FHIR Status

  • Hugh reported he is now a member of the HL7 FHIR Management Group
  • Hugh stated that the Pharmacy WG is due to provide content on our first resource - Medication Administration, for the January Ballot
  • Discussion followed - Stephen Chu asked why Administration was our first FHIR resource as opposed to Prescription. Hugh responded that Pharmacy decided to address the "simplest" pharmacy resource to start with and address the others after we had increased knowledge about the FHIR process.
  • Questions were asked about the existing pharmacy resource that was created and is present in the current FHIR ballot materials. This material is expected to be replaced by the Pharmacy WG "prescription" resource after we have developed it.
  • The format for documenting FHIR resources is:
    • UML diagram
    • XML snippet
    • Vocabulary definitions
  • Hugh provided a view of the UML diagram created from the Medication Administration RMIM and Pharmacy FHIR Administration Resource spreadsheet that was developed in Baltimore.
