2013.

The free property includes all standards, domain analysis models, profiles, implementation guides and some tools. The intellectual property will not be licensed on the open source market, under which other developers may make enhancements. The freely available property means the content must be licensed for use but the license is free. HL7 will continue to control the content, which will continue to be developed and balloted following the organization’s internal rules and standard development requirements under the American National Standards Institute.
