|Topic||Multiple choice question about HTA for Co-chair dinner|
What do you do if you want a new concept added to SNOMED CT US extension to use in a US-focused FHIR Implementation Guide?
Post a request on Zulip?
Contact SNOMED International directly?
Call Susan Matney?
Have your Vocab Facilitator in the concept request form on the HTA Confluence pages?
Have your Vocab Facilitator contact the SNOMED National Release Center at the NLM?
|Topic||Supporting provision of URIs for Terminology in FHIR|
Identifying Code Systems in HL7 Artefacts
Working with and supporting Vocabulary Facilitators and how to do that with the Accelerator Projects
Desirable that the main target audience for the outputs are the Vocab Facilitators but that may not be practicable. But we do need "capacity building" in terminology skills
Lessons from the OID Registry - needs good governance especially if widely used and clean the data as entry.
HL7 and Health IT "needs identifiers for code systems" but...a URI is a DNS friendly identifier - it is not healthcare specific. A "resolvable" URL implies some business requirement.
The content of the discussion is captured in the set of slides that were used to guide the discussion; these can be found at Terminology Authority documents entitled URIs for Code Systems in FHIR Sept WGM
Action: RMcC and SK to send copies of the forms etc. that have been used to communicate with code system owners
Next HTA actions: Confluence form for vocab facilitators or whoever for requesting; "letter" to code system owners
|Topic||HTA Role / GOM Changes / Report from TSC meeeting|
Julie attended Q2 of TSC and will do so at next WGM
Janus - HTA faces externally on behalf of the Board to code system owners and internally for use of external code systems within the HL7 community
SGB is a group created by TSC (which is operational) to define policy for HL7 Product Family activities. So SGB will need to endorse the flow diagram we have created then TSC would communicate to the community that "this is what you need to do"
|Management||HTA Membership changes||After the Board meeting Tuesday|
|Management||Teleconferences and Sydney WGM|
Continue to use the Tuesday 9pm BST/UTC every fortnight. Need to make sure we are not clashing with SNOMED on FHIR
At the Sydney WGM, everything is one day later, so HTA will meet Q1&Q2 on MONDAY morning
