About

HL7 CanadaWelcome to the Canadian FHIR implementation community forum. The purpose of this forum is to collaborate on areas of FHIR implementation that will advance implementations across Canada, while contributing to the global adoption of FHIR. The objective is to develop pan-Canadian approaches to constraining and extending FHIR. The community has been active since January 2016 and has been growing ever since!

The community has several streams of activity:

  • Topical workstreams
  • Monthly community calls to share workstream progress and other FHIR-related news

Greetings, On September 29, the open review for the eReferral - eConsult Interoperability Specification (iGuide) will be launched through a webinar. To enhance the eReferral and eConsult processes digital solutions are being enabled with improved data standards for interoperability. We all recognize that clinicians need to be able to refer patients to the care they need, anywhere in the province and also need to work with other medical providers to answer patient-specific questions for eConsult. Current referral and consultation processes are a barrier to this. Electronic referral (eReferral) systems enable health care providers to digitally initiate, receive, manage and track referrals, and where appropriate use electronic consultations to support faster access to expert advice. An introductory webinar will be hosted on September 29 to provide a high-level review of the eReferral - eConsult Interoperability Specification and related material, including the process for submitting feedback. Anticipated Key Dates: 1. September 29: eReferral - eConsult Webinar (11:30 am – 12:30 pm ET) 2. September 29 to October 26: Provincial Open Review 3. October 26 to November 23: OH comment disposition period 4. January 25: DHISC meeting interoperability specification approval Please circulate this email with your stakeholders. Contact us at [email protected] for questions and the invite to the webinar. Thank you, Digital Health Interoperability Standards Committee Secretariat Ontario Health

Morning all! Apologies for the day-of update on today's scheduled CA Baseline Profile Updates Call (2-3pm EST). I've been pulled into an urgent work session this afternoon that I can't shift or delegate. Please let me know (can reply to this post) if anyone planning to attend the call can host & facilitate in my stead (I would join at 2pm, assign you as meeting host, then leave). Focus for the session would really just be looking at issues in the log and/or take some early steps in looking at the iGuides from the Sept ballot mentioned prior - Sex&Gender, National Registries, and Cancer Checklist). I'll ask again in the first couple mins of the call, and if either no one joins or no one wants to host, I'll sign off and consider the meeting cancelled - best I can do. Sorry again for the hassle!

eReferral Spec Development work stream 09/13/22

Thanks for your feedback and thoughts on that, Tim. That is helpful. If there isn't currently a spot for Received Date, another thought, along with the possibility of adding to Task, is to possibly add Received Date as an extension to Service Requ...

eReferral Spec Development work stream 09/13/22

Interesting. My first thought was to use the "authored on" field in the service request, but that doesn't seem to quite fit your use case. Instead, this is a "task" concept about when the receiving system into or past one of the statuses that repr...
