Summary of previous week


Summary of previous week:

3Production of profiles75

Continued discussion on the AllergyIntolerance Binding

  • There are multiple terminology binding options available. There is some variation on what validation mechanisms are implemented in different FHIR implementations, and thus overly complex constraints could be an implementation barrier.
  • Profiles can have different intents, e.g. "best-practice profiles" and "implementable profiles". "Best-practice profiles" might serve to influence other profiles but might not always be used in actual implementations.
  • More specific profiles (having more specific constraints) would allow communication parties to agree on predictable communication facilitating re-use of coded data, although such profiles might not be as widely used.
  • There was a consensus in the group that the profiles developed should aim to be more specific in the use of SNOMED CT, and that "best-practice profiles" would be a fully acceptable level for the IG produced. This would however not stop anyone implementing the profile in an information system.
