    • MedicationKnowledge Resource Proposal
      • Reviewed proposal. Lloyd has concerns about putting financial stuff such as cost in this resource and how it relates to billing item definition, and how indications/contraindications relates to what clinical decision support is doing. All of the items in yellow clinical characteristic box - they should work with Clinical Decision Support. Lloyd: Comfortable that we need MedicationKnowledge and that we have no hope of the FDA and the Europeans to use MedicationKnowledge, but not totally sold on the boundaries in terms of pricing or indication/contraindication.

  • Discussion Topics
    • David's work on wiki migration
      • Reviewed David's report. Hans notes that FHIR is too scattered in Confluence right now. Whatever we do we need to make things easier to find. Brian Pech asks if David talked to Josh Procious yet - he has been migrating all the WGs over to Confluence off of the wiki. Could organize by what each audience might be looking for. Group notes that there are no links to products on the front page - just management groups. Should be a box above WGs for Products. Lloyd will ask Josh to add those pages.

        • ACTION: Lloyd McKenziewill contact Josh to add product families to the home page
