CDS Report

Bryn - CDS Hooks passed ballot in Sept 2020 - 5 hooks defined but only patient view hook has maturity level 4 (others level 1). CDS Hooks spec has now been combined with the CDS Service.

CDS Service V1 superceded by CDS Service V2 which passed normative ballot last year but SOA was not a co-sponsor as it was for CDS Service V1. However, CDS group may not maintain this as a separate service. There may be interest in transferring maintenance to SOA of CDS hooks V2. Bryn will discuss with CDS and let us know.

Further update on Thursday
