|Project Proposal - FAIRness for FHIR|
Work with the Research Data Alliance https://www.rd-alliance.org/ to provide guidance on supporting data FAIRness with HL7 FHIR. In particular describe how FHIR can help in supporting the FAIR (Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability and Reusability) principles (https://www.go-fair.org/fair-principles/) and the proposed RDA recommendations on FAIR data maturity model indicators.
Follow up from July 9, 2020 discussion - Awaiting follow up from FHIR-I and SOA.

|US Core Methodology|
Publication Request - Re: HL7 FHIR® US Core Implementation Guide STU3 Release 3.1.1. The changes for this errata package https://build.fhir.org/ig/HL7/US-Core-R4/.
The Co-Chair list serve received notification of the errata package on 15 July 2020 with indication that the comment period will ent on 29 July 2020.
Consider comments on errata package:
Deferred from prior calls (not errata-related):
Also deferred but reviewed in the US Realm Steering Committee and determined acceptable:
FHIR-27732 US Core MedicationRequest variance – encounter
FHIR-27731 US Core Patient variance – Patient.telecom
FHIR-27730 US Core Patient variance – Patient.communication.language
FHIR-27729 US Core Patient variance - us-core-birthsex
FHIR-27728 US Core Patient variance – us-core-ethnicity
FHIR-27727 US Core Patient variance – us-core-race
Briefly discussed on June 18 call and will require additional work:
FHIR-27770 - Need to work with Vocabulary and HTA since the current publication indicates reference to only one license year (2014) and CPT has a new license every year. Need a reasonable way to manage the code system version. The version is based on the date of service. The OID, code and reference does not change but the version changes with every year of service.
Next Steps for US Core Errata
Details to follow.
Road to US Core Discussion
For consideration on the May 28, 2020: Additional US Core FHIR Trackers (Frank McKinney) regarding Real-Time Pharmacy Benefit Check (RTPBC) Implementation Guide - variance for profiles regarding Patient and MedicationRequest (see Tracker links bullet below).
Current expectations: Expecting errata package for US Core toward the end of June 2020 for a 2-week comment period followed by a vote for approval and publication in early July 2020.
Jira Issue Summary (Reporter) Resolution
The WG reviewed FHIR trackers on the errata package:
FHIR-28079 Persuasive with Modification - Brett Marquard/Eric Haas: 10-0-1
FHIR-28156 - Not Persuasive - Jean Duteau/Eric Haas: 9-0-2
Publication Request reviewed and approved - Eric Haas/Floyd Eisenberg: 10-0-0
Errata Letter reviewed and confirms changes in the Publication Request. No need to have a formal vote on the Errata Letter.
|Public Health IG Recommendations for US Core (Craig Newman)||Public Health sponsored FHIR IGs (Birth and Fetal Death reporting and Birth Defect reporting) and noticed a good number of data elements in common; I.e., a potential to share a number of profiles including patient (probably), mother/father/relatedPerson and a number of observations about the pregnancy and delivery (plurality, number of previous live births, LMP, etc). Public Health is looking at making a “common public health” FHIR IG that defines these profiles and that their individual IGs can reference. Particularly for the observations, a lot of these concepts go beyond public health and could be used by a number of different systems. Public Health requests discussion with CGP to get a feel for whether or not CGP should be pursing adding profiles to US Core or some sort of IG that maybe has more visibility than a “public health” IG might get. (Craig Newman, John Loonsk, Cynthia Bush, Sarah Gaunt)||Craig Newman briefly reviewed the concepts for Birth and Fetal Death Reporting and Birth Defect Reporting. The CGP WG briefly discussed that the project can work through Public Health and if desired, CGP could co-sponsor. To assure consistency across profiles using resources to define required elements, work with other WGs is needed. Public Health will present to CQI tomorrow as well. The project was approved by FMG yesterday. Craig will bring back further information at a future meeting.||I|
|September Virtual WGM Agenda|
September HL7 Virtual WGM schedule - Monday, September 21 noon ET through Friday, September 25 at 6:00 PM ET (2 hour slots on a 24 hour basis through the week).
CGP is relatively new and "usually" has one quarter identified as well as co-chair joining the USRealm session. Is Thursday, September 24 from 2:00 - 4:00 PM ET acceptable? (https://www.doodle.com/poll/crgmir8dzh8x7f44) Do we need joint meetings with other WGs?
|The CGP agreed to meet Thursday, September 23 from 2-4 PM and the item entered in the WGM Doodle poll.|
ANSI Opens Survey: Standardization Empowering AI-enabled Systems in Health Care
Informational for CGP: The canonical url for NUCC Provider Terminology includes abstract code categories in the content loaded into the FHIR Terminology Server. These USCoreProviderSpecialityNucc value set abstract code categories may need to be removed but the value set does not need to change because it is all codes in the code system. The expansion is incorrect. This is a FHIR tooling issue and once fixed, the US Core reference to the value set will inherit the change.
