Meeting Minutes from Discussion

Decision Link(if not child)


Professional Associations, such as HL7, which bring together competing entities are subject to strict scrutiny under applicable antitrust laws. HL7 recognizes that the antitrust laws were enacted to promote fairness in competition and, as such, supports laws against monopoly and restraints of trade and their enforcement. Each individual participating in HL7 meetings and conferences, regardless of venue, is responsible for knowing the contents of and adhering to the HL7 Antitrust Policy as stated in §05.01 of the Governance and Operations Manual (GOM)

Minutes for both meetings approved by consensus

US Core - Publication Plan

Initiate pre-publication review of US Core version 6.0 today (April 13) with review by FMG on April 26, and full CGP WG approval with publication request on the April 27 full CGP WG call.

Starting pre-publication review today. Will need to approve by CGP prior to FMG's call on April 26.  Therefore, we will accept a motion to create an eVote to start on April 20 (after 1 week review) and end by April 24 assuming Quorum is met. Jean indicated that quorum represents 90% of the number of folks on this call - total on this call is 12 - 90% is 10.  With approval by April 24 the publication can be approved before the FMG call on April 26.

  • Motion to approve evote: Brett Marquard/Eric Haas: 
    • Discussion prior to vote: Eric notes that there are a few QA review issues to resolve but that the review period can begin now. QA is the change log to confirm the team accomplished that to which they agreed. QA issues should be sent to Eric and Brett via email and added to the existing Jira ticket, not necessary to log a new tracker. Linda Michaelsen asked about readability issue - especially for EncounterDiagnosis  Profile with invariants - need to scroll to the top of the page to understand the invariants.
