Today's Update:

Past Update: 

Kevin - planning terminology development based upon the projects involved in.  They are working on a Roadmap for the vocabulary work to give group a better sense of work underway.  Question: Logica - discussions on a need for a repository so domains could keep their data to prevent overlap.  Logica is interested in Logica domains and FHIR Profiles; other discussions on where to have FHIR Profiles repository.

Work underway on anatomic nomenclature will intersect many areas; would like to collaborate on this. 

Question on Sandboxes: they are doing retrospective queries on codes. Would like a place to test queries and moving forward testing.  

Through MDEpiNet, planning a Think Tank Sessions, two of them which will likely begin in February 2021: coordinated needs of the community for interoperability and practical resources which can be used across the community; would like to include CIC.  CIC Contact: Kevin M. Baskin

Skin and Wound Project (Susan Matney)

Today's Update:

Past Update:

no one available to report today. 

Nursing Knowledge Big Data Initiative; FHIR R4 IG complete.

Podiatry Work Plan to achieve January ballot 2021; is not full ballot. 

Pain Assessment:  Susan has many vendors to standardize it to use it.  Cannot go to ballot until there is a Connectathon.  FHIR Profiles are to be completed by October 30, 2020. 

CIC needs clarifications on Pain Assessment Work. 

Unclear on Connectathon. Excellent Pain Assessment.  They have 8-10 Patient Scales that are in LOINC.  Need to determine if FHIR work is only the area that Pain Assessment can be published. Podiatry wants to implement it in their systems, which does not involve FHIR.
