  • content approved for ballot (motion: Keith, second: Sarah) 23-0-0
VR DAM Publication Request Approval (AMS) - 10 min.
BDR DAM Ballot Recon (Thanh Cheng) - 10 min.
  • comment # 18 from Genny Luensman about adding ODH elements for "Mother" class
    • "Mother" is a specialization of "Parent" (from VR DAM) but with a few additional attributes
    • "Decedent" class (from VR DAM) already has "longest-held" occupation, but this request is to add "current occupation" for a living "Mother"
    • "Parent" seems the more appropriate place to add these ODH elements
    • AMS and Cindy are OK with updating the "Parent" class in the VR DAM
      • will move forward with current VR DAM publication for now – there will likely be additional updates needed in the near future (e.g., resulting from work that will be done for the VR Common FHIR Profile Libraries)
        • possible balloting in Sept. 2021
    • disposition "Referred and tracked" (to VR DAM) approved (motion: Craig, second: Genny) 21-0-0
  • comment #s 7, 19, 20 request adding biological father
    • this was not specifically called out in the BDR DAM because its inherited from the VR DAM
    • disposition "Considered for future use" (in case BDR-specific specialization for "Father" is required by jurisdictions) approved (motion: Craig, second: AMS) 21-0-0
