|Notes & Actions
|Welcome and introductions
Recording, notes & attendance.
|Summary of previous week and previous fortnight
SNOMED International April Business Meeting may or may not happen. In the event of the slot being available, this meeting can go ahead.
San Antonio HL7 Meetings + Connectathon May 16 -17 Cancelled. Virtual connectathon being discussed. Update 7 April: See https://confluence.hl7.org/display/FHIR/2020-05+Terminology+Services+Track
April 14: HL7 FHIR Connectathon is going to run May 13-14-15, a 24 h event. Update 19 May: 677 participants, running continuously over 48 hours. Breakout sessions easier (and more numerous) due to separate Zoom calls. Steer from GG to try to make the designations extension we're working on applicable more broadly to other code systems. Code System Supplements discussed as an alternative mechanism for supplying patient friendly terms. Breakout on federated behaviour & pre-release codes (http://snomed.info/xsct ← this would apply to the version string, rather than the CodeSystem. Discussion continues with the Vocab Workgroup).
FHIR Dev Days also an online event June 15 - 17.
HL7 Baltimore Sept 19 - 25
SI Business + Expo October Lisbon. Discuss SNOMED on FHIR Presentation.
|Use of url parameter
CodeSystem "class vs instance" in url parameter between CodeSystem and ValueSet operations
CodeSystem is understood.
In Valueset, url is the ValueSet url for example url = http://snomed.info/sct?fhir_vs= allows for the version URI to be used as stated in https://build.fhir.org/snomedct.html The base URL is either http://snomed.info/sct , or the URI for the edition version, in the format specified by SNOMED International in the SNOMED CT URI Specification.
The ValueSet version valueSetVersion is just some string identifier eg a timestamp or 0.1.0
GPS and FHIR value set url(s)
|What module(s) to use for the Canadian Edition
|Peter G. Williams
|ECL in the Valueset Expression Extension
Check whether SNOMED ECL is (or should be) registered as a MIME type (as per RFC 4289/BCP 13), or alternatively added to the expression-language code system and value set, for use in the valueset-expression extension used with the ValueSet resource.
For example, HL7 have registered application/json+fhir
This is useful for a ValueSet extension which allows any language to be used to define the selection criteria for an intensional definition using a MIME type. This group has no current reason to use that extension given the existing core specification support for implicit ValueSet definition and the support within the compose element.
RDF community may have an interest.
|Behaviour on calling the base URL
|Working with unversioned content
ML makes the case that unpublished content is not legitimate SNOMED and suggested using a not-SNOMED URI eg http://snomed.info/xsct/45991000052106
|FHIR Server Federation
Use case for fall back lookup when server does not know the answer to any particular question eg a façade server which has knowledge of all services it could potentially delegate to.
|Behaviour on Lookup
What properties are returned?
Discussion: Both Ontoserver and Snowstorm are returning EffectiveTime which is not listed here (unlike other SNOMED specifics): https://build.fhir.org/snomedct.html
Point of interest: Grahame's server returns a copyright property.
Update 7 April - Question about whether this is required / desirable?
|Language Reference Sets in FHIR
Update 19 May: Suggestion that we work an example for SNOMED to discuss with Regenstrief (LOINC)
|SNOMED Family of Languages
Impact of proposed changes (eg text searching in ECL) on FHIR. Questions around which language reference sets to use when there are multiple, especially partial/overriding context (referred to MAG for discussion)
|SNOMED FHIR Implementation Guide
Update 10 Dec: DK - main problem is URI/Ls which publisher has fixed ideas about. Publisher does not examine all folders - looks in profiles but not subfolders and doesn't seem to look in ValueSet folder.
Update 21 Jan: DK and RH have merged commits and these can be seen in the HL7 server build: http://build.fhir.org/ig/IHTSDO/snomed-ig/branches/new-template/ and build errors here: http://build.fhir.org/ig/IHTSDO/snomed-ig/branches/new-template/qa.html
Update 11 Feb: Grahame said that he'd show us how to set the URI so that it doesn't have to follow the base URI. Next person to try that can we fire a Zulip off to ask about it?

Any other business
Next time: Progress worked Designation Extension example for SNOMED, to discuss with Regenstrief with a view to developing a terminology agnostic solution.
Potential Items for Discussion
|Notes & Actions
|API for FHIR Resource ↔ Post coordinated expression mapping
|Looking up an SCTID in an unknown module
Problems when dependencies do not align. Multiple code system resources represent multiple editions / versions.
ML: See code parameter to code system search. Should return code systems (ie versions) where that code is defined. International concepts would appear in every edition known to the server.
|See Discussion on Global Patient Set (GPS)
|$lookup operation - properties returned
Using http://ontoserver.csiro.au/vstool/ I noticed that both Ontoserver and SnowStorm return a SNOMED CT $lookup property for effectiveTime, which I don't see listed, as one of the SNOMED CT properties in the FHIR R4 specification at http://hl7.org/fhir/snomedct.html. Should we create a Jira TIcket to add this?
Completed - https://jira.hl7.org/browse/FHIR-26555
