Professional Associations that bring together competing entities, such as HL7, are subject to strict scrutiny under applicable antitrust laws. HL7 recognizes that the antitrust laws were enacted to promote fairness in competition and, as such, supports laws against monopoly and restraints of trade and their enforcement. Each individual participating in HL7 activities, regardless of venue, is responsible for knowing the contents of and adhering to the HL7 Antitrust policy as stated in §05.01 of the Governance and Operations Manual (GOM).

FHIR-39442 - Getting issue details... STATUS
|Converting ImmunizationRecommendation to ImmunizationRequest|
Any further discussion on this?
Nathan has started a visualization of the interaction between resources. Can share today for feedback/discussion.
Need to get this on a future CDS call. Get Bryn on the call as well. May need to document the movement from ImmunizationRecommendation to MedicationRequest. Need to present a visualization to CDS, and eventually a written recommendation. Need to show how the resources fit together and interact with other concepts. There is a clinical reasoning module, maybe we need an immunization module that talks about how these things go together.
Nathan will put changes in presentation and visualization and send to Craig for sharing with other groups such as Pharmacy and CDS.
Based on last conversation and further thoughts, Nathan updated diagram on 12/09:
|Smart Health Links||Technical meetings are winding down, now waiting for implementers to make progress. Maybe one more call after Thanksgiving and there is no agenda. Only seeing what is going to happen.|
Any further discussion on this?
Discussion about what level of effort the community is going to do in this. Great potential with this project, but a lot of effort.
Another product offering for scheduling, coming out in the next week. Not sure how FHIR might fit into that.
|Community Feedback on Master Provider Data Project|
Presenter: Roua El Kalach
Actively trying to lay all the data sets on top of each other. So that the unique providers can be matched between the data sets.
What do you consider who is a provider? Any provider who could be getting vaccinations from state and federal allocations. What about providers who give private vaccinations? Probably not, but we want their data. How much of this is routine and how much is covid-based? This is for all vaccines. Covid gave us additional data. Leveraging all data sets.
The challenge in many states is whether to issue PINS to each store front or to the whole pharmacy as a company? (CVX, Walgreens, or each store?) States have gone one way and then the other. Pharmacy can have a federal and a state pin. Different PINS where used for different purposes. This is a very tricky problem. Having the same problem with NPI's. Some physicians can have 3 NPIs!
Sometimes we can match, strongly or weakly.

We want to create a CDC Standard Master file, essentially a crosswalk that we share with everybody. Trying to create this for our providers.
New CDC assigned ID will not replace current pins. This will standardized the information.
What if we publish a crosswalk of provider data?
