FHIR Ballot Reconciliation

  • Regarding FHIR Assignment updates - Ric and Chris have been updating the assignments as they are completed in gForge.

Status Discussion (PRIORITY ITEM)

  • Completed review and final edits for 'status' for the following resources:
    • Medication Order
    • Medication Administration
    • Medication Dispense
    • Medication Statement
      • A motion to accept the updated status definitions and cardinality changes was made by John Hatem, and seconded by Tom de Jong. The motion passed For - 6, Against - 0, Abstain - 0
  • Action Item: The spreadsheet with the documented changes was sent by John Hatem to Melva, who I believe has an action item to update FHIR with the details of the changes.
  • A suggestion to review a new status called 'Proposed' was deferred for a future call.

MedicationPrescription vs MedicationOrder (PRIORITY ITEM)

  • The Medication Prescription was renamed Medication Order. One follow up based on some listserv and email discussions was a suggestion to update the definition for Medication Order. John Hatem has proposed some updates to this definition that will be discussed at our next meeting.

  • Deferred all other listserv discussions this week, as we focused on our FHIR critical items.
