HL7 Version 3 Domain Analysis Model: Diet and Nutrition Orders, Release 2
Description of Ballot Document
From existing Product Brief: (note this is too long)
Standards for the electronic transmission and exchange of nutrition orders including information on oral diets, enteral nutrition (tube feeding and infant formula) and oral nutritional supplements, along with food allergies, food intolerances and food preference information are required to safely provide inpatients or residents with nutritionally appropriate foods. To improve the interoperability of diet and nutrition order information across the continuum of care, it is critical that health care providers and sending and receiving system vendors have a clear understanding of the components involved in ordering, preparing and providing meal trays, formula feedings, and nutritional supplements to patients and residents. The purpose of the diet and nutrition orders domain analysis model is to describe the required data and flow of information needed for the development of other HL7 products in the nutrition domain such as nutrition order clinical messages, FHIR resources and profiles, and Clinical Document Architecture nutrition templates using structured data. Analysis Model informs the ongoing work on Nutrition FHIR resources. This release will apply the learnings from DSTU, and proceed to a Normative document.

Major Changes since last Ballot:
Release 2 of the Domain Analysis Model covers Diet and Nutrition Orders is focused on in-patient settings, and we are requesting that it be reaffirmed while Release 3 is completed. Release 3 will expand the scope to cover Nutrition Care in general and include ambulatory care.
From most recent NIB:
These conceptual models are required to form the foundation for diet and nutritional standards, such as FHIR, that are an important part of the medical nutrition therapy. This information is used by software applications to support the actions performed by nutrition professionals in the course of nutrition care.
