    • Use of OBX-5 with post-coordination
  • How to deal with unsolicited ORU messages (when you need order information along with the diagnosticReport
  • Why not just do this as a community review?
    • We have been doing that and have NOT gotten any input, so doing a ballot will raise that (though it also make
  • Having community review AND ballot in 3 month period is a lot to ask the same folks to do
  • Motion that V2 management will support a May ballot as set of confluence page with the spreadsheet links with the understanding that this will be in FHIR IG format for the net ballot round
