Motion to approve minutes of March 21: Scott/John: unanimous

Composite orders

  • Talked through several composite order scenarios.
  • No-one could come up with a use-case where an explicit electronic record of the 'parent' order was necessary.
  • Existing approach of being able to link leaf-level orders to a protocol/order set and to a parent/requisition identifier seems sufficient
  • Will wait to confirm the existing approach of treating parents as 'virtual' until Bob Dieterle is able to join the call.

Definition resources

  • Looked at the OrderSet and Protocol resources.
  • Will try to have Bryn join a future call to work through the order set resources.
  • Some confusion about the name "OrderSet" - common usage is to use that term to refer to a collection of patient-specific orders (what we're currently calling a 'composite' order). The resource is only for definitions
  • Discussion about whether we should expand the scope of the various 'request' resources to also support use within OrderSet/Protocol
    • General feeling was "no" - needed data elements are different, permissions are different, etc.
    • Alternatives are:
      • Create parallel resources, one for each "request" resource
      • Create a "smaller" number of protocol resources
      • Merge the domain-specific activity attributes into the generic OrderSet/Protocol resource
  • Discussion about scope - can we cover non-clinical protocols?
  • Will continue discussion when
