Minutes for 01/07/2020 meeting added to confluence on 01/21/2020


Mary Kay started the discussion regarding member ID having multiple coverages. Bob stated that there was an issue with the "Identifier" in FHIR not allowing for multipole coverages. Per Loyd Mckenzie, that is not valid in FHIR. As example, the same member ID cannot return dental and medical coverage in FHIR. FM will open a jury ticket with FHIR since this issue needs to be addressed.

Project health-Inventory of projects we need to address, and the actions we're planning on taking.

  1. Vote on VBC Cross Paradigm health story- 

    Lisa or Lenel send us the final reconciled spreadsheet for VBC Health Story.
    We are going to take a final vote so we have it documented in the minutes next Tuesday on the PIE call.
    Looks like it was finalized in the Jan 2019 San Antonio WG meeting, but the final vote is not documented in minutes.
    So, if you can forward the final spreadsheet and final artifact to be published (the Guide) we will take it from there.  Russ will assist with publishing and draft the publication request (unless you would like to do that).  Then we will have to get approval from the work group.
  2. Guidance on Implementation of Standard Electronic Attachments for Health Care Transactions (ACP - Attachment Collaboration Project) - Durwin -negatives to resolve, Floyd and an employee that left the company and no longer HL7 attendee, were withdrawn.  Ask for publication not needed as on WEDI.  Note in ballot spreadsheet that sent out withdraw spreadsheet.  Close - let Dave Hamil know this is now not an active project. Russ motioned to close the project, Mary Kay seconded. Mike Cabral abstained. VOTE: 19-1-0
