Recording + Notes.
Note that this meeting will clash with the HL7 meeting in Cologne and the timings will not line up to allow a joint call. We agreed to proceed as planned, with expected reduced numbers.
|2||Summary of previous week||5|
|3||Update from HL7 Discussions - Cologne||20|
JM: HL7 suggestion that some ValueSets be required as an aid to interoperability (in Normative Ballot). However, these ValueSets would need to be "Free and freely accessible" and therefore unable to use SNOMED as part of that particular specification. LOINC most obvious alternative. SNOMED could still be used in this situation, but this would require mapping since the LOINC codes would still be required.
RH: This would relate to "code" elements which always have required bindings ie FHIR ValueSets already exist for those. FHIR not intending to specify any SNOMED Codes with binding strength further than "example" since SNOMED is not freely available.
Vocab Group: Terminfo as distinct from SNOMED on FHIR. RH: 2015 Draft standard for trial use has now expired. Use of SNOMED in CDA, question whether specification can be "kept alive". HL7 would need to set up a new project in order to formally collaborate with SNOMED on FHIR (answers in next two weeks (Thursday)).
