      • FHIR Ballots naming convention has proposed: HL7 FHIR® [Release number] Implementation Guide: [Work Group name]; [application name]; Release [IG release number] – is that realistically the case?
    • Proposed changes to GOM from ArB:

  7. Open Issues List


  • Minutes accepted via general consent.
  • Project approval request for CQF-based HQMF IG: Motion to send to ArB for clarification regarding product family issue by Andy; Lorraine seconds. Negative: 0 Abstain: 0 In Favor: All
  • CDS KAS DSTU Update 3: Pat will contact Security regarding this
  • CDS Big Picture IG: Pat spoke with them and it is not a new product. It is an informative document on how to use the standards and the IGs. Motion to change new product to new modified HL7 policy/procedure process and approve by Pat; John Q. seconds. Opposed: 0 Abstained: 0 In Favor: All
  • May Ballot Approvals:
    • Cross-pardigm Logical Model naming issue: Does Cross-paradigm become a family name if we add it? Motion to accept name including cross-paradigm by Paul; Freida seconds. Opposed: 0 Abstained: 0 In favor: All
    • FHIR naming: are they using WG names? General FHIR ballot is across whole spec so it is unlikely they’d use WG name. Unless compelling reason, simply use application names for searchability. Motion to discourage the use of WG names in formal document names for FHIR by Paul; second by Andy. Opposed: 0 Abstained: 0 In favor: All
    • Went through ballot approval document with name changes. Made adjustment to include US Realm in Cross-Paradigm logical model. Discussion over requested name change on Clinical Quality Language (CQL)-based Health Quality Measure Format (HQMF), Release 1 - US Realm. Motion to accept Language vs. Framework by Lorraine.
  • Motion to accept ballot proposals as adjusted conditional upon completion of reconciliation activities by March 22 by Pat; Lorraine seconds. Discussion over project 1147 having an outstanding negative on previous ballot – determined that it should not affect project going to ballot. Opposed: 0 Abstained: 0 In favor: All
  • ArB updates to GOM: Tony describes proposed updates and reasoning behind them. Additional change to what is in the agenda: Change chair/vice chair to simply co-chairs. Reason for changes is that ArB representatives have a high number of non-US participants. Lorraine states that part of this is to keep members of ArB that would likely be lost if requirements are not adjusted. Anne to update with piece that is missing re: co-chairs for next call. For March 23: Housekeeping: add homework section and drop this item in.
  • Discussion Attachments project that were in last week’s e-vote – sent back to DESD with comments for updates. Melva to send back and get updates and if they are planning to ballot this cycle. Add to agenda for next week and determine if HL7 Attachment Supplement Specificaiton: Request and Response IG R2 can go to ballot. Melva will invite rep from Attachments to discuss.
  • Call adjourned at 12:03
