OBJECTIVE: Our purpose is to propose the guideline for developing web services components from HL7 (Health Level 7) standard.

METHODS: All business processes describing in HL7 are modeled using UML (Unified Modeling Language). Both UML diagrams and web services profiles can be presented with XML (Extensible Markup Language). Therefore we suggest a framework to derive web services from HL7 standards semi-automatically.

RESULTS: We show that skeletal XML documents for web services can be generated from HL7 standards. Additionally we propose a way to program with Java for web services using given web service profiles.

CONCLUSION: This paper presents the methodology of developing HL7-compatible electronic health record systems using web services.

Key Words: Standards, Electronic Health Record, HL7, Web Services
