ANSI Anti-Trust Policy:  Professional Associations, such as HL7, which bring together competing entities are subject to strict scrutiny under applicable antitrust laws. HL7 recognizes that the antitrust laws were enacted to promote fairness in competition and, as such, supports laws against monopoly and restraints of trade and their enforcement. Each individual participating in HL7 meetings and conferences, regardless of venue, is responsible for knowing the contents of and adhering to the HL7 Antitrust Policy as stated in §05.01 of the Governance and Operations Manual (GOM).

Catalog Ballot Reconciliation Spreadsheet

Note: We need to look at the spreadsheet for any missing dispositions.

On the November 19, 2020 OO Main call we noted the following: 

  • Order Catalog Block Vote V251_IG_LRI_R1_D5_2020SEP_consolidated.xls
    • Was sent out on Feb 12 – have not gotten any pull requests; turns out this is really the request to publish the spreadsheet, but not planning on going to ballot in Jan 2021
    • Motion to approve upload of the spreadsheet Lorraine Constable, Rob Hausam – further discussion: there are some Affirmatives without votes still, but that is acceptable – against: 0, Abstain: 1, in favor: 11

FHIR-26674 - Getting issue details... STATUS

FHIR-40765 - Getting issue details... STATUS

Today's discussion:

  • asNeeded and asNeededFor are serving different purposes
    • asNeeded - no criteria is specified
    • asNeededFor - describes the criteria that needs to be met in order to take as needed
  • code element in Timing - includes BID, TID, etc. and PRN sometimes is included in this list (but requires change in FHIR - to the value set)
  • Updated the proposed disposition in FHIR-26674 for review by a larger group
  • Add to WGM call on Wednesday Q1 with Patient Care (John H. can join us)

We will resume the Catalog IG ballot reconciliation next week
