This is the agenda of the AID 'user group' meeting in Chicago (Sept. 2014)

Tuesday Q6 (Electronic Servives and Tools hosts)

  • Hosted by EST (Tooling merged with ES)

Wednesday Q4 (hosting EST)

  1. Administrative agenda items
    • Planning for San Antonio (Jan. 2015)
      • When it comes to co-chairs - Rene won't be there; Peter will attend; Andy doesn't know yet.
      • Use same quarters ? SUN Q3/Q4, MON Q3, WED Q4
  2. Tooling aspects (joint with EST, max 30 minutes)
    1. Evaluation/promotion of implementation oriented tools (see Tools for RIM based software development, our scope has widened however)
      • Update January 2014: Peter and Andy will work with Rene off-line to improve/edit the Tools for RIM based software development. After the edits have been completed by the smaller group, the updated wiki page will be presented to the wider AID community for ratification at an upcoming meeting
      • Update Sept 2014:
    2. Creating 'implementation packages' of HL7 standard publications, software processable expressions thereof that can be used for source code generation, as well as other related implementation tools and toolkits.
      • AID has passed a motion that states we think the publication (by HL7) of such packages would be a good idea. Whom do we need to convince within the organization, what would it mean in practical terms, to create such packages for e.g. HL7v2, CDA, etc.?
      • Example: The HL7v2 Implementation Bundle could consist of the HL7v2 spec (in HTML) format, v2 examples, the HAPI/nHAPI toolkits, the v2 XML schema, the v2 database (with definition of message structures).
        • Update January 2014: Andy has proposed this concept to the steering division and TSC. Both groups agreed that the idea was worth pursuing. Andy is tasked with creating a PSS for the work, gaining appropriate approval
        • Update Sept. 2014:

    • Rene calls to order at 13:45
    • Rene: as per our DMP I hereby announce that I'll be creating video recordings of the presenters and their presentations - to allow those that are not present here to view some of the highlights; should somone not wish to be recorded, please let us know. No objections were raised.
  2. Development of web apps for FHIR with FHIR API AngularJS module ( (Pavel Smirnov, and )
  3. Using FHIR resoutrces for claims (Paul Knapp)
    • xxxxxxxxx
  4. Importing FHIR Profiles in ART DECOR (Ewout Kramer, Kai Heitmann)
    • Discussion about how (and which parts of) FHIR Profiles could ART DECOR (which supports the creation/validation of all kinds of XML templates). The template expressions could be used in turn by the MARC HI Everest toolkit as the basis for code generation.

  1. Administrative agenda items
    • Rene calls to order at 13:50
    • Announcements
      • Rene: in July we held an e-mail vote for the FTSD co-chair
        • MOTION (on July 1st) by Andy Stechishin, seconded by Howard Edidin: I MOVE we vote for Paul.
        • Seven votes were recieved by the tally (Rene); the motion was accepted 7-0-0 on July 17th.
    • Approval of the minutes of the Amsterdam out-of-cycle meeting
      • MOTION to approve the minutes of the out-of-cycle meeting held in Amsterdam on June 3rd, 2014, as documented on the AID 201406 Agenda wiki page - (Peter/Michael, 10-0-0)
    • Discussion of upcoming AID out-of-cycle meetings
      • Rene: I've contacted the organizers of IHIC 15 to arrange for a 'joint' event in Prague next year. The audience and aims of IHIC largely overlap with those of AID - as such this should be of mutual benefit. The last few years IHIC has attracted HL7 implementers with an acadameic or research background - whereas AID mainly attracts implementers that have a non-academic background.
      • Libor: IHIC is organized around the world in various countries. In this case HL7 Germany and HL7 Austria are supporting the organization of this 15th IHIC in Prague. There is a need to get more industry involvement in IHIC, so we need implementers to show up.
      • MOTION To organize an AID out-of-cycle meeting in Prague, Czech Republic, in conjunction with the 15th International HL7 Interoperability Conference (IHIC) held on February 9-11, 2015. (Peter/Libor, 11-0-0)
    • Upcoming WGMs: San Antonio, Paris
      • No specific topcs were suggested to those present. The co-chairs will identify appropriate topics as the focus for discussion/presentations.
  2. Synthetic cda/fhir message generation for benchmarking (Yeb Havinga, MGRID, NL)
    • 'Big Data, Analytics, Privacy and Ethics' is the topic of this years plenary meeting. Collecting and aggregating health data for analytics brings the promise of improving outcome, while at the same time there is a tension between secondary usage of data, and security and privacy regulations. In the AXLE project, Portavita and MGRID show how HL7 standards are instrumental in both collecting data, as well as providing access to data in a controlled way. In this session we give a demo of the AXLE healthcare benchmark, the first big data healthcare benchmark. In particular we'll demonstrate the open-source synthetic CDA and FHIR message generator, how to transform 1000's of msg/s from XML to SQL persistence, and a scalable database for analytics on healthcare data using an augmented, full RIM data model. Related to this session is the presentation for the Security Workgroup where we show how the Healthcare Classification System can be used to govern access to healthcare data for analytics.'
