Decision Link(if not child)


Professional Associations, such as HL7, which bring together competing entities are subject to strict scrutiny under applicable antitrust laws. HL7 recognizes that the antitrust laws were enacted to promote fairness in competition and, as such, supports laws against monopoly and restraints of trade and their enforcement. Each individual participating in HL7 meetings and conferences, regardless of venue, is responsible for knowing the contents of and adhering to the HL7 Antitrust Policy as stated in §05.01 of the Governance and Operations Manual (GOM)

Project Proposals and PSS ReviewJean reviewed the project proposal - no home as yet. Push-back is about "person" versus "patient" centric. Does not seems to be a CGP focus project.

Discussion: Block vote 2 for next week Is here (will send to list and email commenters):

Block 2 (and subsequent blocks will be grouped by topic area) - for block vote 2, Pregnancy Status/Intent, MedicationDispense/MedicationRequest, Miscellany.  Eric and team will reach out to those with in-person requests to attempt resolution prior to the CGP vote. (Block vote 3 will address ODH). The goal is to provide sufficient notification to those with person requests such that they have the opportunity to review and comment before the block votes.

New tracker discussion:

FHIR-33080 (Cooper Thompson) - per


    • Brett, In 3.1.1 and 4.0.0, it is "period.end".
      In 5.0.1 and 6.0.0 it is "use=old and period.end if known"
    • Cooper: Either the US Core IG Profile “StructureDefinition-us-core-patient” element “name.period” or “name.use” is required for testing and certification in the ONC Certification Program to meet the USCDI requirement to support the “Patient Demographics” Data Class: “Previous Name” Data Element.
    • Eric: I notice that address.period is MS is this aligned with our guidance as a USCDI requirement?
    • Cooper:

Eric will update resolution based on the discussion for review next week - to fi in version 6 and to create patch for 3.1.1, 4.1.1, and 5.0.1

Questionnaire/QuestionnaireResponse - discussion about adding back QuestionnaireResponse. For further discussion.

Cooper Thompson: I think the psychometric instrument analysts might run into missed expectations regardless of whether instrument data is represented as a QuestionnaireResponse or Observation.

CGP continues to meet on the Second and Fourth Thursdays, US Core ballot reconciliation on alternate Thursdays
