1. 3. 3 Pediatric Immunization Purpose: This storyboard demonstrates the interaction between a Primary Care Physician (GP) to an immunization registry for the region. 1. 3. 3. 1 Pediatric Immunization Precondition: Billy Newpatient is 4 years old. He has been seen at other clinics in the region. However, he is a new patient at Dr. Primary's clinic. He is there for a pre-school physical. Dr. Primary's clinic EMR is able to interface with a regional immunization registry. The regional immunization registry conforms to public health standards, e. g. CDC Minimal Functional Standards for Immunization Registries. The clinic EMR conforms to HL-7 EHR-S Functional Model. The regional immunization registry is able to locate the patient's immunization record. Activities: By interview, the nurse discovers Billy's caretaker does not have his immunization record. In preparing his new patient record for Dr. Primary to review, the nurse initiates the clinic EMR to query the regional immunization registry. The immunization registry finds and sends data to clinic EMR. The clinic EMR populates Billy's patient record with that data. The clinic EMR generates immunization recommendations using a decision support engine. Alternate Flow #1: The regional registry uses a decision support engine and sends recommendations along with Billy's immunization data. Dr. Primary reviews the record and notes (amongst other data) Billy's immunization record (or its absence thereof) and recommendations. After taking history from the caretaker and performing physical exam, she orders immunizations. The nurse administers the shots and documents them in the clinic's EMR. The clinic EMR sends the message about the new immunizations to the state registry which updates its record. The nurse also prints an updated paper record of Billy's immunizations. Alternate Flow #2: Dr. Primary determines that Billy does not require or decides to withhold immunizations at this stage. No updates are made to the immunization history in the patient record. No data is sent to the registry. Post-condition: The regional registry has successfully sent Billy's immunization history. The regional registry has successfully recorded Billy's new immunizations. The clinic EMR has an updated immunization record. Billy's caretaker has an updated immunization record.
Two main issues n How to link functional standards and messaging standards n How to move to messaging standards
HL 7 Messaging Standard Activities 1. Storyboards 2. Interaction Models 3. Models (e. g. DMIM/s, RMIM/s, etc. ) 4. HL 7 Ballot 5. Message Specifications 6. Implementation Guide/s 7. Vocabulary 8. Serialized list of fields, by message 9. Message Samples 10. Mapping to existing applications and/or standards 11. Conformance and Compliance 12. Communication protocols 13. Tools

Immediate steps to developing HL 7 conformant messages n Developing the interaction models q q q n Domain Message Information Model (D-MIM) Refined Message Information Model (R-MIM) Hierarchical Message Definitions (HMD) Submit for HL 7 Ballot process q q Approve the D-MIMs, R-MIMs and HMDs Any new messages that require additions/modifications to the RIM, then these will need to be submitted to the RIM review process.
Messaging areas n EMR requests immunization history from registry q n EMR receives immunization record from registry q n Immunization Record Detail Query Response EMR receives immunization recommendations from registry or other systems q q n Immunization Record Detail Query Immunization Recommendations Query/Response EMR updates the immunization record of a patient in the registry q Immunization Event Record Request
Next steps n Move our storyboard towards messages n Continue to engage with HL 7 IZ project n Study Canadian IZ work to see how it applies to US/Pediatric domain n Ask for technical assistance q q q n Modeling and Methodology facilitator (to assist in developing DMIM, RMIM, HMD, etc) Publishing facilitator (learn how to use the publishing tools to build the topic) Vocabulary facilitator (to understand the vocabulary) Develop expertise to evaluate what has been done - understand how messages are developed HL 7 Development Framework q q HDF document HL 7 tutorials
