Carol and Suzy Roy
and Sara Armson
Today released the alpha release of SNOMED to MedDRA and MedDRA to SNOMED mapping from the Web-RADR2 project with the MHRA
Please anyone review and comment; questions to Suzy
Vital Signs Content in the SOLOR extension - what is the process to request for this to be promoted to core? Suzy Roy will take this back to SNOMED International to resolve
|Topic||External Code Systems Statement for IGs|
|Julie to report|
TSC approved the wording at their meeting 9th March.
There is a new TSC action item to determine how to implement the policy; HTA has requested to be involved in that.
|Topic||SOU with AHA Review||Complete||Julie to report|
The finalised document was sent to Karen van at HQ and sent on to AHA. No further news at this point so considered complete.
The document can be used as a template for other organisations in a similar situation.
|Topic||Co-chair handbook and FHIR Accelerator Information||NEW||Julie|
Suggest we produce a very short section on the HTA to go onto the FHIR Accelerator information page. Julie James will follow up to get something on this page for HTA
Co-chair handbook Co-Chair Handbook - nothing at all about terminology or vocabulary - and therefore about Vocab facilitation.
Julie James will reach out to PIC and ask to have some mention of terminology/vocabulary - IF the Vocab WG would support that (Reuben to take this to Vocab WG and get back to Julie)
Motion: HTA recommends to the UTG removes the four NUBC code systems and the HPC (HCPCS) code system from the first release of the UTG. The content should be stored but not published.
Proposed: CM; second: SM - carried unanimously.
Jessica Bota will communicate this to Ted Klein to action in the UTG.
We discussed that the HCPCS code system is a grey area because it is a CMS/HIPAA mandated code system based on the CPT4 codes from AMA, but for now, it will not in UTG.
Reuben Daniels is dealing with some queries from Ted regarding FHIR code systems. We are likely to see some email traffic on the HTA list for this.
|Topic||ISO Codes - update||In Progress||Davera|
STILL OPEN: Other ISO standards to check
The current ask within BCP47 is
It still unclear what the implications of the difference are. The applicable section to review is "2.2 Language Subtag Sources and Interpretation" in https://tools.ietf.org/html/bcp47. Davera will look at the US Core FHIR IG to determine if they are referencing the ISO set for Language Codes and/or another set or a syntax
