  • Introductions, Agenda Review, etc.
  • Approve Minutes from previous call 2017.01.11 Deferred
  • HL7 San Antonio WGM Report (January 16-20)
> Primary FHIR discussion was a review of review items Lloyd McKenzie sent out before the meetings (open change proposals, ballot comments, quality metrics, etc.)
> Quality metrics are the primary task for the DoF group as there is an effort to finalize the STU3 by the end of February
> (Brian) What happened with adding production specification to Device?
- (Lorraine) it was discussed during an OO session, and there wasn't support for making the change nor anyone to argue in favor
- (Todd) Options are to extend Device to add this (a very frequent use within FHIR) or leverage DeviceComponent, etc.
- ACTION: Schedule a follow-up discussion this Friday at 08:00 Pacific with Brian, Sungkee, John Roads, Ana, Uwe and Ali.
> ACTION: Schedule a general discussion Monday / Tuesday for the QA report items
> NOTE: The next meeting on the 8th will be primarily focused on resolving the open quality issues
  • IHE NA CAT 17 DoF Event Report
> See DoF @ IHE NA CAT17 Wiki Page
> Successful exchange of FHIR content from three devices (vitals monitor, BP simulator and a "pill box" based on 11073-10472), four servers, and two applications
> One exercise included mapping from the 11073-10472 standard to FHIR based on Brian's last posted spreadsheet. Issues were identified and will be review during the session this Friday.
  • HIMSS'17 Showcase Update
> HIMSS approved a coordinated DoF - HSPC demonstration during the upcoming HIMSS'17 conference in the Interoperability Showcase
> Use case will be postnatal preeclampsia, with a Continua enabled home BP and medication montior, a CDS system monitoring patient progress, and a Philips vital signs monitor for when the mother is readmitted.
> NOTE: Most of these exchanges were tested during the Cleveland event.
> John Rhoads will check to see if a patient BP simulator could be provided at the showcase - one that you can attach the device
  • DoF 2017 Program Discussion
> Todd reviewed feedback captured during an evening DoF event in Cleveland the previous week. Participants identified 2017 objects including
- Terminology formalization, SMART on FHIR applications, use cases for care contexts that span from home to acute care, sandboxes, automated service discovery, simulators and test data, hack-a-thon events - especially to engage app developers and researchers
> Ali asked about PCD profiles that might be addressed; the group identified DEC + PIV + RDQ as good candidates; Ken asked whether FHIR was better positioned for streaming use cases or pub/sub on-demand access; in general FHIR is best for on-demand, but it is also being used for streaming as an alternative to the PCD-01 V2-based transactions.
