PHASE 4 OF THE HL7 VULCAN ACCELERATOR – GRAVITATE HEALTH ePI TRACK AT THE 31st HL7 FHIR CONNECTATHON
The Vulcan / Gravitate Health – ePI/IPS track is Phase 4 of an ongoing series, spanning multiple Connectathons, to test the creation, exchange and display of electronic Product information (ePI) and the International Patient Summary (IPS) as FHIR Documents.
Each phase will include increased numbers of product information and increasingly complex healthcare/life scenarios.
Track Objective is to test and gather feedback on the following:
- Draft Core ePI Implementation Guide before ballot
- Core ePI Profile vs national/regional profiles
- G-Lens business rules and its connection to HL7 accelerators besides Vulcan
- Gravitate Health Federated Open-Source Platform and Services (FOSPS) a’ version and its support to end-to-end scenarios.
The track is supported by Gravitate Health, the EU funded project UNICOM, and supports the ePI pilot project at the European Medicines Agency.
Stay tuned to find out more about the agenda for ePI track Phase 4.
