Convert various fields to coded in EHR Extract.


Various modelling details remain open in the current specification (Release 1.0.2). These include:

  • EXTRACT_SPEC.type is of type String; it should be changed to DV_CODED_TEXT

  • EXTRACT_ACTION_REQUEST.action is of type String; it should be changed to DV_CODED_TEXT.

  • EXTRACT_UPDATE_SPEC.trigger_events is of type List<String>, but it should be coded.

This looks like a reasonable update of the specification. We have not used this yet so the change would not make any impact now.

Agree to check with community to allow non backward compatible changes.

We haven't used it either, changes are ok

We need codes to be assigned and documented for these before this is published.

Need to at least specify new terminology groups and create CRs for the terminology specification. These CRs should include the new terminology groups and the new concepts required for each group so that concept IDs can be assigned.

The UML and published form of the doc now specifies terminology groups and also suggest some initial values for them. These are raised as a CR on the SPECTERM project.
