PSS for Vital Records Birth and Fetal Death Reporting FHIR (Sarah Gaunt) - 10 min

Sarah walked through the PSS:

  • Is mapping to the VR DAM part of the scope?  Yes, but this may be a later exercise.
  • There are concerns that there is a similar IHE CDA IG and there may be some overlap and this poses a burden to vendors.

Motion to approve the PSS (Sarah Gaunt/AbdulMalik Shakir)

  • Approved (31-1-0)

Immunization IG Discussion (Alean Kirnak) - 25 min

Alean continued the discussion that began at the Sydney WGM:
