AUTO17: Semantic Interoperability for In Vitro Diagnostic Systems, 1st Edition

CLSI requests nominations for volunteers to serve as members and contributors on a document development committee for a new document.


CLSI document AUTO17 will provide information on navigating the various standards and guidelines that promote in vitro diagnostic (IVD) semantic interoperability. Specific information for laboratories, IVD instrument manufacturers, and IVD software system vendors on using existing resources to support interoperability will be included.

This group is looking for volunteers with experience in:

  • IVD instrument interfaces
  • IVD test results
  • IVD semantic interoperability
  • Health care big-data initiatives (eg, collecting and analyzing health care information)
  • Laboratory informatics
  • Laboratory data workflows

Additional information on essential job duties and skills and abilities for CLSI committee participants can be viewed here.
