Work group meeting agenda

  • Joint O&O Session
    • Response from Hans - This meeting was established during the FHIR meeting on Thursday in Paris to address a variety of issues around requests in particular, but also further clarification on the boundaries between device/substance/etc. I will reach out to Lloyd to see whether he has any particular agenda in mind as well.
  • Pharmacy Template work
    • Response from Kai - What could help me to prepare the session is work in any sense you did recently and what you want to see transformed into Templates.
  • Meeting with SDWG
    • Suggested topics (Added to Atlanta WG meeting agenda):
      • Is there a clear way to identify brand vs generic since they are all send in the code element? Or is the general recommendation to not send brand-equivalent or generic-equivalent codes in medications?
      • Approach for expressing drug classes
      • Quick review and update to matrix of medication scenarios and representation details
      • Discuss use of list resource and mapping to C-CDA (did this previously, but think it wouldn’t hurt to review again)
Action:  Queries that are part of FHIR - who is responsible?
