4US Core errata package out for comment

US Core errata package has been referred to the Co-chair list:

The package is available for review and comment through July 29, 2020 after which any changes based on comments will be applied and the Cross-Project Work Group will review the package in consideration for finalization and publication (CTO letter for errata package) on July 30, 2020.

In review of the US Core errata, there are a few considerations CQI should address as they specifically impact QI-Core. US Core errata will require a QI-Core errata package shortly after US Core errata is published. Note - most should be consistent with QI-Core except FHIR-27082 (1st in list below):

FHIR-27082 Express timing of smoking status observation issued Vs effectiveTime (dateTime)

FHIR-27096 AllergyIntolerance verificationStatus = confirmed (changed from verified)

FHIR-26840 Technical connections, specifically when Shall must be used

FHIR-26363 BMI, pediatric BMI for age - change cardinality

FHIR-25035 Patient-reported medications on the active medication list

FHIR-27542 Added Head Occipital Frontal Circumference Profile (0-36 months)

FHIR-27887 Change from Procedure.occurrence to Procedure.performed (correct in QI-Core)
