Public Health Work Group - review Immunization CDS FHIR IG

Craig Newman (Altarum)

  • Request for time on 5/17 from Immunization CDS FHIR IG project regarding:

    • Expected timelines for getting a set of R4-based QI-Core profiles developed (Immunization will likely want to base any profiles in their IG on QI-Core profiles)
    • The development of a new ImmunizationEvaluation QI-Core profile (this is a new resource in R4)
    • The development of a new “redacted” QI-Core patient profile for use when the use case doesn’t need (or desire) sending some or all of the patient demographics
  • Craig gave an introduction of the ImmunizationEvaluation 
  • Floyd asked Craig how do you see this ImmunizationEvaluation differs from the Immunization resource itself
  • Craig noted that they are planning to base this off R4. Immunization is the event of giving the vaccine. However, starting from R4,  it developed an ImmunizationEvaluation resource, it is comparison of protocol and evaluates if a vaccine given is valid or invalid.  It references an ImmunizationEvent that is Immunization resource. Purpose of ImmunizationEvaluation is to say does an Immunization count as valid according to guideline. 
  • Craig indicated that there are two asks here:
    • There is not an QI-Core profile for ImmunizationEvaluation. QI-Core currently has Immunization and ImmunizationRecommendation. The ask is to whether CQI WG would like to collaborate to develop an ImmunizationEvaluation QI-Core profile in R4
    • QI-Core Patient profile "must support or removed" for some attributes, e.g., patient identifier, name, gender, etc.
  • ImmunizationEvaluation is result of the immunization recommendation/forecast from CDS that based on Patient and Immunization resources. 
  • Would be part of the QI-Core profiles and this project would reference. 
  • Would consider develop ImmunizationEvaluation off the base FHIR
QUICKClaude Nanjo - Update

Claude presented QUICK Status Update. Refer to the slide deck for details. 

Claude asked what challenges and improvements the WG would like to provide comment about.

Claude plan to present to the WG again in couple weeks. 

QRDA I STU5.1 STU comment


  • "PRCN" is a valid HL7ActRelationshipType code. However, CDA R2 constrained allowable HL7ActRelationshipType code to be a small subset of codes from HL7ActRelationshipType concept domain for entryRelationship, which does not include "PRCN". Request to re-open the STU comment and propose to change to use a generic "REFR" instead. 
Post-phoned due to meeting had to adjourn
