|1||Introductions and apologies||Andrew Norton|
Andrew Norton unable to attend initially, apology by email noted.
|2||HL7 Anesthesia Update|
The process by which HL7 updates are made was discussed.
HL7 membership allows voting and access to protected areas of their website, but much of the content is accessible to all. Corporate and individual memberships exist.
Recent correspondence on existing standards for anesthesia records.
Terminology is developing in HL7, e.g. towards a compositional grammar for expressing concepts. Ian Green notes that there is not an overarching move towards this and comments that legacy GP systems in the UK are not structured to make this easy. Nevertheless, the group consensus was that pre-coordinated terms were not flexible enough to cope with new devices, language translation, etc.
Ian Green discussed the currently-circulated 2020-2025 stakeholder survey. All are invited to participate. Members of the Anesthesia CRG might be interested in particular areas within Anaesthesia (e.g. Devices, Medications) and should mention these where possible.
Planning for the business meeting in April is under way.
SNOMED has a communications lead - Kelly Kuru. She is looking for clinical perspectives on the use of SNOMED - does it offer what clinicians need? Any thoughts are welcomed by SNOMED. Steven Dain notes that software implementations often have a more significant effect on the user than the underlying classification.
|4||Anesthesia Quality Institute Updates|
Ian Green noted that a proposal to review our terminology in this area may be worth considering.
The group noted that ISO publications make definitions within their standards openly available (for example, ISO 4135:2001), although other content of the ISO standards is not freely available.
|5||Minutes of previous meeting||Minutes of 2018-09-25 Anesthesia CRG Meeting. These were reviewed and accepted.|
