Nutrition Standards: Another Step Forward

By Margaret Dittloff, MS, RD

Chair, Nutrition Informatics Sub-Committee on Interoperability and Standards

As promised, I wanted to post additional information about the work in progress on the Diet and Nutrition Orders Domain Analysis Model currently in progress on the Health Level Seven International (HL7) May 2012 ballot. This is the second “informative” ballot and reflects comments received from the first ballot from September 2011, along with new storyboards or real-life scenarios to support business process flow for dietitian consultations and nutrition assessment activities, based on the nutrition care process as they pertain to nutrition order modifications. This version of the model also includes more details for food allergies, food intolerances, and food preference order requests, which are an integral part of patient care.

Monday April 30, is the last day to sign up for this ballot. Members of HL7 or those who work in HL7-member health care organizations are encouraged to sign up by the April 30 deadline for the Diet and Nutrition Orders Domain Analysis Model ballot pool on the HL7 Web site and submit any comments by May 7, 2012.

To review the diet order model materials, follow these steps:

1.    Open a web browser.

2.    Go to: http://www.hl7.org/v3ballot/html/welcome/environment/index.html.

3.    Under Section 2 Welcome, click on: V3 Ballot Packagesthis section lists ballotable documents. You can use it to quickly identify the location of ballot items. Go here first!

4.    Under Section 4.1.2 Domain Analysis Model, click on: Diet and Nutrition Orders Domain Analysis Model, Release 2. (Note: The link on the Web site is mislabeled as Release 2, when it actually is Release 1, Informative Ballot 2.)

If you are a member of HL7 or work in an HL7-member health care organization, you can submit comments by following these steps:

1.       Open a Web browser.

2.       Go to: http://www.hl7.org/v3ballot/html/welcome/environment/index.html.

3.       Under Section 2 Welcome, click on: HL7 V3 Ballot Instructions. This section provides information helpful in completing the HL7 V3 ballot.

If you are not a member of HL7 but would like to submit comments, please send your comments to Lindsey Hoggle (lhoggle@eatright.org) by Friday, May 4. We realize time is short. However, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics will compile all comments received by this deadline and submit them together as the Academy’s official vote.
