TO DO:  Update this page!

This page provides a summary of the Devices On FHIR endeavors, both proposed projects (PSS Proposals), Approved proposals that are being formalized (PSS on Confluence forms), and active fully approved projects.

NOTE:  Each project will have its own set of Confluence pages - the information below is solely to support tracking and project management by the HL7 DEV WG team.

1277FHIR for Device Data Reporting (original project from 2016 August)

DEV-1277Devices on FHIR2021-03-22 -  Complete current project in 2021 / early 2022 with publication of PHD & PoCD IGs.  Successor is 1660 below
1643FHIR IG for Device Information Client ApplicationsPSSinJ-1643PSSinC-1643

2021-03-22 - Need for this PSS is greater than ever, but need a Project Lead to take it forward.

2020-09-22 - Will advance based on related work for the 2020-11 FHIR DevDays presentations.

Gemini SDPi+FHIR

2021-03-22 - Project PSS needs to be completed BUT is also currently in Project Insight (!!!);  For 3 Year Plan, identify the deliverables & schedule for '21 & '22 especially.  NOTE:  That the 1652 (deprecated) deliverabls are integrated into this project

2020-09-22 - Reviewed & updated PSS form and approved at WG level.

PSS Accepted; drafting confluence form

2020-09-22 - Merge this project / TR's into project 1545.

1658FHIR for Device Data ReportingPSSinJ-1658

PSS Proposal in DRAFT stage; not submitted for review; Given #1660 ... is this draft PSS still needed?

2020-09-22 - WG agreed to depreciate this PSS proposal (initial draft)


1660Devices on FHIR - Point-of-Care Device Implementation Guide (2nd Edition)PSSinJ-1660

2021-03-22 - Need to advance the PSSinC Confluence form and advance through approval process, which will include deliverables & milestones for Dr. Hurrell's 3 Year Plan!  

PSS Accepted; Starting PSS form

2020-09-22 - Discussed at WGM; Chris Courville will initiate creation of the PSSinC-1660 page and form

1615Current Gemini MDI project

In Project Insight but never completed the PSS process; that has now been restarted (2022.03.07) via PSS-1980 in Jira ... TBD if the project stays 1980 and 1615 disappears or if the Jira item is updated to 1615.

DoF Alerting - Project Considerations

As the DoF team continues to advance work on the definition of a new FHIR Resource:  DeviceAlert, the question of an HL7 project home (PSS) has been discussed but never finalized.  This section is a starter home for that discussion on   weekly HL7 DEV  meeting, but may get migrated elsewhere when appropriate.  

PSSScopeUpside / Why?Downside / Why Not?Discussion / Rationale
1660DoF PoCD IG (2nd Edition)Already a topic in the scope; project already on the booksLost in the mix; with a new FHIR resource, the development timeline may be challenged; 2nd edition project currently includes "alerting" support, but also waveforms, SDPi requirements, SDC mapping, etc. 
1615Gemini SDPi+FHIR Provides a clear HL7 deliverable to the project; aligned with the SDPi-A profileLost in the mix; why alerting vs. other project deliverables?See also PSS-1980 in Jira (note in table above).  Project is currently focused primarily on IHE profiles & CA with references / profiles of HL7 only;  NOTE:  No clear means of addressing formal standards projects
newDoF AlertingFocused topic; development trajectory w/ new FHIR resource is decoupled from other projects; may be easier to profile in the SDPi-A  profile's FHIR gateway; lay approach for possible later "control" topicOverhead of an additional project; alerting info possibly in multiple places (specs)SDPi-A + PoCD FHIR IG can both reference and profile this IG.  

Discussion Notes

  HL7 DEV Weekly

  1. Reviewed the table above with options
  2. Discussion:
    1. Balancing between project/deliverable multiplicity (and purity) vs. project/deliverable simplicity (and potential complexity)
    2. Focus on making it as easy as possible for the implementer / IG user ... a "Start Here" approach 
    3. OR you have to first understand the foundational PoCD IG capabilities as well
    4. Given the new FHIR resource in the core specification - DeviceAlert - it is good for those wanting to understand how alerting is working
    5. DeviceAlert would be a primary deliverable for the <new> project 
  3. DECISION:  
    1. ACTION( John Rhoads  Todd Cooper ) Draft a new Device Alerting PSS in Jira for initial DEV WG review   (per the discussion above)
    2. Motion:  Brian / Stefan ... motion approved unanimously
