|Topic||Update from discussion with Wayne, CTO||Report||Julie/Carol/Reuben|
Susan and Sylive confirmed their desire to continue service on HTA
HTA confirmed that we are absolutely interested in helping the US Realm WRT use of external code systems.
Mail goal of the call was discuss migration/update of URLs where FHIR had previously declared URLs. Next steps were agreed upon to meet with FMG as soon as possible. Wayne asked that HTA prepare a list of potential issues where conflict exists or is likely to exist.
|Topic||External Terminologies Update||In progress|
MedDRA (Julie) - Done
ILO/ISCO (Reuben) - In Progress (great call, awaiting confirmed information to proceed)
ICD10-CM (Carol) - In Progress (awaiting response from CDC)
ICD10-PCS (Carol) - In Progress (awaiting approval of "Using ICD-10-PCS with FHIR" draft page)
Dartmouth Atlas (Carol) - In Progress (no response from source, proceeding with default URLs)
PHIN VADS - ?
ISO 3166 (Roel)
Roel is reached out to ISO through NEN for a canonical URL
Review by HTA pointed out that the format doesn't appear to be stable and langauge translation independent. Roel will reach back out to them.
|Topic||HTA JIRA queue to manage requests and workflow||In Progress||Reuben|
Given large number of projects required and resources for customization, all new projects will have no customization at this time. HTA has been provided a project and Reuben has been working on any customizations that are possible at this time, including sub-statuses (HTA has requested more granular sub-statuses for In Progress), but HL7 is not able to accommodate. As a work around, Reuben is adding labels to help distinguish status.
To Do items:
Transition of existing tickets - transfer from FHIR and UTG projects?
|Topic||External SDO Issues or additional topics||Continuous|
Carol and Suzy Roy
and Sara Armson
SCT Int is starting a Research Webinar series, at 11 am Eastern/ 1500-1600 UTC
Expo is still planned as a Hybrid (in-person and virtual). Abstract submission open till end of May. Hoping to have decision on face to face sometime around middle of June.
|Topic||Co-chair handbook and FHIR Accelerator Information|
Response from the FHIR Accelerator was somewhat negative - FHIR Accelerators have too much to worry about already. Responded that we are hearing from Accelerators and also that our process will encourage direct contact; re-iterated the "one contact per Accelerator" as per SNOMED too. Awaiting further response
Nothing yet from PIC re: the Co-Chair handbook.
|Carol||We need to get the disclaimer in the FHIR pages for UMLS|
The first release was completed on 5/10/2020 https://terminology.hl7.org/
Relatedly, Reuben has proposed the addition of an "authoritative" boolean to NamingSystem to clearly indicate if the URL is endorsed by the external terminology owner/handled by HTA. WIll be voted upon at tomorrow's Vocab meeting
