Domain Coordination Issues

  • Strategy for incorporating FHIR into IHE profiles and Connectathon testing
    • Review on action item:

Action: Laura and Chris will work together to create a reference point (spreadsheet) for tracking use of resources in profiles. Spreadsheet should include resource, profile referencing the domain, date of publication, DST version and status (frozen, stable, fluid, in flux), future information know.

    • Action: Make tracking proposal by Jose a discussion item for the Documentation Work Group agenda. Goal is to supplement the current tracking spreadsheet with additional information about the status of underlying standards.


  • Proposal from Testing and Tools Committee for a policy adding new status for profiles under development
  • Introduce distinction between Trial Implementation and proposed new status of "In Development" (or similar title) based on maturity of underlying standards. If incompatible changes in the underlying standard are judged to be imminent, the domain committee would publish the profile as In Development. Current versions of MHD and other FHIR-based profiles would be considered In Development.
  • Testing of ID profiles at Connectathon would be limited to guided interoperability testing with no claim of validation.
  • Connectathon Results Database would be expanded to include the status of the profile tested (ID?/TI/FT).
  • Recording versions of TI profiles in Results DB is another potential step. Identify major/minor version changes: incompatibilities in major versions; minor versions indicated to the right of decimal point. Major changes are required to go through public comment cycle again and get major version increment. Mary currently uses this version numbering as part of her regular publication process.
  • Chris has drafted "stub" text on Profile Status on the Profile Design Principles page. Need help to flesh out.
  • Action: Request 2 or 3 people willing to work on developing a draft of a profile status policy and a recommendation back to T&T about what info is published in connectathon results. Need this completed in the next 4-6 weeks. Chris will draft text but needs help in shaping and reviewing. Mary Jungers volunteered. Co-chairs requested to extend invitation to participate to interested committee members. Email TPM's for assistance, too.


  • IHE-RO Use Case Progress Update (Chris Pauer)
  • RO has developed four profiles and published for public comment. Limited comments received.
  • Mary will make sure that all comments received are conveyed to committee.
  • RO technical committee holding face-to-face meeting next week
  • Chris Pauer will submit to Mary for review and publication.


  • Lunch and Learn
    • Two sessions at the Connectathon
