Meeting Notes

WGM recap and questions

Outstanding action items were discussed.

WG Health Metrics: TC said the key follow-up action is to confirm engagement of LOINC/11073 in relation to SHIELD and ONC-1 comments. MV said that she was actively engaged with SHIELD within FDA and that she and Kosta can help to coordinate the SHIELD activities within this group.

Verify CEN 251 group number: TC confirmed this is CEN 251 WG 2. Alpo Arvi is the convenor.

Device Alert FHIR Resource Proposal and project timescale: MR said that he had sent an email to confirm that he will join the meeting next week.

Maturity of Device Metric: MV said that an aim should be to move Device Metric (and other resources) up to 'normative' for R6. TC added that implementations and testing will be needed, MV commented that there is a need to synchronize Device metric with other Device Module resources. The need s to be able to implement FHIR 'device-ready' solutions. R6 is about 2 years away, possibly more, and a the very soonest might be out at the end of 2024.


TC: said that there was a presentation in Q4, Thursday. TC did an update for WG 2.  He suggested a proposal concept, circulated to the HL7 community to scope.  TC then ran through the presentation and described the collaboration between ISO and HL7. Todd said that the presentation had been well received by WG 2. He went on to list actions coming out of the New Orleans meeting (FHIR CAT) viz.

  • to look at the proposal (PHN)
  • start with a White Paper
  • show how this fits in across HL7 IGs
  • create a robust community

Todd asked for approval to go ahead. JD asked if we were thinking of bringing in clinical guidance or confining it to self-management of health. TC reviewed the 'Personicle' (Personal health Chronicle. MR commented that other WGs might help by participating in the work on the White Paper.
