Hi CMAG members,

We need to consider the need for an online CMAG meeting during October business meetings.  If you have potential discussion topics or items for the agenda please comment on this blog post or email me direct. 

Thanks,

Cathy 

Hi CMAG members,

The current representation for limbs and girdles has been undertaken as part of the anatomy project. The proposed revision is intended to improve the quality of body structure hierarchy. Since these changes will have a wider impact on the model and classification of diseases and procedures, the Advisory Groups are being asked to review the proposal and provide feedback.

The comments can be added directly in the Google doc at the following link:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1zlVNTxuiL7UrvB8mjvDER0qJHzZjqe_ieVVfeqthNvc/edit?usp=sharing

It will be much appreciated if feedback could be provided before 10th August.

Regards,

Cathy

Hi all,

SNOMED International is looking for input from the CMAG members on the discussion thread started by Matt Cordell here: ConceptId churn and FSN changes.. In particular we are looking for feedback on what types of changes to FSN's would be acceptable without requiring inactivation and replacement of the concept. Given the thread has already been set up please add your comments to that page.

Just a reminder that the topic Naming convention for procedures using a surgical approach is open for comment until 21 May 2020.

Thank you for your responses on Definitions of Provision and Dispensing. This topic is now being closed. 

Kind regards,

Cathy

April CMAG meeting

Hi all, 

Following the announcement of the cancellation of the April face to face meetings, please be advised we will not be holding a CMAG zoom call at this point in time. In regard to the Joint Advisory Group sessions, we will provide updates in the near future on how the CMAG can contribute to the topics that were to be discussed. 

Kind regards,

Cathy

Please find the next of a series of briefing notes that was sent to the Member Forum to update them on the content improvements in the Substance and Product hierarchies. For further reference, this project group’s Confluence space is located at: Drugs Project Please contact info@snomed.org with any inquiries.

Please be advised that a review of the CRS tickets in the inception/elaboration status is currently underway. A number these tickets represent one or more of the following:

• A known issue
• A complex issue where in-depth analysis is required
• An area of content where specialist clinical input is required
• An area of content which covers a significant number of concepts that require review
• Modelling issues that will be corrected through the structural work being undertaken as part of the QI project.

These CRS tickets are linked to a relevant JIRA project issue with management planned as part of the resolution of the underlying issue. Given the identification of the larger issue and links between the CRS ticket and JIRA issue a decision has been made to close the relevant CRS tickets and ask the requestor to add themselves as a watcher on the JIRA ticket. Watchers of JIRA tickets are notified when any changes are made e.g. a status change, comments added. Comments may also be added to the JIRA ticket by parties interested in the topic.

This planned closure excludes the LOINC request CRS tickets.

The closing of CRS tickets and notification to requestors is planned for the end of March 2020.

Please advise if you have any questions or comments on the planned action. This input is required by Friday 14th February.

Kind regards,

Cathy Richardson
