Meeting Minutes from Discussion

(10 min)

Welcome newcomers

Newcomers:  Olivier Karasira and Michelle Barry of Availity 

HL7 Process and toolsHow to co-create documents for our work?  Use Confluence?? Other??Lloyd: it's NOT intended that docs be created and co-edited in Confluence. Commonly people just use a google doc, perhaps shared as "anyone with link can view."  People who want to edit can then request access.

Creating PSS etc

We're not clear on when to list at There may be no clear rule. The purpose is to let others around HL7 know what we're working on, to enable coordination.

Virginia Lorenzi will f/u on how to triage projects (Frieda Hall?) we should pay attention to (without drowning in the HL7 ocean, ahem)

Patient Innovator Track was terrifically successful!  Winners:

  • Judges' award: Morgan Gleason - "12 doctors & 23 portals"
  • People's Choice: Olivier Karasira - "Turning Paper into FHIR in Africa"

Discussion: Lloyd hopes Morgan's idea (discussed in her presentation's Zulip stream) will ultimately become a formal HL7 IG, under our WG.  (See also Bray Patrick-Lake's thread - similar need to aggregate, but very different particulars, including the need for device IDs)

PE WG projects 

(30 min)

Co-chair suggestion: how about instead of all 4 projects every week ...

Idea 1: projects projects might ask to be on the agenda, as needed

Idea 2: rotate groups - 2 projects per week, each one presenting every other weekIdea 3?


Patient Corrections to Errors (Debi, Abbie)

Project Proposal is approved; PSS is drafted and posted on our Confluence page


may present an unfinished draft PSS

& Abbie welcome anyone who wants to work on this!

Leaders' initial approach is to examine legal workflows (US and elsewhere) and see what FHIR resources may be needed and may already exist.

Terrie: WHO has a compilation of patient rights.

Patient Contributed Data (Jan & Maria)

PSS-1655 - Create a white paper on patient contributed data IN REVIEW 

Working on framework for their environmental scan. Will create a google doc and share with the WG.
