GCPR GRM zGRM Goals zBrief History zRole of HL7 zRole of other Standards Models zWhere we are
GCPR GRM -- The Present zStatus of the GRM zGaps in the model zIdentified collaboration opportunities with HL7
GRM -- The Future zGRM = Domain Model + Computational zCornerstone Deliverables yGRM Product Description Document yGRM Modeling Approach Document yGRM Utilization Guide(s) yHL7 Rules of Engagement Approach
GRM and HL7: Open Questions 1) When should we engage HL7? 2) How should we engage HL7? 3) What should be done informally vs formally? 4) Whom should be engaged? 5) When does the Govt SIG become involved?
GRM and HL7: Current CONOPS zRefine and extend the model ySecurity Example (RIM) yLanguage Example (RTM) zForward and backward harmonization zPropose extensions but continue working (e.g., cannot risk HL7 interdependency with project timelines) zRole of GRM Team and HL7
Symbiotic Outcomes (for GCPR) yAbility to leverage significant existing work (Utilization of RIM 3.0) yField-test HL7 Clinical Templates yTap into existing expertise and knowledgebase (for HL7) yRefine and contribute to areas of the RIM 3.0 model (i.e. security) yGained experience in applying the model both to large provider environment and via current technology yTerminology refinement and detail definition yCreation of HL7 Clinical Templates yGreater involvement in SIGS and Technical Committees Others?
