|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 -
SOA WG may be in principle the sponsor of this proposal.
(In case, ArB may be interested in sponsorship or co-sponsorship)
|The project was reviewed with SOA on August 17 and will be reviewed with ARB.|

|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/. Awaiting final edits to submit to HL7 CTO and notify TSC.
Publication Request - Approved by CGP 30 July 2020
CTO Errata Letter - Approved by CGP 30 July 2020
Status update - Brett Marquard, Eric Haas
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 errata, the publication request and the errata letter were all approved on July 30. by CGP. All QA has been updated and Wayne Kubick (CTO) has been notified for the errata release and some copyright updates. Final publication is pending.
Discussion about a routine process for tracker item review and a release plans for US Core updates/versions. Consider a block vote for some of the existing outstanding trackers (especially the variances requested for Pharmacy listed in the description column to the left).
Process for review of trackers:
Once per month - first meeting of the month starting in October
US Core track in FHIR Connectathon - from Inferno team - Argonaut participating - shared track, title US Core.
Consider how to handle variances:
Consider the following US Core Variance Process:
Jean will create a draft process (confluence page) and include links to the work the must be done.
|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.

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.
