Action Item Updates

  • Profiles
    • Home Care Plan - Hanne to send the Project Proposal to the group - Done, sent to Program Board
    • Home Care Team - Hanne to send the Project Proposal to the group - Done, sent to Program Board
    • José to add draft valuesets wherever needed*** Addiction, PatientWill, Vaccination, Problem - Done on RIZIV IG.
    • José to update the template for showing "draft" resources in a different color - Not done
    • José to fix example in PatientWill code and category. - We defined the process for collaboration, will try it for this value set
    • This may be impacted by the Déclarations Anticipées Correctes - but we will follow the same process.
    • Problem
      • Make sure that all valuesets and codesystems used are NOT marked as complete unless they are actually complete. - Done
        • Codesystem.content can be marked as fragment - NOT DONE
      • event.basedOn - is not correct - this should be a way to indicate that there is a prescription/referral in the origin of the finding of the problem (so it would be a relation to an event or encounter) - Conclusion: Replace extension by simply making .encounter Must Support. - Done
      • Update CodeSystem - no values present???
      • add empty valueset for .code - done
      • add empty valueset for bodysite - done
      • add translations to laterality - NOT DONE
      • Addiction: José to add "addictionQuantifier" as a Ratio data type (which includes qty per period, and intervals e.g. "2 to 3 packs per day") - Done
      • Add examples - done
    • ScoreResult
      • Update all the codesystem codes - display in English, definition in English. And translations in fr-BE and nl-BE. For now we don't do de-BE.

  • Lifecycle of profiles between HL7 BE and eHealth
  • José to make a simple diagram for this lifecycle:
  1. HL7 Belgium will publish the profiles with the hl7belgium.org URL
  2. When HL7 Belgium requests eHealth to promote the profiles as federal standards,
    1. eHealth takes up the profile
    2. When eHealth completes the publication, HL7 Belgium marks the profile as "retired", and adds a note "This is replaced by a federal standard, please see here (with the link)"
  3. If at any point in time HL7 Belgium wants to update the profile, they can change the status again to Draft and continue

This means that HL7 Belgium has profiles in DRAFT mode (work in progress), Retired (taken up as is by eHealth) or Active (in the exceptional case where there is a deliberate difference between HL7 BE and eHealth profile specification.

Postpone to next call in January
