CH AllergyIntolerance FHIR IG for Switzerland, see also


Working history

version 0.1.0 following IPAG recommendations, based on IPS as near as reasonable

Pre: gofsh 0n AllergyIntoleranceIPS


everything removed which doesn't seem to be needed for AllergyIntolerance, except aliases and invariants and index

PatientUvIps profile removed from index e.g. in profiles 53, 145

  • subject only Reference(PatientUvIps)

PersonalRelationshipUvIps not yet removed from ValueSets and index

PractitionerRoleUvIps profile removed from index

PractitionerUvIps profile removed from index

ProblemSeverityUvIps ValueSet not yet removed from valuesets

QuantityIPS profile reintroduced just before RageIPS as referenced in profiles

SnomedIntlGps ValueSet removed from index (Description: """SNOMED International Global Patient Set (GPS) value set. The value set includes all of the codes from the SNOMED International Global Patient Set (GPS) subset of SNOMED CT. The current version of the value set contains all concepts (21,782) from the September 2019 release of the GPS (based on the July 2019 SNOMED CT International Edition release) plus seven recently added concepts for Coronavirus (from the March 2020 Interim International Release) (total 21,789 concepts). )

absence-to-snomed-uv-ips Instance will need action to reduce it's absent data to be related to AllergyIntolerance t.b.d.

absent-unknown-uv-ips absent-unknown-uv-ips dito (the same as above) t.b.d.

current-smoking-status-uv-ips Instance removed, also from index

to sushi-config.yaml added: dependencies: version: 1.2.0 uri: id: chcore

PatientUvIps replaced by CHCoreCompositionPatientEPR

Note: this stage eventually could be used for a later mapping from CH-AllergyIntolerance to IPS AllergyIntolerance

Renaming AllergyIntoleranceUvIps to CHAllergyIntolerance, and its id, Description and other Metadata In order to run sushi correctly, its reference had also to be adapted in Profile: CompositionUvIps

  • section[sectionAllergies].entry[allergyOrIntolerance] only Reference(AllergyIntoleranceUvIps)
  • section[sectionAllergies].entry[allergyOrIntolerance] only Reference(CHAllergyIntolerance) this has to be considered later after adaption to the correct CH Composition t.b.d.

  • ^identifier[0].system to be verified t.b.d.

commenting out CHAllergyIntoleranceDocumentEPR

Solution thanks to Michaela Ziegler, ahdis: using Canonical:

  • entry[Composition].resource ^type.profile = Canonical(CHAllergyIntoleranceCompositionEPR)

=> now OK version 0.1.0

version 0.2.0 based on feedback IPAG, eHealthSuisse, Input from SNOMED CT Implementation Guide

dependencies: 2.0.0 instead of former 1.2.0 2.0.5 instead of former 2.0.4

references to CHCoreCompositionPatientEPR replaced by CHCorePatientEPR /* * extension[setId] ^short = "Set ID" */

  • section[allergyIntolerance].author only Reference(... or CHCorePractitionerRoleEPR or .. instead of CHCorePractitionerRole

=> error resolved by replacing CHCorePractitionerRoleEPR by => naming inconsistency to reported t.b.d.

=> conformance to 2.0.0 achieved

pre coordinated values added to reaction.substance and code, but no post coordinated values (awaiting them to be added as precoordinated o^codes by SNOMED CT)

fixing some minor instance (examples) issues.
