    • caDSR is not ready to move to 6.5.  6.4 will need to be maintained on production for them.

Discussion Points:

Decision Points:

  • Mayo team to add participants and time frame to the agenda.
LexEVS 6.5.0 Finalization

Discussion Points: 

  • Tuesday
    • What are the big ideas (overview of items) we want to get out of the meeting
    • This will drive the discussions over the next 2 days.
  • NCI Systems Discussions
    • Broaden the scope - what would they like to see out of our terminology resources. 
  • Time frame - 9:00 to 4:00 each day.  If we finish early, we can have wrap up/discussion on Thursday.

Decision Points:

Terminology Mapping

Discussion Points: 

  • Swiss Prot
  • ICD-O-3 to NCIt (also includes the meta CUI)
    • Mapping from NCIt to a source that is not loaded in LexEVS (point to a remote URI that is not resolvable)
  • Mapping and the triple store.  This could be a consistent API for LexEVS to pull from.

Decision Points:


Discussion Points: 

  • NDFRT is being replaced by MED-RT
    • NDFRT was published for the FDA
  • MED-RT is 1/2 a terminology and 1/2 a mapping
  • NDFRT content is moved to other terminologies (RxNorm and others) 

Decision Points:

  • Margaret will ask FDA if MED-RT should be published.
  • NCI will notify users of NDFRT and that it will be retired after a specific amount of time.
