Domain Coordination Issues

3. HL7 Task Force Update

  • Progress toward updated Appendix C with HL7 version compatibility info
  • HL7 CDA schemas on forge to be organized by HL7 versions and include version guidance
  • Discuss with PCC and other domains whether these are changes that need to be indicated in profiles in Technical Framework documents (rather than only publishing on Forge)

2. Technical Framework Publication Page

  • Goal of the page is to provide implementers with all the information they need
  • Divide materials into standard set of categories:

  • Not clear whether all white papers are for comment only; some may be relevant to implementation
  • Put all trial implementation supplements in a single list (changes tracked and otherwise)
