Joint with QRPH

  • Review of change proposal
  • Decided we needed to split the proposal into at least two change proposals. The first to be of the simple clean up and reorganization issues. The second to include all proposed additions. It is likely there are more consequences to the additions and need more review and study.
  • Discussion re: value sets being coupled or de-coupled. Having SHALL value sets may limit the uptake of the profiles. In this case requiring LOINC codes can be a limiting factor. Proposal to change SHALL to MAY. This is a larger discussion that could affect all profiles. Decision today is to leave the SHALL in place here, add other items as needed to pass connectathon (through a change proposal). PCC Tech will keep the discussion of changing the SHALLS to SHOULDS or MAY.
  • Do not need to call out payers specifically. They are included in the Medical Summary Parent Document. For the US there will need to be a national extension (Volume 4) to call out the requirement (R or R2) for the payer section. A section that is not as needed in other countries.
  • CP - for LDS clean up, CP to add patient transfer entry to coded event outcome which is referenced in LDS document specification, CP for Antenatal testing codes to be added.

Nursing Workflow Paper

  • Reviewed changes made to date.
  • Continue to expand on the international pieces as commented on in document.
  • Upon completion - Send back out to PCC to read/review, Send back to Jim St. Clair, Joyce Sensmeier and Mary Jungers for review (allow 1 week).
  • Once reviewed and comments recieved from above list. Hold PCC voting call prior to release/publish. Would like to use the TI Publication call next Thursday to review. Need to get it out for review to commenters by end of today.

  • Vincent will send final changes to Laura and Laura ASAP
