3 Resource development
· Christi stated that she has a developer working on code for the Connectathon and he may be able to help with FHIR resource changes. Julie stated that she could serve as a contact if the developer has questions.
· Information is on the FHIR wiki for the FHIR Build Process and How to create resources
· We can create profiles and extensions; for Observation, we would most likely create a Clinical Research profile that contains the additional fields we need.
· The developer could create profiles and extensions to the existing resources, keep the owners of the resources in the loop
· Download the tools -> change the local copy -> get approval from the FHIR authority -> profiles/extensions are published
· There is a latest working copy vs. the published copy
4 Next Meeting
To address the challenge of communicating across varying standards, the BR&R team partnered with TransCelerate clinical research sponsor organizations to understand the various standards for recording and submitting laboratory data. Through this partnership, mappings were developed between the FHIR standard that is emerging in research, and the CDISC standards currently being used. The work was documented in an implementation guide.
The current version of the implementation guide, which was included in the September 2019 ballot process, is located at:
