Weekly updates will be posted to this page to give a high level overview of the UTG project with current priorities and risks

9/14/20-9/18/20

General status and progress updates: 

  • Project Management
    • UTG Go-Live to be announced at the September WGM
      • It is understood that there are still some open issues that have been prioritized and will continue to be addressed
    • Updated list of UTG Project Tasks
    • Continued to work on Educational materials
      • Continued creation of materials for the Submitter tutorials 
        • There will be three sessions to cover process, content, and tooling
      • Please see the UTG Education and Rollout Plan for more details
  • Pilot Preparation
    • The Pilot will be winding down as UTG goes live 
      • Tickets still in Pilot will continue in production
    • Please see Participating in UTG Pilot Testing for more information about issues logged 
  • Content
    • Release v2.0.0 of UTG content planned for around September WGM
      • There were build issues related to infrastructure that pushed back the deadline of this release
        • The build issues were resolved late 9/16
      • Status of open content issues
        • Grahame has started to move v2, v3 and FHIR rooted content from the FHIR pages
          • V2 and V3 content has been removed from the FHIR pages
        • Continued addressing issue where coremif is not being rebuilt
          • Extracted defaultValue and hierarchical concept properties from the latest coremif and incorporated them into UTG V3 files
          • The properties that would previously have been inferred as defaults are explicitly asserted in all V3 Code Systems
        • Due to a timing issue, the FHIR resources for the R5 preview site were updated with their versions after the R4.0.1 versions were imported
          • Still need a documented plan
          • Grahame recommends asserting new version for all FHIR UTG content but this violates the Vocab WG versioning policy
        • Need to finish up fix for the NUCC bad enumerated codes ("N" instead of "X") in the HIPAA value sets 
          • Mostly resolved, but waiting for input from Rob McClure on remaining errors
        • Need to continue on NamingSystem.title URI corrections for remaining systems
        • Fix warnings for bad markup in descriptions
  • Workflow
    • The approach for the Terminology Curator to apply terminology changes to GitHub is believed to be a repeatable process
      • Need to finalize documentation of the workflow process and continue testing
  • Notable ongoing discussions
    • During a long discussion at the FHIR connectathon, it was decided that we will use NamingSystem for identifier management broadly  
      • This means immediately that we will have a NamingSystem resource instance for every UTG code system   
      • Looking into adding something to the CodeSystem resource to indicate that it is a 'stub' (i.e. an empty resource that exists solely to house informative metadata, but contains no content or technical information about the code system (e.g. hierarchy meanings, properties, case sensitivity, etc.))
    • Need to define precise process to work through non-HL7 content in UTG
      • Ongoing calls/meetings with Reuben, Ted, and Rob H to flesh this all out completely and bring to HTA and Vocab
    • Proposal to remove the coremif "garbage content" out of UTG; needs further discussion.
    • Proposal to integrate all documentation for external terminologies into the UTG IG publication.

8/10/20-8/14/20

General status and progress updates: 

  • Project Management
    • Updated list of UTG Project Tasks
    • Continued to work on Educational materials
    • Provided information about expectation to co-chairs on the co-chairs call on 8/13
    • Immediate priorities for this week
      • Deprecation information in Provenance resources for value sets and code systems for coremif gen support
      • Deprecation information for concepts not imported from coremif originally
      • Fixing URL for NamingSystem.title extension where still not fixed
      • Correcting of remains erroneous v3 coremif-imported NUCC bad codes (those ending in 'N')
      • Finding some way to suppress the classes of warnings so the build is more tractable for finding 'real' errors. 
      • Get the new codes for Designation Use value set into FHIR properly (some are already in approved tracker tickets but have never been implemented). FHIR content (code systems) include the code 'display' - addressing the missing 3 values will remove nearly 1700 warnings/errors from UTG build.
      • Get process for merging approved ticket changes into the UTG Git Master more repeatable and less fragile so we can go to industrial production. 
      • Need both documentation of and the mailing list setup for UTG participants to sign up to be a reviewer/voter. The plan is for this to be a simple send to an email address which will be rerouted to Joshua Procious and Ted Klein to add the person's permissions settings to the UP JIRA project. The other half is a system for WG cochairs to request SGB to add a named person as an oversight group voter to one of the identified Groups for the change request types. Can use same mail system so it can be vetted and then forward to SGB.
      • We absolutely need a solution for the versioning issue with the imported FHIR code systems rooted at terminology.hl7.org -they were all 4.2.0 when imported, the R5 preview set then to 4.4.0 whether or not they changed, and we have an adopted and approved Vocabulary WG policy on CS versioning which this also violates. We need to solve this and apply the solution for the 2.0.0 release
