IHE International Board Meeting @ HIMSS.18, Las Vegas, NV - Paul Dow (5 Mins)
The Cardiology Domain report for 2017-2018 was to be presented during the meeting at HIMSS. However, due to other agenda topics using more of the allotted time for impromptu discussion. The document was forwarded to Chris Carr, and a 2 minute overview was shared. THe full report will be presented at future time TBD. Chris Carr will contact us with possible times to share the information.
CPN Extensions - Charles Thomas (30 Mins)
Data dictionaries for all NCDR vocabularies are being consolidated into a single dictionary. This will be initially released with Cath PCI 5.0. The exact release date of this dictionary is 3/21/2018. Jon Fast will get the latest version and forward it to Paul, who will forward it to the group. The ACC/NCDR will most likely submit this dictionary to SNOMED for inclusion. The responsibility for ongoing maintenance of the vocabulary would belong to the ACC. IHE could offer extensions of the terminology and support for implementations. This would allow new technologies to be added in a timely fashion. A process like this will help standardize ongoing maintenance.
Next Steps: Charles Thomas will submit requests for time at the upcoming F2F meeting
