Minutes

CQI Hosted CIMI and CDS

  • Roll call and Introductions
  • CIMI Project Update - Stan Huff provided a project update for CIMI HL7 CIMI Wiki Link
    • Capture Interoperability Project
      • Breast Cancer Staging - balloted as FHIR profiles
      • Create lab observations and Lab FHIR observations (Hematocrit, Hemoglobin, Glucose Tolerance Test, Glucose)
      • FHIR Profiles for Office of Population Affairs and American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG)
      • Continues work on skin and wound modeling
      • Developed CIMI approval model
      • Common Data Element work (e.g., patient name, sex, birthdate, etc.) - CIMI creates/identifies LOINC codes and value sets
      • Vital signs in FHIR - add qualifying attributes (e.g., body location, position, exercise, etc.) and value sets for qualifiers
      • Works in SOLOR (SNOMED-LOINC-RxNorm) to release as a terminology service and include in VSAC
      • Working with the Clinical Information Interoperability Council (CIIC) regarding registry content for download and use
  • QI Core and FHIR Mapping Review
    • Floyd Eisenberg reviewed the current version of QI Core v3.0. QI Core is an implementation guide for use of FHIR by quality measure developers and clinical decision support artifact developers. To the extent that the content is available in US Core, QI Core defaults to the US Core resource constraints. If the required content is not present in US Core then QI Core uses FHIR resources directly. The current version of QI Core is based on the last published version of US Core. A newer version of US Core is awaiting publication - subsequent to that publication CQI plans to create and publish an Update to QI Core 3.0 that incorporates US Core 3.0. The US Core 3.0 has been completed and the publication request approved; it is awaiting final publication so the QI Core update process can begin using the build version of US Core 3.0.
    • QI Core includes mapping from QI Core resources to QDM for consideration in the US market as well as mapping from QDM to QI Core. Testing in the Connectathon and further discussions at this HL7 WGM suggest some modifications for the QDM to QI Core mapping are prudent. These changes can be included in the proposed QI Core 3.0 Update later in Fall 2018.
    • For consideration of eCQMs currently in use in the US under Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) programs, Floyd also showed a mapping from QDM to Argonaut resources (basically FHIR DSTU 2). The intent of the mapping is to determine which, if any, existing eCQMs might be feasible (or challenged) based on existing implementations of FHIR in Argonaut participants. That QDM to Argonaut mapping is a draft and available at:
    • The QI Core 3.0 publication includes a link to the logical view, currently called Quality Improvement Clinical Knowledge (QUICK).
    • Ken Kawamoto and Julia Skapik discussed the original intent of QUICK, i.e., to provide the logical model. Due to tooling and other constraints, only a logical view is now available, not the logical model. The logical model should ideally inform and produce the QI Core and its logical view rather than the current process to manually create and update QI Core with the following principles:
      • Data elements in the logical model should be available in US EHR Systems (note - QI Core is constrained to US Realm since US Core is at its base and US Core constrains FHIR resources for US use and includes terminology bindings specific to the US)
      • The logical model should address what is used in US eCQMs
      • Since the above 2 bullets represent the business intent, then the logical model should map to current work in the Federal Health Information Model (FHIM).
    • The WG discussed whether current tooling might allow a CIMI based logical model against which eCQM and CDS artifact developers can write CQL expressions, and whether we are considering one logical model Vs a progression from one logical model to another. Note that CQL can use any FHIR model.
      • Problem statement: Using the current QI Core / logical view approach, as FHIR evolves and changes, writing eCQMs and CDS requires changes as FHIR updates. Any two EHRs may have different interpretations of FHIR and it will be difficult to author reusable artifacts against multiple versions of the model. It is preferable to have a stable model against which to write artifacts and allow that model produce the output in the desired version for implementers.
      • Mark Kramer asked about the challenge when people exchange data using other profiles. The group considered that the logical model will allow authorship without the need to map to each potential version and implementation. Susan Matney noted that Intermountain Healthcare has had the same logical model for 20 years and couldn't proceed without it.
      • The group agreed that the single logical model is preferable and that QUICK should be the name of that model. The current logical view should be title QI Core Logical View to avoid confusion about the meaning of QUICK.
      • Motion by Ken Kawamoto, seconded by Julia Skapik: The CDS and CQI and CIMI Workgroups agree to represent the QUICK logical model to meet CDS and CQI use cases using the current CIMI models with adjustments as needed, and to work to convert to and from FHIR artifacts. Until such time as this effort is successful, QI Core generation will continue manually to keep up with FHIR and US Core versions.
        • Vote: Approved/Abstain/Opposed - 29/14/0.
  • Connectathon Report out (Bryn Rhodes) FHIR Connectathon 19 Wiki Page
    • Refer to Power Point Presentation: Clinical Reasoning Connectathon 19 Report Out
    • 2 scenarios used QDM to QI Core mapping to FHIR-based CQL
      • 3 CMS measures for preventive screening
      • Required manual tranform of measures into FHIR (use QDM to QI Core mapping)
      • Evaluated QDM-based measures through run-time translation
      • Mitre provided a Cypress-like utility to allow FHIR realization to evaluate a measure report
      • Apelon assisted with terminology
      • Defined QDM items as custom FHIR resources
    • Achievements
      • Calculated QDM-based CMS measures against FHIR source data
      • Calculated FHIR-based CMS measures
      • Used the Crucible testing engine to compare MeasureReport results from different systems
      • Successful submission of DaVinci Medication Reconciliation (MedRec) event uses $submit-data
    • Mapping Issues:
      • Colorectal Cancer Screening
        • Fecal Occult Blood Testing (FOBT) where effective during Measurement Period
          • The QDM used authorDatetime, which QDM-to-QICore mapping says maps to Provenance
          • That mapping is right in general, but in this case, the authorDatetime in QDM was actually being used to approximate "specimen collection", but what the measure is really looking for is "specimen collection" (Note - QDM Laboratory Test; Performed includes at attribute for dateTime defined as physiologic time or specimen time - Procedure, Performed was noted designed by the QDM conceptual data model to address laboratory tests).
          • This means the QDM implementation will be inconsistent some systems will implement as "when recorded", some as "when collected". It also means the mapping can't be encoded in this case
        • Translations
          • Interventions - Difficult to know how this maps to FHIR resources
          • Had to map some codes/code systems such as Administrative Gender
          • Encounter Mapping - "Encounter, Performed".code should map to Encounter.type, not Encounter.class
        • eCQM Specifications - Measure CQL would be easier to read if terminology declarations were right-aligned:
          • In the human readable, the terminology section should just be a table with hyperlinked value set references
    • Participant comments:
      • athenahealth: All of this would be much easier if we had FHIR-based measure and could just evaluate them directly.
      • DynamicHealthIT: Since we started with a working measure calculator our biggest challenge was converting the FHIR resources into native QDM data elements consumable by the measures
    • Links to specific Connectathon 19 track wikis:
  • Clinical Reasoning Update:
    • 14 comments on CDS Resources (2 negative, 12 affirmative)
    • 2 comments on CQI Resources (2 affirmative)
    • R4 STU Next Steps:
      • Resolve and apply ballot comments
      • Apply QA changes for maturity goals
      • FHIR Ballot Prep R4 Publication Timeline - Key dates:
        • 2018-10-31: Final reconciliation package posted for STU ballot
        • 2018-11-01: Final content freeze for R4 publication
