FHIR – 40094: proposal to add ingredientSummary:text

  • James: Recommended because it is hard to parse the labels that come in from, for example, USDA (come in as a text field).
  • Decisions:
    • Support addition of ingredientSummary.text.
    • Suggested for the root level rather than backbone level.
    • Indicate that it is a “textural summary of the ingredients in a product.” The idea of saying product label was considered and rejected.
    • Add a comment also: If structured ingredient information is present, the ingredient summary should be consistent.
    • String rather than a markdown.
  • Comment providing these decisions was added to Jira ticket by Jean Duteau.
  • D Nolen is assigned to make the change.

Call adjourned at 2:55 pm.
