Summary of previous week

3Profile for Specimen Resouce65

Specimen binding

Suggestion from Jim Case that the type attribute would be better bound to (< Substance plus < Morphologic Abnormality plus < Physical Object (or selection thereof)) rather than Specimen as it avoids any potential conflict with the other attributes and is effectively opening up post coordination, rather than sticking to a inherently restricted set of pre-coordinated concepts.

Similarly (Linda Bird), the method attribute is currently a selection of SNOMED CT concepts plus a V2 valueset.

Two main options:

  1. Use Specimen hierarchy for "type" and then constrain what can appear in the other fields (and how we deal with conflict!)
  2. Put all information into a post coordinated expression in the "type" attribute (Jim Case noted that some aspects - like the shipping container - may not be characteristics intrinsic to the specimen).

Jim Case also suggested that using these decomposed fields would only be used outside of a SNOMED context. Otherwise could be achieved - (PWI: more safely due to MRCM) - with post coordinated.

  1. Hi,

    Unfortunately, with the time change, I will not be able to join the call. This is one hour too late!

    But Joel Francis and I have worked on the Condition Resource, and we have questions and propose changes we'd like to bring to this group for discussion. How would you propose we proceed?

    Thank you,


    1. Hi Linda

      I've created a page Condition Resource into which you're welcome to post your questions and proposals (feel free to edit the page directly rather than add comments) and I'll mention it to Daniel Karlsson as a possible additional agenda item.   Best Wishes, Peter

  2. Hi Peter,

    okay that is great. I have just loaded our review on the page you created. Hopefully our comments and questions will help driving some additional discussions.

    Thank you!
