SWOT

Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats for Modeling and Methodology Work Group (MnM)

Strengths

  • Active members with strong knowledge of V3 and FHIR Methodology and its foundations
  • Active members with a passion for a functional methodology
  • Solid foundation in RIM and Methodology
  • Responsibility for FHIR methodology and data types ensures ongoing relevance

Weaknesses

  • Core members have other primary interests and/or responsibilities within HL7
  • Difficulty getting all (or even most) facilitators (and sometimes even co-chairs) together to form true consensus
  • Lack of bandwidth to train new participants and Facilitators
  • Lack of new participants to pass on the methodology
  • Difficult to track, monitor and maintain active communication with the organizations breadth of Work Groups and projects
  • V3 interest has faded to almost nothing

Opportunities

  • Potential to work on RIM as an ontology or other RIM migration
  • Chance to get more involved in the mapping space
  • Chance to work with Vocabulary on UTG
  • Chance to more formally document FHIR methodology/guidance/best practices, particularly in the IG space
  • Possible methodology in new technical areas - AI, bulk data, ??

Threats

  • Running out of things to do:
    • Primary original purpose for MnM (V3 methodology) will soon be irrelevant
    • FHIR Data types being normative means primary work item to date will significantly fade in volume
  • MnM isn't perceived as relevant, so MnM advice/feedback isn't solicited
  • Unclear where to transition MnM's V3 & methodology responsibilities if we disband
