Updates on Federal Profile publication

Robin will send an update on the profiles to be published by eHealth:

  • Addiction
  • Communication
  • Homecare Plan
  • Homecare Team
  • Patient Will
  • Problem
  • Score Result
  • Vaccination

There are empty value sets. How to proceed?

  • We will publish empty Valuesets, but there will be a remark to implementers that they can use the profiles - they just have to use any codes they find best.
    • Communication (in the email, or in the implementationguides) could be something like "These valuesets are currently empty - this means that there are no standard codes defined yet; Implementers are welcome to use the codes they have available. We strongly encourage implementers to keep track of their value sets, to facilitate the migration when standard codes are published."
  • Robin will send out an email proposing the federal profiles (those listed above and the respective terminology, examples, etc.) - latest 8th February
  • This communication will mention that this is on behalf of eHealth plattform AND HL7 Belgium
  • Robin will invite people to give feedback until 8th March
  • HL7 Belgium will NOT publish an official implementation guide before 8th March
  • After 8th of March, HL7 Belgium may publish the implementation guide with the incorporated feedback, and not replicating the eHealth content, but just inheriting this.
    • HL7 Implementation Guide will not add any normative material, but may add informative material (text, examples, testing, etc).
    • HL7 may still accept feedback, but not on the HL7 official IG - all feedback is only for the continuous development, and not for the official publication.
