Project Proposal


PSS-1882 - Getting issue details... STATUS

Motion for CDS to be an Interested Party: Floyd Eisenberg / Peter Muir.  Passes 13-0-0.
Expiring Standards

Normative Standards:

HL7 Version 3 Standard: GELLO; A Common Expression Language, Release 2
Expires 6/9/2021 (Pursuing a recirculation ballot)

HL7 Version V3 GELLO Implementation Guide: Clinical Decision Support, Model Definition Language for GELLO, Release 1
Expires 4/17/2022 (Email sent to listserv 10/12 asking for information from the project team on this)

Most of the information was from Medical Objects in Australia.

Use in one application does not necessarily make it an international standard.

Rob M. suggests that we reach out to Medical Objects to explain the situation.  We could call it stable, but it would drop off ISO's normative standards list.

Consider having a CDS WG call at a later time to facilitate attendance from Australia.

Code Systems Review

HL7 Terminology (THO) External Terminologies — Code System information (metadata records and technical identifiers) not managed by the HL7 Terminology Authority

Need to register interest in a code system (as an HTA JIRA Ticket) by November 1st, or they will be retired

WG members should review the list.  If you have an IG that uses one of these code systems, you have an obligation to act.  The IG will otherwise reference an unsupported code system.  Workgroup sponsorship is not necessarily required to file a JIRA ticket (as far as we know).  Reach out to Rob McClure if a code system is identified.
