3a. Project Scope
Update and publish the next release of the VR DAM by map the HL7 v2.6 and FHIR death reporting implementation guides to release 3 of the VR DAM, identifying and reconciling mapping discrepancies, and reflecting the outcome of reconciliation as changes to the VR DAM. Ballot release 4 of the VR DAM as a standard for trail use.
3b. Project Need
The Vital Records Domain Analysis Model (VR DAM) is the authoritative statement of foundational requirements for the design and development of health information exchange standards in HL7 related to vital records information flows. It facilitates consistency in the content and encoding of required vital records data and helps to ensure that HL7 standards developed for the vital records domain are derived from a common authoritative set of workflow and information requirements. The objective of this project is to ensure that the VR DAM continues to reflect the content of published vital records related HL7 specifications.
Since completion of the release 3 of the VR DAM two additional Vital Records related specification have completed their approval cycles. They are:
• HL7 Version 2.6 Implementation Guide: Vital Records Death Reporting, Release 1
• HL7 FHIR® Implementation Guide : Vital Records Mortality and Morbidity Reporting, Release 1
The information content and workflow profiles reflected in these specification need to be added to the VR DAM to ensure complete coverage of the domain. The harmonized terminology bindings from these specifications are especially important to anticipated subsequent work in the VR reporting domain.

STU to Normative
5c. Additional Ballot Info
The ballot of this specification will be the first STU release of the VR reporting DAM. However, STU is not listed among the choices of ballot types. The specification will go to normative when a subsequent STU or Normative specification documents lineage to the VR DAM as part of its specification.
