Need to document the process of how we put new entries, or update entries to table 396. Current process is to submit a V2.x proposal through the HL7 website.-Proposed solution is that every time a terminology is registered in the OID it would automatically go into Table 396 I V2.x.

ITEM: 1030

Change cardinality of MSG Data Type in v2.XML specification, discovered item, from e-mail from Alberto Sáez Torres

Opened: 20051129 
Closed: 20070726
Assigned:  Scott Robertson
  • 20051129, Tony Julian, New
    • In the MSG data type description (message type, used in MSH-9) it is said that all the components (message code, message trigger, message sctructure) are required, but the schema marks all of them as optional.

So, the schema should be change from:

<xsd:complexType name="MSG">
   <xsd:element ref="MSG.1" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1"/>
   <xsd:element ref="MSG.2" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1"/>
   <xsd:element ref="MSG.3" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1"/>

To :

<xsd:complexType name="MSG">
   <xsd:element ref="MSG.1" />
   <xsd:element ref="MSG.2" />
   <xsd:element ref="MSG.3" />
  • 20051129, Tony Julian, V2
    • pending further information
  • 20051129, Alberto Sáez Torres
    • Actually, the MSG-data type is described in section 2.A.44 of Chapter 2A, Page 2-175, but the error is located in the XSD and DTD files for Version 2.5. The XSD affected file is “datatypes.xsd” and the DTD file is “datatypes.dtd”. This is the reason why I’ve CC-ed this message to the XML list.
    • (According to the MSG data type, the line from datatype.dtd): <!ENTITY % MSG "(MSG.1?,MSG.2?,MSG.3?)"> Should be changed (in my opinion) to <!ENTITY % MSG "(MSG.1,MSG.2,MSG.3)">
  • 20060508 InM WGM San Antonio: Frank Oemig, open
    • 20060508 InM San Antonio: Remains open
  • 2006-09-12 No update – Frank not present.
  • 2007-01-08 InM WGM San Diego, Mon Q4
    • discussed and agreed to the changes to both the schema and dtd.
    • question: who is the 'editor' of the schema? an XML SIG perl script against an extract of Frank's database. Frank will investigate where the correction needs to be made.
    • We need an errata for v2.5 xml and verify the correction is in place in the v2.6 xml.
  • 2007-05-01 InM WGM Köln – Scott to make sure is moved to ITS SIG
  • 20070702: Telcon : Scott has been reminded.
  • 2007-07-26: Scott (finally) sent this item to ITS for follow-up. Moved to Close Action Item list.

ITEM: 1063

Opened: 20060508

Determine what kind/type of vocab used within the datatype specs should be subject to harmonization and/or ballot time fixing.

  • 20060508, new, Grahame, Abstract Data Types
    • There have been DT proposals (+vocab used within DT) during harmonization. Normative DT spec, methodology changes lead to new releases of DT spec. Changes to vocab may need to be more flexible (e.g. done at harmonization, be applicable to last normative spec) than structural DT changes. Only certain vocabs, e.g. compression method, UCUM units, mediatype, currency. Name part type is NOT in this category and is fixed at ballot time.

Proposal For Data Type Vocabulary Management

  • 20060913 WGM: Grahame. 3 types of domains in data type definitions. Externally maintained, Embedded in XML ITS, and “normal domains”.
    • Proposal:
      • Normal Value Sets are subject to Harmonization and will be marked as such in the Data Type standard. These are not subject to ballot review & approval.
      • XML Embedded Value Sets and Null Flavor changes are review & recommended by harmonization and subject to ballot review & acceptance before they can be used.
      • External-maintained Value Sets will be marked as such in the Data Type standard.
      • Will update language to distinguish between domain and value set.
    • Moved Jane Curry/Andy van Heusen. Discussion. Vote 14-0-5 Passed
    • OPEN until edits made to document by Grahame
  • 20070714 - done as part of datatypes R2

  • 20061222, Rene, created wiki page.

ITEM: 1082

Opened 20060619 Telcon

Is use of ID/IDRef model derived?

  • 20060619, Joseph Waller, new, XML ITS?
    • ask Lloyd to elaborate on how using ID/IDRef – model derived or not? and if so (or not) how does this end up in schema?.
    • 20060828, Rene: open. XML SIG has studied the use of XML ID/IDREF for use by the ITS to minimize the size of messages on the wire. Based on the outcome of that they will move the motion during teh upcoming WGM that ID/IDREF can't bse used within the ITS (because of technical implementation reasons as will be stated in the motion). Joseph's question appears to be wider in scope however, he wants to know if the samentic concept of ID/IDREF exists within the RIM, much as the concept of a mixed content datatype also exists within the abstract datatype specification.
  • See Use of ID/IDREF for details.

Include RealmCode in root classes of interactions [MCCI R2]

Opened: 20070111 
Assigned to: 
Closed: 20070918
  • 20070111 MnM adopted a motion (shown here with comments, copied from Constraints on infrastructureRoot attributes) on
    • 2006-08-04: RealmCode should be an element which remains within the control of committees. InM should include it for message types rooted in Transmission classes and CDA should include it in the root Document class. Other committees should only expose it if they have an explicit use-case realmCode must be specifically asserted by the committee. We recommend that INM include this for transmission.
  • In the context of the new Wrappers R2 work, this probably means including it in the "Conversation" Act, part of the new ControlAct wrapper.

ITEM 2040

create discussion paper on the reuse of the IHE Actor principle

opened:  2007-05-03
assigned: Mark T, Rene
  • 20070503 InM WGM Köln: to create a discussion paper that explores the adoption of the concept of Actor (as defined by IHE) as part of the dynamic model to describe the semantics of Receiver Responsibilities (the Interface Contract).
    • “Actor” is confusing because of UML, redefine “Application Role”:
    • Application Role = set of supported Interactions, plus their respective Receiver Responsibilities (i.e. direct receiver responsibility, not conversation style). The set of supported interactions may include optionally supported interactions. is uniquely linked to a set of Application Roles. There may be no overlap in terms of supported interactions by the ARs.

  • 20070604 INm Telcon: Rene: no update.
  • 20070813: closed. Similar concepts were introduced during the dynamic model meeting in Boston.


create a discussion paper related to replacement of InteractionId by other attributes

opened:  2007-05-03
assigned: Joe W, Mark T
closed:  20070918
  • 20070503 InM WGM Köln: to create a discussion paper that explores the option of introducing StaticModelID and TriggerEventID as explicit mandatory components in our message structure. This would replace the mandatory Interaction.Id as present in current messages.
  • 20070523: Joe:
    • The Trigger Event should be decoupled from the Interaction Id. To successfully create a SOA (re-usable service) the following evolution of a Service should be anticipated and encouraged:
      1. Locate a requirement / use case.
      2. Create the service to fulfil the requirement using flexible SOA technologies in an decoupled manner.
      3. The service is now de-coupled from the requirement allowing it to be used in new and unpredicted ways.
    • Therefore the label given to that service (the Interaction ID) should not be tightly coupled to the trigger event as this restricts it's use or invalidates the interactions ID. The Trigger Event should be an optional attribute of the interaction. This should also apply to conversation data.
  • 20070604 INM telcon: need a discussion of pros and cons, the bove isn't quite what we're looking for.
  • 20070918 WGM Tues Q2 – consensus that this was discussed in the conversation of 2032, with the conclusion that InM would like to introducing static model id and trigger event id as separate components. On the agenda for Tues Q3 joint with SOA and ITS. Discussion paper (paragraph) will be available for discussion in Thur Q1 dynamic model session. CLOSED
