The WG started with the intention to complete work that had been started on the FHIR
wiki. Ewout had reviewed the items and had attemped to update and address the items. Here
the WG started reviewing how the Person attributes were being "folded in" to the Patient
Patient identifier came into the discussion. The point of the discussion was whether the
identifier should be on the patient resource class or the demographics related class. A
suggestion was made by Helen to put in both demographics and the patient class. After
discussion and presentation of ad hoc use cases, it was decided that this was a good
suggestion. Ewout will reintroduce it into the demographics associated class.
The WG then discussed whether a patient should have a "period" attribute essentially
meaning "effective time". The WG agreed that the "effective time" did not add value as
there were no use cases that we could think of wherein this would be communicated
OtherID - The question here was whether we need data about the process of validation
(e.g. date identified, who made the identification, how was the identifcation made, etc.)
The WG could not think of the need for these, so futher no modeling need for the process
Contact - Ewout modeled this as a contact associated class. Some defined codes:
This seems to be aligned with the V3 model, however, after a little discussion regarding the use of the concept of "next of kin" within v2, the WG decided to keep Family and add
"Emergency" to the codes, for clarity.
With this, the WG has completed the open items on the FHIR Person Resource Wiki. We still
need to address items on the FHIR wiki for the Patient resource. This will be a topic for
a future meeting.
Just before the meeting ended, the chair attempted to address a harmonization proposal
from the Vocabulary Facilitator, Wendy Huang. The proposal name is:
Add two codes to RoleClass_QualifiedEntity
The summary reads:
We have identified a requirement in Personnel Management topic implementation to
uniquely identify provider credentials and provider expertise as two individual classes,
hence two new class codes are required.
Since the time had run out on this call, the WG decided to put this on the agenda for the
next telecon on February 18, 2013. This will be the first item on the agenda since the
deadline for submission will not allow one more week.
Adjourned: 1:01 PM PST.
