2017 HL7 WGM, Madrid, Spain - Device Track at FHIR Connectathon May 6-7
These organizations and individuals participated in the DoF event:
Stefan Karl from Philips Healthcare Patient Monitoring, Boeblingen, Germany (email@example.com), was not able to attend the Connectathon but contributed an example bundle resource showing the linked use of Patient, Observation, Device, multiple DeviceComponent and DeviceMetric resources to represent both the hierarchical structure of the components of a physiological monitor reporting ECG heart rate and pulse oximeter oxygen saturation, background information on the metrics reported, and the quantitative results.
The participants on site used this example to explore creating StructureDefinition resources ("profiling") constraining the various components to conform to the model of the device and allow validation of the example bundle using simplifier.net and the Forge tool.
This proved to be a relatively complex exercise, which stimulated some fixes and improvements by Michel, who is the lead developer of Forge. An unresolved issue, for a future workaround, was the difficulty of validating the references between the contained resources due to the normal replacement of the references by the server.
