ITS RDF Teleconference 25-May-2021
Present: David_Booth (Yosemite Project), Brian_Pech (Kaiser), Vassil Peytchev (Epic), Alberto Llanes (Federal Electronic Health Records Modernization (FEHRM)), Yvonne Cole (FEHRM)
Quorum met: Yes
Chair: Brian Pech
Topic: FHIR/RDF Update
Slides for today's update: https://tinyurl.com/fhirrdf2021-01
David: These are the same slides we used for January's update, except for one very important change: we've now received an R01 grant to help support the FHIR RDF work, so we're now ready to continue this work. The FHIR RDF work had been paused for many months, both because of an emergency diversion of focus to COVID-19 activities, and due to a delay in the release of the R01 grant.
David: Two main things that we now plan to focus on: 1. improving the FHIR RDF representation, to make it easier to use, based on experience we have gained over the past few years; and 2. leveraging new features available in JSON-LD 1.1 that will make conversion between FHIR JSON and FHIR RDF easier to define and maintain.
FHIR RDF teleconferences will resume in the next few weeks. An announcement will go to the ITS list, W3C HCL list, and FHIR chat
