Implementation-Related Listserves

  • fhir-cri - FHIR-based Clinical Reasoning Implementers - The purpose of this list serve is for discussions and information sharing among implementers of FHIR-based clinical reasoning content (including CQF-on-FHIR and QI Core/QUICK). Requests for updates or modifications to existing standards will still require entry of issues on the respective HL7 STU sites. The CQI Workgroup provides this service to enable communication among implementers.
  • hqmf-qrda - HQMF-QRDA Implementers - The purpose of this list serve is for discussions and information sharing among implementers of HL7 standards used for clinical quality measurement and reporting, specifically HQMF and QRDA. Requests for updates or modifications to existing standards will still require entry of issues on the respective HL7 STU sites. Specific issues about standards and about individual measures should still be addressed through the ONC Jira process. The CQI Workgroup provides this service to enable communication among implementers.
