5 min.Welcome, agenda review, meeting minute approvalLaura RappleyeLast week's minutes approved (motion: Craig, second: Riki) 14-0-0
50 min.FHIR Alert Project OverviewRiki Merrick

Riki provided an overview and subsequent discussion of some updates to a DaVinci IG about Alerts

  • IG was originally intended to go to ballot this past Sept., but it was pulled after feedback was provided that FHIR Messaging (using the "message" Bundle type and a MessageHeader resource) should be used
  • Further discussion at the Sept. Connectathon led to a re-work of the IG to include FHIR Messaging
  • The re-worked IG will be limited to unsolicited / push messaging
  • Argonaut's work on FHIR subscriptions will be watched for harmonization opportunities
  • The initial focus will be on an Admit / Discharge use case
  • There are other possible use cases / alert scenarios that will be explored
  • I&M is the Primary Sponsoring WG
  • Will keep other WGs engaged for alert scenario / content ownership – e.g., the project may request that PH co-sponsor since there is a possible PH alert scenario
