IST35 - Portfolio 1 call announced - including 13606 renewal, and ISO EHR Requirements approval
There will be a Portfolio 1 call in the week of 21st-25th Feb to discuss a few outstanding documents. Please indicate your interest/availability on the doodle poll.
Even if you cannot make the times stated please add your name to the poll if you wish to be included in followup emails discussing the voting position on these documents. Comments by email would also be welcome, and Charlie McCay has provided some recommendations to help stimulate thought/discussion.
Standards for renewal (vote due 15/4/11):
Charlie McCay can supply copies of the documents to anyone who does not have access to the IST35 sharepoint site where they can be found under the voting tab.
Charlie recommends that we positively on 18308 - It has been edited by Dipak Kalra, and there has been ample opportunity to feed into the document. The contents have been reviewed by the editors of the HL7 EHR-FM and no conflicts identified.
The patient healthcard data specifications it is recommended (by Davie Hay, Christine Ranger and Charlie) that we continue to abstain on the basis that there are no known plans for healthcare use in the UK.
The vote to renew 13606 part 1 is worth discussion on the call or by email - Charlie's straw man proposal is this: there has been a good deal of talk about wanting to harmonise EHR content standards including those endorsed by ISO: 13606, HL7v3 CDA, etc. There are active projects such as CfH LRA work using 13606 in the UK, so Charlie would recommend that we do vote positively, and suggest establishing within ISO a common review date for all parts of 13606, HL7v3 RIM, and CDAr2 three years from now.
