Agenda Items and notes

US Meds - PDMP Mapping


The following tracker items were resolved:

FHIR Tracker Items

  • 15105 - MedicationStatement - alignment with WorkFlow
    • notTaken was removed
    • need to consider how to reflect what the prescriber thinks should be taken by the patient - is this a medStatement or is this a MedRequest?
    • Lloyd believes should be using a MedRequest with a "plan" status
    • Choices:
      • take MedStatement back to the way it was
      • US Core - embrace List
      • follow Lloyd's suggestion to use MedRequest with "Plan" status
      • use status field to identify if a prescriber believes the patient should be on this med and uses taken element to identify if the patient is following the order and taking the medication - could previous do this before we aligned MedStatement with workflow
    • March 5, 2018: - deferred until March 12, 2018
      • Ask Lloyd to join call - complete - he can't join on March 12. Need to provide an update to him
    • March 12, 2018:
      • Lloyd believes that MedStatement should only be an indicator of whether the patient/provider says they are taking the medication
      • Options:
        • revert back to having "notTaken"(pre workflow harmonization)
        • provider instructions for medication - should use MedicationRequest - with intent element
        • implement List resources to get active medication list - not preferred
        • current resource with "not taken" as a status - not preferred
      • Need to take this conversation more public -
        • Workflow group - Melva to ask Lloyd to add to Workflow agenda
        • Zulip - posting to Zulip
          • add Workflow discussion
  • 14455 - Workflow report - File:Workflow pharmacy issues Jan 2018.xlsx
    • new report has been run
    • MedicationRequest
      • instantiates - currently supported but workflow has changed the pattern
        • John to talk to Lloyd about the changes needed
    • MedicationAdministration -
      • instantiates - currently supported but workflow has changed the pattern
        • John to talk to Lloyd about the changes needed
    • MedicationDispense
      • Performer - we believe we are consistent
        • Melva to reach out to Lloyd and ask if this is an error in the report - email sent to Lloyd - there is an error on the report.
          • new report to be generated
      • statusReason
        • will add to suppressed-workflow-warnings - different name
        • John to followup with workflow about the reference to DetectedIssue - still outstanding
  • 15136 - Change Dosage to support conditional doses
    • Discussion of the requirement - this is related to conditional dose
    • Scott to pull material from NCPDP
    • John to pull V3 material
    • start to gather requirements and look at existing FHIR material including CDS
  • 15589 - Pharmacy missing isModifierReason
    • MedicationRequest.substitution.allowed
      • do not believe that this should be a "isModifier"
      • will discuss on March 12 call when we have implementers on the call
    • Medication.amount
      • do not believe that this should be a "isModifier"
      • will discuss on March 12 call when we have implementers on the call
    • March 19, 2018:
      • discussion of the purpose of the isModifier flag - discussion of whether there should be isModifier used more often than it is
      • medicationRequest.substitution - will use the wording from the current element and elaborate "this is the element that must be understood from the substitution element. In the substitution block - this is the element that must be understood to understand the meaning of the block
      • medication.amount - agree it is a Modifier
        • should only specify the amount when the medication.code doesn't provide this information
        • then this can not be ignored
Action: Jean to talk to Grahame/Lloyd - about the criteria for when is an element flagged as a Modifier
