3a. Project Scope

The creation of FHIR profiles for the laboratory codes listed in the top 2k LOINC codes as well as their corresponding FHIR profiles and an implementation guide. We will also develop logical models and FHIR profiles for additional labs as resources permit.


3b. Project Need

Lab results are routinely sent between systems. There are modeling differences between each lab and specific labs need to be requested from a system. This requires profiles for the labs.

3c. Security Risk


3d. External Drivers

3e. Objectives/Deliverables and Target Dates

1. Develop the logical models (complete)
2. Develop the FHIR profiles (complete first draft)
3. QA FHIR profiles with O&O (first draft complete)
4. Develop the IG (complete)
5. Collaborate with implementers, FHIR enable their applications (no date yet).
6. Hold a connectathon (Sept. 2000)
7. Ballot in Jan. 2021
