  1. Do you think Value Set Definition will help us to achieve our aim to publish the Value Sets agnostic of any HL7 standards (v2, v3, FHIR releases)?
    For e.g. the Administrative Gender value sets published on we have noticed that there are different codes for the Administrative Gender Value Set for HL7 v3, FHIR, and HL7 v2. How we can publish an Administrative Gender value set irrespective of the HL7 standard (v2 or v3 or FHIR R4/R5/…) an implementer may choose to use. 
    A. Formatting of codesystem and/or valueset content into any of the formalized product structures (V3/FHIR etc..) is possible. However, the identifiers should be noted to be globally unique (i.e., an OID in V2 is not the same as an OID in V3 for something similarly named (e.g., AdministrativeGender in this case) when the content is truly different. Infoway may choose to display valueset definitions in a standard way (e.g., based on best practices of VSD) then provide a technical solution to exporting them as valid HL7 structured resources (V3, FHIR etc...)
  2. Does the current definition of the description for CodeFilterContent(section- 7.1.3) cater to filtering and determining the actual concepts that are present in a value set that contains codes from multiple Code System(HL7 V2, V3, FHIR, SNOMED, LOINC, etc..)
    A: MIF syntax supports use of CodeFilterContent within multiple CodeSystemElement within a CLD

Update on request to HL7 for a JIRA project to support tickets/issues for HL7 products/IGs that are not currently being balloted (e.g., VSD): Currently there is no guidance from HL7, JIRA projects are not being opened/used for this right now, Carmela is continuing to explore options with HL7, including forwarding an example to TSC.
