Submitting WG/Project/Implementer Group

CDS WG, EBMonFHIR Project

Justification and Objectives

This is the third connectathon of the EBMonFHIR project.  Implementers need to work together to confirm ability to share the most basic elements of "Summary of Findings" reports used heavily across systematic reviews and "Baseline Characteristics" reported frequently in original research reports and as clinical profiles of research registries.   The prior connectathon lead to an expansive Evidence Resource to cover multiple needs, but since then implementers found the full resource complicated and we created the Statistic resource instead to provide simpler use-specific implementations.

We will create a Statistic Resource to provide FHIR resources for reporting statistics as a component of reporting external evidence. We hope to achieve demonstration of multiple instances of evidence reporting in this form, and refine descriptions of resource elements to make this easier for usage by a growing community of implementers.

This track will use R4 version of FHIR.

Clinical input requested (if any)

Not needed, but clinicians are welcome and clinical input has helped shape the Statistic Resource to be more relevant for supporting clinical care.

System Roles

Evidence Reporter - Transmit a summary of findings from medical research

Evidence Consumer - Receive a summary of findings from medical research

Scenarios

Share Summary of Findings data between two evidence reporting systems

Action: The Evidence Reporter will transmit a Summary of Findings table as a single Statistic Resource and the Evidence Consumer will receive it and reproduce the Summary of Findings table in their system's format.

Precondition: None

Success Criteria: The data displayed in the Summary of Findings results in the format of the Evidence Consumer is consistent with the results of the Evidence Reporter.

Bonus point: Creation of Group resources and EvidenceVariable resources to codify the Population, Intervention, Comparator and Outcome concepts associated with the Statistic Resource.

Share Baseline Characteristics/Clinical Profile data between two evidence reporting systems

Action: The Evidence Reporter will transmit a summary of baseline characteristics of a cohort as a single Evidence Resource (NoncomparativeEvidence Profile) and the Evidence Consumer will receive it and reproduce it in their system's format.

Precondition: None

Success Criteria: The data displayed in the format of the Evidence Consumer is consistent with the results of the Evidence Reporter.

Bonus point: Creation of Group resources and EvidenceVariable resources to codify the Population, Intervention, Comparator and Outcome concepts associated with the Statistic Resource.

TestScript(s)

None expected, but JSON Tree Writer will be available to facilitate resource construction.
