FHIR QA criteria

Thu Q5 - Facilitator's Roundtable

Harmonization Dates

  • July 11th-12th
  • Initial Proposals: June 16th
  • Final Proposals: July 7th
  • QA of updated vocabulary: July 23rd
  • Publish of new vocabulary: July 30th

Future of Harmonization

  • Universal Terminology Governance Process project
    • move to a continuous vocabulary updating cycle
    • independent model unified across all products
    • mid-2018
    • any contentious issues could be held in-person at the Roundtable session at the next WGM or in an ad-hoc meeting

Vocabulary Happenings

  • Publishing of Vocabulary
    • we have been publishing the 2014 vocabulary and no one has noticed
    • Lynn is going back to the 2014 vocabulary and re-applying the changes since then
  • Large Harmonization Vocabulary Items
    • international patient summary implementation guide will have a couple of big ones
    • Structured Documents will have various proposals
    • Public Health will have a small one
    • Orders & Observations will have some v2
  • FHIR Vocabulary
    • FHIR Required and Extensible vocabulary should be grandfathered into the HL7 vocabulary repository

V2 Happenings

  • Conformance - working on a tool with NIST to elevate the conformance rules out of the specific versions and to create a standard for the creation of implementation guides

V3 Happenings

  • Future of V3 discussion on Monday - will be canvassing the workgroups as to the state of their v3 products - reaffirm, withdraw, reballot, any new?
  • M&M V3 Products - RIM is moving to periodic balloting, Datatypes R2 will be reaffirmed, Core Principles R2 will be re-reconciled and reballoted. CMETs will be reballoted.
  • Identifiers - FHIR identifiers have an URI but we can't send that in V3 and thus CDA can't handle it. May need a Datatypes R1/R2 errata to allow for URIs to be sent in V3/CDA - and may need to raise this in ISO21090.

CDA Happenings

  • TSC has approved the CDA Management Group - operational by September WGM. Will identify the lead methodology group for CDA.
  • CDA R2.1 went through Draft for Comment ballot. Normative ballot in September balloting cycle

FHIR Happenings

  • M&M turned quality criteria into a readable format
  • FHIR Strategic Priorities will be published shortly
    • focus is on maturity, quality, usability, and stabilization
  • FHIR scheduling may lead to changes in the room reservation system
  • FHIR's ballot will be mixed and some will be normative. FHIR R4 will have a core of normative content

Future of Roundtable

  • will schedule this for September WGM
  • add CIMI and communicate that they need to be here
  • publish the agenda beforehand so people know what we're discussing
