HSSP Unified Communications & Escalation Service Interface Specification Project

Project Scope

The proposed Unified Communication Service is intended to complement existing SOA services and the SAIF Behavioural Framework (BF) for HL7. It will provide a Service Functional Model (SFM) for delivering alerts, recommendations, and other notifications using a variety of transport mechanisms to include email, SMS, VOIP or other communication channels. The service will provide for message routing and/or escalation to ensure that when the intended recipients are not available, appropriate surrogates can be notified and priority messages can be responded to in a timely manner.

Pre-existing conceptual and standards-development work in the Communications domain (Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol-XMPP, Short Message Service-SMS, Session Initiation Protocol-SIP, OASIS WS-Human Task, OASIS Web Services Notification-WSN) will be leveraged to help document the necessary definitions, descriptions, graphics, and artifacts that are relevant. In keeping with the approach used by other HL7 specifications, the Communication Service will distinguish between the communication modality itself and the payload being communicated. The Service Interface Specification will provide functional, semantic, and conformance profiles.
