Assessed tracker items

Row #Tracker IDTracker TitleDate CreatedNotesAccepted as an HTA issueHTA Disposition CategorySuggested Disposition 
1FHIR-12675URL for NCI Thesaurus Code System24 January 2017
  1. The FHIR specification terminologies page has a URL and OID for the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Metathesaurus, but neither for the NCI Thesaurus: identifiers required in the FHIR specification (or perhaps UTG).
  2. While an OID for the NCI Thesaurus appears to exist (2.16.840.1.113883.3.26.1.1) there is not advised http-style URL to assert this code system: System URL for NCI Thesaurus Code System required.
  3. Michael Lawley suggests a URI (which appears to come from the Code System owner) in the OWL file for the NCI Thesaurus.
YesExternal Code System URI for use in FHIR
  • HTA to reach out to NCI to confirm use of the System URI as suggested by Michael Lawley.
  • If confirmed:
    • Update ticket.
    • Document resolution including action to update the FHIR specification.
  • If not confirmed, the new Code System Engagement Process should be followed to obtain an agreed upon System URI for the NCI Thesaurus Code System.
2FHIR-12858Url for MeSH codesystem18 February 2017
  1. A System URI for the US National Library of Medicine (NLM) Medical Subject Headings (MeSH)Code System (link) is required.
  2. An OID for this Code System appears to exist in HL7: 2.16.840.1.113883.6.177 see here
YesExternal Code System URI for use in FHIR
  • The new Code System Engagement Process should be followed to obtain an agreed upon System URI for the MeSH Code System.
3FHIR-12932Code System for Canada Post 2-letter Canadian Provinces & Territories2 March 2017
  1. The Canadian FHIR working group would like to add Code System & ValueSet URIs for Canada Post 2-letter Canadian Provinces & Territories.
YesExternal Code System and Value Set to be added to the FHIR specification
  • Noting the age of this issue, the HTA should find out whether these resources are still required.
  • If so, the parties raising the issue should be invited to an HTA meeting to discuss the requirement and, materially, what the IP restrictions (if any) are for these 2-letter codes.
4FHIR-12999Add usps as a code system referenced in FHIR10 March 2017
  1. A value set which references United States Post Services (USPS) two-letter codes for USA states existed at the time of this issue being raised and up until FHIR ST3 (see here) did not have an underpinning Code System. This issue was requesting that such as Code system be created and added to the FHIR specification.
  2. Subsequently, the referred to value set has been removed it is not present in R4 nor the current build.
YesExternal Code System to be added to the FHIR specification
  • Noting the age of this issue, and the removal of the value set, the HTA should find out whether this code system resource is still required.
  • If so, the parties raising the issue should be invited to an HTA meeting to discuss the requirement and, materially, what the IP restrictions (if any) are for these USPS codes.
5FHIR-13079Add DSM-IV code system and value set URI17 March 2017
  1. A request to add the American Psychiatric Association (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th Edition (DSM-IV) code system URL associated implicit value set URI (of all codes), and reference source (pointing to Wikipedia) to the FHIR specification.
  2. The party raising the issue is suggesting a similar approach as the FHIR specification has taken with DSM V (see here). Where the following has been defined:
    1. Code System URI for DSM-V: http://hl7.org/fhir/sid/dsm5
    2. Reference / Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DSM-5
YesExternal Code System URI (and implicit value set URI of all codes) for use in FHIR
  • Noting the age of this issue, the HTA should find out whether this addition to the FHIR specification (or indeed UTG) is still required.
  • If so, the approach taken for DSM-V was endorsed by the APA, then the HTA can simply confirm with the APA that the suggested approach would be acceptable for DSM-IV.
  • If so, the change can be supported by the HTA. If not, the new Code System Owner Engagement Process should be followed to obtain an agreed upon System URI and implicit value set URI (for all codes).
6FHIR-13111Add ICD-10-CA code system and value set20 March 2017
  1. Request to add the Canadian Revision of ICD-10 (ICD-10-CA) Code System URL and Value Set URI to the FHIR specification.

YesExternal Code System URI (and implicit value set of all codes) for use in FHIR
  • Noting the age of this issue, the HTA should find out whether this addition to the FHIR specification (or indeed UTG) is still required.
  • If so, if the content on the Using ICD-[X] Codes with FHIR page in the FHIR specification is supported by the ICD-10-CA authorities and/or the WHO, then the request may be supported by the HTA.

  3.  In March 2019 a commenter notes that this System URL is required for the electronic Long-Term Services and Supports (eLTSS) FHIR Implementation Guide (IG) which is currently using the URN OID URI.
  4. This requirement has also been raised in the Terminology stream on FHIR Chat (see here)
YesExternal Code System URI for use in FHIR
  • The new Code System Owner Engagement Process should be followed to obtain an agreed upon System URI.
8FHIR-13378Add URI http://www.ada.org/cdt for the American Dental Association CDT dental procedure codes11 May 2017

  1. A request for Code System URIs for multiple coding systems.
YesExternal Code System URI for use in FHIR
  • Noting the age of this issue, the HTA should find out whether a resolution is still required.
  • If so, we should assess the coding systems to determine which
    • Already have Code System URIs
    • Already have tickets/issues raised.
    • Can be addressed through a new ticket/issue.
    • Cannot be supported
    • Are no longer required.
  • The requestor should then be asked to withdraw this ticket and lodge individual tickets issues for those code systems for which a Code System URI can be pursued but the HTA.

YesClarification from Code System owner.
  • This matter may require the HTA to engage with the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to determine whether a Code System URI is appropriate.
  • No labels
