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).

  • Workflow Topics
    • Review the simplified version of the Potassium Workflow created last week
    • Continue with the Potassium Workflow 
    • Slide 7 and 8 - Potassium Workflow Step 5 - Lab collected by the Provider (Workflow Slides)
      • How is the Order (ServiceRequest) and specimen linked back up?
        • CollectTask for Specimen, completion of the collection task will trigger a transport task to get the specimen(s) to the lab
        • Specimen resource should have the information the lab needs to link them
        • There Specimen may be sent from another location (i.e., not an in-house collection)
        • Standard Workflow
          • Order is sent to the lab (from the provider or Patient Service Center (PSC))
          • The specimen is collected (in house or external)
          • Order is updated with the specimen information
          • The specimen is sent to the lab to run the test 
          • Specimen Information needs to be sent to the ServiceRequest Provider and the Receiving Clinical  Laboratory that is performing the test
            • Still not sure how this information is updated on the ServiceRequest
        • Added a slide for 2 scenarios – one for when the specimen is available with the order; and one when the specimen is collected separately from the order.
          • Added a Transport and Communication box for discussion next time
          • We will fix the slides next time to get them arranged more clearly
        • Robert Dieterle we need Bob's help to understand how the resources are being updated with the specimen information; Marti to send email to Bob.
