Meeting Minutes from Discussion
Quorum is met
Motion to approve Minutes proposed and accepted
|Topic||HTA JIRA queue to manage requests and workflow||Reuben and Joshua|
Going to use JIRA to manage requests for new content in external terminologies (SNOMED/LOINC etc.) and requests for URIs for external terminologies to support FHIR use of terminologies. We have a draft process and artefacts (letters etc.) to work with this. JIRA will help us in managing the request process - to log and track the process.
JIRA provides software for workflow management; it is quite versatile to support needs
Reuben will work with Josh to bring an initial draft configuration to the next meeting for us to (hopefully) verify.
Suzy is formally replacing Jane as SNOMED-HL7 Liaison. Email thanking Jane.....
Julie and Carol to have a TC with Suzy next week to talk about how to handle content requests from the Accelerator Projects
|Topic||External Code Systems Statement for IGs||Julie|
HTA policy states that "Any publication or draft HL7 specification or implementation guide that references an external code system in any way must:
A proposal has been made to TSC that the following wording should be used:
"Implementers and testers of this specification SHALL abide by the license requirements for each terminology content artifact utilized within a functioning implementation. Terminology licenses SHALL be obtained from the terminology authority for each code system or other specified artifact used. It is the sole responsibility of each organization deploying or testing this specification to ensure their implementations comply with licensing requirements."
TSC are not entertaining this proposal until the HTA has discussed it
The wording is designed to go into HL7 products but is regarding use of external terminologies in those specs. The HTA would prefer not to have such a heavy handed approach both of language and format.
Julie will communicate the views of the HTA back to the TSC
From WGM: Look at UTG Naming System page - is there anything obviously incorrect?
Carol to lead (please)
Reuben, Susan and Julie have not yet heard anything about testing. Sylvie has a user name and password directly from Ted for testing purposes. Maybe request UTG Project Lead (Jessica) to attend an HTA meeting to describe what's needed in testing etc.
|Topic||ISO Codes - update||Davera|
STILL OPEN: Other ISO standards to check:
|Topic||FHIR Tracker Items||Reuben/Carol|
[#25207] Summary: Update Licence Note for Value Sets based on SNOMED GPS
Still needs to craft a new statement to use in the IPS Specification (and others) - Suzy R is working on this 2010-02-19 Caroline Macumber
Graeme Grieve is (allegedly) dealing with new SNOMED content for Vital Signs to go into the GPS - discuss with Suzy. FMG is requiring that anything that requires use of SNOMED is balloted as US Realm; HTA needs to challenge this. Susan will investigate this further and come back to the HTA.
