- Letellier, Simon (EAHP)
- Robberecht, Marc (Agfa Healthcare)
The IHE Pharmacy Supply Chain white paper is reviewed during the session.
- Definitions are useful for the use cases.
- We need to ensure all topics explained are used in the document and vice versa.
- The definitions will be checked and filled with the IHE Glossary, HMW definitions (and Wikipedia ?).
- Do we need a glossary in one place in the document ?
- This part of the WP will be completed after finishing the rest and be aligned with the IHE glossary.
- Centralise use of dedicated terminology at the glossary.
- It remain unclear if the term "Preparation" describes the actor clearly.
- Suggestions were made to introduce a more granular terminology and description.
- Dispense: Initiated by the Pharmacy or an (Automated) Dispense Cabinet: "distribution" of drugs to next actor,
- Preparation: make the medication (repackaging, compounding),
- Allocation: making ready at patient's side to be administered / assigning an item or set of items to a particular administration event.
- Mixed use of Preparation and Dispense was noticed in the HMW. Ex: in the "Preparation report - Pharm H3"
- Alignment with HMW and IHE glossary should be done based on decision of the use of "Allocation" as last step before administration.
- Check for alignment of all terms between HMW, IHE glossary and WP; also in the diagrams. Make HMW CP where needed.
Ward stock refills use cases
- Replacing a drug by a new equivalent
- The need of a sequence diagram remains to be decided, based on more detailed story board.
- This also goes for the other less documented use cases.
- Simon is working on it, based on his stories
- Marc will add new sequence diagrams where needed.
- Have to detail the sequence diagramm to choose.
- What are the scope boundaries of the WP? To be clearly defined and described.
- Common understanding was that the refill request can be the same as a supply order.
This goes for all intra-hospital communication for the procurement actor:
"The procurement actor and associated actions inside the hospital need to be aligned with the other supply chain messaging."
- Should this be a dedicated use case or should we mention the traceable items follow the same flows, with inclusion of details in the messages and refer to the general sequence diagram?
- A detailed storyboard will be delivered to decide whether this is a dedicated use case.
- Add more detail on the use of traceable items (recall, BCMA, …).
Other Use Cases
- Chapters 7 and 8 removed and replaced by reference to special use of medication in dedicated domains
- Operating Theater,
- Emergency, …
to other IHE or standard workgroups.
