Agenda Item

Meeting Minutes from Discussion

  1. Welcome, agenda review, meeting minute approval, announcements - 5 min
MethodologyVital Record DAM, R4 ballot readiness and submission approval (AMS)
  • The Vital Records DAM is still scheduled for the May ballot
    • It will be Release 4
    • It includes 3 important enhancements:
      • The death reporting IGs have been mapped to the DAM and are not fully represented in the DAM
        • Some vocab harmonization was done
      • Moving from Informative to STU (and ultimately normative)
      • Some minor changes to accommodate future inclusion of birth defect reporting into the DAM
  • It's been out for WG review and AMS has incorporated feedback he has received
  • Motion to approve ballot readiness (AbdulMalik Shakir/Cindy Bush  25-0-2)
MethodologyVital Records Birth/Fetal Death reporting: Approve publication of V2.6 "dot" release (Mead)
  • Remember that content being circulated for publication approval needs to be posted to the members only site at HL7 rather than being sent out to the listserv or put on Confluence
  • The STU period of the v2.6 birth and fetal death IG has expired
  • Mead has made some update and circulated the updated document to the work group 2 weeks ago
  • We will review the publication request next week before going the v2 Management Group
MethodologyPublic health impact of final rules (Craig)
  • HL7 is holding a member webinar on the impact of the ONC and CMS final rules including content on the impact on Public Health and the COVID-19 crisis
  • If you have thoughts on how the final rules impact Public Health, please send them to Craig in the next few days
MethodologyDiscussion of potential updates to V2.8.2 Immunization IG (Alean)
  • From Alean (pre-meeting)
    • The intent of this paper is to show the underlying unity between the IHE TF approach and the SOA approach; but it encapsulates IHE concepts in a way that I felt might be useful for this discussion.  Here is a link to the paper:

      • The Service Consumer is typically the initiator of the exchange (eg, the EHR who is submitting a VXU message or requesting a patient history/forecast)
      • IHE Services are often broken down into Identity (eg PIX and PDQ) and Document (content) services
        • This allows identity resolution to be done once
      • HL7 IG message profiles can be mapped to similar services in the IHE diagrams
  • Gap analysis between the HL7 IG and the IHE profiles may be a good starting point
  • Discussion will continue

From Alean (pre-meeting)

I found some of the original drawings as well – see attached.  I modified some of them to replace the services of the standard XDS example with the familiar HL7 V2 messages in the immunization 2.8.2 IG.  I feel the common elements of ADT and QBP messages provide the opportunity to leverage the enterprise system installed base of IHE PIX and PDQ profiles.
