When a VSD is expanded against a new version of the code system, inactive codes drop out unless you ejxplicitely indicate that they should be retained as a legacy code.
The expansion project wants to show what a good expansion looks like but also how to create such a quality object. There is a very active project working on the issues raised.
There is a need to understand the changes affected by the use of a new VSD content. Implementers need a way and would like to be able to focus on the differences between versino A and version B - access to a Delta set to see the differences in expansions would be really helpful. A picture or artefact to understand these changes was called for.
A request for support for development of content for the UTG was made. UTG has a proposal for a new vocabulary object is being created - this will hopefully be a domain expert activity and UTG should have a sub process around creation of the draft proposal. the current process is all on the higher level governance processes, but this is a good request that is beyond the current scope deliverables but will be further considered in the future.
A request to harmonise value sets across th eproduct lines. It was reported by Vocab that this work is already underway and UTG will provide further guidance to facilitate this effort. OO is already undertaking this activity.
A project to unify content would be welcome within Structured Docs. Stewards of value set definitions need to be established for relevant content artefacts.
There are resourcing problems, for patient care in particular, but it is also a skill set which requires specilised tools and knowledge. Vocabulary has the core knowledge pool and we need to support the other domain oriented groups and work out how to do this. Help was requested - Vocab indicated that they have devleoped tutorials to support this need but if there is seen to be a need we will seek to run this again or consider the development of webinar material.
Also consider adding facilitator competency to the quality metrix.
