  • Progress on user-centered definitions

    • User-Centered Definitions (Google Doc allows for further comments)

    • Formal definitions will be used to develop an computer-readable ontology

    • Completed:

      • Clinical Consequences:   discussion about beneficial clinical consequence example; will be updated as per Evan’s comments

      • Evidence:  minor edits; will also need to add examples of types of evidence described in definition

    • Direction moving forward:

      • Mechanism of Interaction

        • Qualtrics will be sent out ASAP

      • Frequency of Harm

        • Draft by the end of July

      • Middle of August:  remaining definitions

        • i.e., contextual information/modifying factors, recommended actions, seriousness rating

  • User Stories and Use Cases

    • Descriptions of the users who will be using this information model

    • Google Doc listing information needs has been developed; further development into user stories

    • Elizabeth and Louisa will be reaching out to task force members for feedback on user stories

      • Elizabeth:  clinicians

      • Louisa:  clinical decision support

      • Will take 1-2 more weeks to get the Google Doc together; will be updated by July 18th

    • Medication Reconciliation Use Cases

      • Elizabeth has interviewed a hospital pharmacist and will interview a consultant pharmacist in order to develop 2-3 detailed use cases

      • Question about whether to use Suggested potential drug-drug interactions for use cases

        • Proposed adding linezolid + SSRI as a potential drug-drug interaction, based on hospital pharmacist discussion

          • Modifying factors are unknown; where you would give this pair is set by the indications of the drugs

        • Added a new category:  DDI where modifying factors are not known

          • Very common in clinical practice

  • Decision Tree Development

    • Need to delegate the further development of decision trees for the project

      • Remaining:  DDI pairs that do not have highlights

    • We want something very similar to the decision trees we have in place

      • Describe what the interaction is (fairly specifically)

      • What things would be helpful for a clinician to know?

    • Sub-group:  Evan, Dan, John

      • Evan – Tyrosine kinase inhibitors + proton pump inhibitors, Warfarin + etoposide

      • Dan – Tamoxifen + paroxetine, MAOIs + stimulants
