Milestones

Ballot comment review
  • Inviting SAMSHA for next Friday's call, so we'll return to that issue requiring follow up next week

#24114

  • Can you ask for a bundle?
    • Only if you have the ID for it
    • Can search for message bundles and document bundles because they have mandated root resources - can chain through to search in contents of message header or composition
    • No mechanism to search for bundles that contain arbitrary stuff
    • We could define our own search criteria
    • Pure RESTful perspective, we can't assume bundle exists
  • RIght now, we're trying to do a RESTful GET - the way we're doing it isn't giving us what we're looking for
  • Change approach to use new operation endpoint to return 'current' ClaimResponse bundle


  • Process question
    • We proposed disposition in this weekly call
    • Block votes take place in HL7 WG (in this case, Financial Management)
      • Can ask to have an issue removed from the block vote if not comfortable with resolution
    • Change gets applied to IG
    • Put out notice to request withdrawal of negative comments
    • If submitted a negative comment and not happy with the change implemented, can choose not to withdraw it - this could impact whether ballot passes for publication


#24174

  • Need to discuss this item in joint Financial Management/ PPIE workgroup meeting and include Lloyd McKenzie
  • Commenter is saying that we've had to introduce modifier extensions into this IG to deal with fact that we're not conveying the prior authorization request and response cohesively - can respond in bits and pieces - maybe the resource needs to be redesigned
  • You could ask for one or more items to be authorized - answer could authorize all, or possibly add another line item to the list, or partially authorize some but not all the line items that were requested (e.g., approve 2 out of 3) - can be modified from the requestor or responder side - need an information model to support this

#24186

  • Will change wording as proposed

#24269

  • Comment will be withdrawn

#24271

  • Approach to provider systems finding out status of prior authorization request:
    • Poll
    • Subscribe and go retrieve the result
  • Comment withdrawn

#24272

  • Performing provider needs ability to view and/or update the prior authorization, and ordering provider may not know specifically who needs to access and/or modify
  • If provider knows the patient ID, the prior authorization repsonse ID, and they know where to query, then provider will have the right to see the prior authorization - need a more secure model?
  • Defer until providers/payers are on the call to provide feedback
