Review and prepare for joint call with ArB
There was a long discussion among participants noting that the document is a bit unclear as to its core purpose. Is it focusing on
The HTA did not see the need to address the former issue, but being more clear about criteria for a universal realm may be useful.
For terminology, it may not acceptable to bind to a particular terminology, even when that is globally applicable - for example a required binding to LOINC because in the UK the NHS might need to use SNOMED CT instead.
Terminology is not the only situation where misalignment on required aspects may occur. One possible solution/mechanism would be to allow a universal IG to be cloned for use in a realm that can not align, but that HL7 would ballot and review to "certify" that the realm-specific clone is consistent with the universal. Finally, HTA would like to clarify at what level the 'universalness' must apply.
