Grahame Grieve : Ed Hammond Volunteer of the Year Award

April 2013

In the second half of 2012, HL7 International held the HL7 Plenary workgroup meeting, where the 14th annual W. Edward Hammond PhD Volunteer of the Year Award was presented. Named after one of HL7’s founding members and most tireless volunteers, Dr Ed Hammond, the award has been bestowed upon significant contributions to HL7’s success since 1997.

Kestral is pleased to announce that long-time employee; now consultant, Grahame Grieve was one of two recipients of the most recent Ed Hammond award. A photograph and official announcement of Grahame’s award conferral can be viewed on the HL7 International website at:

Writing about the award on his blog Health Intersections, Grahame stated,

“This is a particularly prestigious award, made to only a very few people who have gone beyond the call of duty to push the cause of HL7... The recipient list is a small and select bunch. I’m very honoured to have received this recognition.”

We would like to offer our sincerest congratulations to Grahame on this prestigious achievement. Your tireless work in the advancement of healthcare standards and interoperability is inspiring and has been suitably recognised with this important award.
