    Meeting Minutes from Discussion

    Management Welcome, agenda review, meeting minute approval 
    • No changes to the agenda

    Approval of VRDR FHIR IG - STU1 proposed dot release changes - AMS 15 min

    • VRDR FHIR IG STU 1dot1.pptx
    • Before the holidays, AMS applied updates to the VRDR FHIR IG
    • Motion to publish a new dot release of the IG (AbdulMalik Shakir/Craig Newman 20-0-3)
    • AMS will complete the publication request
    • Based on some trial use, additional, more substantive changes are on the horizon which will likely result in a new STU version (rather than the previously normative ballot)

    Birth Defect Reporting DAM Publication request (Thanh Cheng) - 10 min

    Document to review:

    Publication request: HL7 Domain Analysis Model: Birth Defects Reporting, Release 1

    • The BDR DAM was balloted in Sept 2020
    • Ballot recon was completed and previously approved by the WG
    • The updated document was uploaded to the website in December and the WG was notified
    • No one has raised any concerns with the document
    • Motion to approve the publication request (Thanh Cheng/Sarah Gaunt 27-0-2)
    • Craig and Thanh will work with Melva Peters to get the DAM listed in JIRA so that STU comments can be logged
    • We will set aside time on a future call to walk through the process for adding specs to Jira

    Cancer Electronic Pathology Reporting project proposal (Craig Newman) - 10 min

    PSS-1682 - HL7 FHIR® Implementation Guide: Cancer Electronic Pathology Reporting IN REVIEW

    • A new project proposal has been created for electronic cancer pathology reporting from LIS to EHRs
    • This ultimately will impact PH reporting too
    • Today, much of the pathology report data is not getting to the registries in a coded way
    • This project is focusing on getting the data into the EHR in a more structured way
    • It is expected that many of the same profiles could be used for PH reporting too
    • Will be using US Core and mCode as appropriate
    • O&O is a potential sponsoring WG
    • The project will need to think about how FHIR messaging may or may not be used for exchanging data
      • Task may be important to consider
    • Motion to indicate on the proposal that PH is interested in being involved with the project, potentially as a co-sponsor (Craig Newman/Danny Wise 28-0-0)
    Management Next agenda
    • The MedMorph team wants to add an item to the Feb 4th agenda to discuss content specific IGs
