|Topic||HTA JIRA queue to manage requests and workflow||In Progress||Reuben|
Melva says "we have not been forgotten"; hopefully someone will be in touch with Reuben in the next week or so. If you have any comments on the Workflow get comments to Reuben ASAP.
|Topic||External SDO Issues or additional topics||Continuous|
Carol and Suzy Roy
and Sara Armson
Any comments on the Web-RADR2 mapping?
Vital Signs Content in the SOLOR extension. The correct process is to use the US content request process via the NLM. One person per project should be responsible for submission.
The Social Determinants of Health concepts should also go to the US content request process via the NLM. Susan will reach out to Lisa/Monique to ensure the correct process is followed
|Topic||Co-chair handbook and FHIR Accelerator Information||In progress||Julie|
Has sent JIRA ticket to Ken McCaslin for the FHIR Accelerator page and also reached out to PIC for the Co-Chair handbook.
|Topic||Referencing International Standard Classification for Occupations:||NEW|
Question from the Clinical Practice Guidelines IG
This is a "crank the handle" for the URI process Reuben Daniels
|Topic||URI for MedDRA||NEW||Julie|
What to do when a code system is really version sensitive
This is also "crank the handle" for the URI process Julie James
FHIR generally needs a single non-version specific URI for the code system. Can also ask for version identification information.
|Topic||URI for ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS||NEW||Carol/Julie|
Many of the codesystems defined in FHIR have HL7 based URIs because collaboration with the source was not successful in the past. See history of issue here: https://chat.fhir.org/#narrow/stream/179175-argonaut/topic/ICD-9.20and.20ICD-10.20system.20URIs/near/192666104
This is a "crank the handle" for the URI process Caroline Macumber
Look at PHIN Vads as another example of external codeystems for which the owners need to be contacted https://phinvads.cdc.gov/vads/ViewCodeSystem.action?id=2.16.840.1.113883.12.292#
URI syntax https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3986.txt
|Management||Virtual WGM Meeting in May||NEW||Julie|
Planning for a virtual meeting of the HTA and also with Vocab (Carol and Reuben - please comment)
Vocab are only going build an Agenda for those topics that do not have regular calls including joint meetings.
HTA will propose to Vocab that HTA will meet with Vocab on Wednesday 20th May at 3pm; we will also meet in our regular cycle (either side of this) so will hopefully achieve as much work as at F2F
|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
Previous commentary is shown below:
Process comment: Meeting minutes from meeting in which these items were originally discussed were updated after the fact. Requesting that assignments are tagged with a user name so users can be notified.
No progress just yet
|Topic||FHIR Tracker Items||#2 in progress still|
Report on the meeting with FMG
This is constructed by a query across the JIRA trackers that are assigned to HTA
What is our process to work on these? Priority item for next time
Reuben Daniels to scan through and provide a summary of the types of issues.
Summary created here.
The HTA passionately want to see the FHIR Terminology page DISAPPEAR" (no fake news, please). https://www.hl7.org/fhir/terminologies-systems.html
The correct place for all this information will be UTG.
Action: all HTA members please go through the table that Reuben has built and assign some tickets to yourself to resolve
