Discussion items


Professional Associations that bring together competing entities, such as HL7, are subject to strict scrutiny under applicable antitrust laws. HL7 recognizes that the antitrust laws were enacted to promote fairness in competition and, as such, supports laws against monopoly and restraints of trade and their enforcement. Each individual participating in HL7 activities, regardless of venue, is responsible for knowing the contents of and adhering to the HL7 Antitrust policy as stated in §05.01 of the Governance and Operations Manual (GOM).

Primary Source issue
  • FHIR-37722 - Getting issue details... STATUS
  • Immunization.primarySource
    • Current definition: Indicates whether this record was captured as an original primary source-of-truth record rather than a secondary 'reported' record. A value "true" means this is a primary record of the immunization.
    • Possible interpretations
      • Source of the original data
        • May be useful for evaluating the quality of the data
      • Relationship of the system to the data
        • May be useful for downstream activities such as inventory decrementing
    • When the "system" is the one that first records the data the two interpretations merge
    • Possible updated definition: Indicates whether this record was captured as an original primary source-of-truth record rather than a secondary 'reported' record. A value "true" means this is a primary record of the immunization.
    • Provenance may be a third concept
