Committee Approval Date:

Public Health Work Group: Oct 8, 2020

Publishing Lead:

Sarah Gaunt: sarah.gaunt@lantanagroup.com

Contributing or Reviewing Work Groups:

Public Health Work Group

FHIR Development Project Insight ID:

1643

Scope of coverage:

The resources included in this IG are those that are common to multiple Vital Records IGs (at this point - Birth and Fetal Death Reporting and Birth Defects Reporting). The IG was created in order to avoid defining the same profiles multiple times in different IGs.

Content location:

https://github.com/HL7/fhir-vr-common-ig

Proposed IG realm and code:

us/fhir-vr-common-library

Maintenance Plan:

National Center for Health Statistics will be responsible for ongoing maintenance through the Public Health Work Group.

Short Description:

Library containing profiles used by other Vital Records IGs such as Birth and Fetal Death Reporting and Birth Defects Reporting.

Long Description:

The Vital Records Common FHIR Profile Library is not a stand-alone IG. The contained profiles are used in other Vital Records IGs such as Birth and Fetal Death Reporting and Birth Defects Reporting. It is a mechanism to enable easy re-use of profiles across IGs and prevent multiple copies of profiles in different IGs.

Involved parties:

National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS)

Expected implementations:

Three states (Georgia, Michgan, and Utah) are involved in the pilot program for Birth and Fetal Death Reporting (which re-uses these profiles), along with Genesis Systems, Altarum, and Epic. All of the aforementioned entities participated in the FHIR Connectathon 25 (see Birth & Fetal Death Reporting (BFDR) for details).
