Jump to navigation Jump to search
This is the agenda of the AID HL7 'user group' for the WGM in Atlanta (October 2015)
- Project and issue review
Sunday Q3/Q4 (hosting FHIR)
- Rene Spronk, and 40 others (40 in Q3, 24 in Q4)
- Rene: as per our DMP I'm asking for your permission to record and publish video of the various presentations. No objections were raised.
- Simple JSON Parser Mobile App (Jeff Ting, Systems Made Simple, US)
- I wrote a mobile app for the first time, and one that can parse JSON to any level of depth to reach FHIR elements of interest. I will discuss the parsing design, as well as lessons learned on user interface layouts for mobile.
- Comment by James Agnew: could also use HAPI, it has an Android library.
- General FHIR Server Design Review (Brian Postlethwaite, Healthconnex, AU)
- Covers different types and approaches for implementing a FHIR server (Generic FHIR Server, Publish/Sync, Façade, Cache)
- Aims to raise discussion about these various approaches
- Comment by Ewout: may lead to situation whereby primary key (as used internal to the persistence layer) is publicly exposed as the resource.id.
- Question by Rene: excellent overview, IMHO should be used as a starter version for one of our whitepapers. does this room also feel that to be the case? Yes. Also a whitepaper on the v2-FHIR mapping issues.
- clinFHIR implementation experiences (David Hay, Orion Health, NZ)
- See http://clinfhir.com/ for the clinFHIR site.
- FHIR Enable Epic EHR using Cloverleaf (Ron Archambault, Infor, US)
- Infor developed FHIR DSTU-2 Message bundles with patient and questionnaire resources using the Epic InterConnect API
- Development of "FHIR cell for i2b2" (Kavi Wagholikar MD, MGH, US)
- This presentation will describe the technical details and learnings in the development of the fhir interface for i2b2.
- Over 100 institutions in the US have i2b2 installations for identifying research cohorts. The fhir api is aimed at providing a readonly interface to the data hosted in the i2b2 instances, allowing the institutions to run SMART apps over i2b2.
- Executes a query agains an in-memory bundle of resources.
- HL7 ORM v2.3 into FHIR REST-API (Joerg-Uwe Meyer, MT2IT, DE)
- Migration/translation issue v2-FHIR
- Creating the FHIR interface for the NHS FGM Risk Identification System (Richard Kavanagh, HSCIC, England)
- An overview of the journey of implementing FHIR into the English NHS national architecture (see http://data.developer.nhs.uk/fhir/fgm/ ). The challenges of moving away from HL7v3, dealing with a DSTU standard and the absence of tooling infrastructure. Lessons learned and the roadmap for the future.
- Challenge will be 'using FHIR at scale'.
- Adjournement at 17:00
- Approval of the minutes of the May WGM in Paris, available at AID 201505 Meeting in Paris
- Use of a RIM-lite OWL triple store to calculate quality measures (Peter Hendler, KP)
- Peter has been working with Oxford University UK dept of Computer Science and KP National Quality. They have an OWL ontology based on Entities in Roles Participating in Acts (ERPA; it is not the full RIM by any means, it is their own RIM lite OWL). They have successfully calculated some Diabetes quality measures using OWL, RDF and SNOMED.
- Peter will discuss some of the core design considerations, as well as other experiences.
- See http://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/isg/tools/RDFox/ for details of RDFox, a highly scalable in-memory RDF triple store.
