|Topic||AHA Terminology use in HL7 publications|
Rob M reported.
Uniform billing codes associated with AHA are US centric. These codes are often in a guide where there is an expectation regarding information exchange and billing. A field was discovered in FHIR associated with the DeVinci project (also US centric) for providers and payers where information typically recorded using a code that would be in a bill. AHA found this and found that there are examples in HL7 implementation guide which copies the AHA content.
Issues - policy and procedures needed:
Step 1: establish a policy
Step 2: establish a process
Step 3: communication strategy
Next harmonisation (not this month) will trial the UTG tooling and the the intent is to roll out UTG next year.
|Topic||SNOMED CT content request dates||New Content Request dates: |
From Jane Millar: <<These will now be 15 March and 15 September each year. This is not the same as adding existing content to the IPS freeset – that is a managed separately on different timelines, though uses the CRS system with topic HL7 IPS. I will reconfirm the dates for those requests>>
Possible action (to be confirmed by HTA) - to add these dates to the HL7 Calendar
Task: Julie to send out a reminder to all Co-Chairs - reminding them that they need to make any requests for additional codes, or promotion of codes from national releases. Any such requests must be received by the HTA by 15th of August, in order to be submitted prior to the 15th September deadline. Reminder to use the forms already developed and a link to where those forms can be found.
|Topic||Realm Transferable Standards Specifications project|
Any further discussion/notes in the document on the ARB site
No further action required until an updated proposal is received by HTA.

In development: HTA Updated ToR
See membership discussion below - update the GOM and have Rob as our liaison to TSC present it there.
|Topic||Identification of code systems policy - not discussed|
How do we structure the URL for code systems?
We need a policy on the procedure and then the process. A policy outline was discussed below - this needs to be more fully documented.
FHIR tracker items in H Group for HTA consideration - they are all external code system use requests
