Management Minutes Approval

MethodologyPDDI IG update (Rich Boyce)
  • Decision to make specification stateless at this point. Up to EHR client to decide whether or not a PDDI recommendation back from a CDS service should be displayed to the user.
  • Prototype CDS engine available. Will be tested at the Sep Connectathon.
    • Rules implemented in CQL
  • Specification highlights
    • Uses order-sign and order-select hooks 
    • Card.action includes an array of documentation with links to the knowledge artifact (represented as a PlanDefinition resource or unstructured reference) that triggered the PDDI. EHRs can use the knowledge artifact to determine if the PDDI should be displayed to the clinician. Other alternatives that may be more generalizable should be considered, such as moving this to the structure of the card or creating a link extension to indicate the semantics of the link. 
    • Another approach is to include a DetectedIssue resource in the PlanDefinition. CPG on FHIR is using this approach.
