Member Driven Committees

Member Driven Committees are committees whose make-up is composed of volunteer Logica members. Logica member representatives vote the leaders of these committees in. These committees report to the Board of Directors.

Technology and Architecture Committee

The Technology and Architecture Committee exists to provide oversight to its subordinate workgroups. The primary purpose of the committee is to help manage the interdependencies and/or conflicting priorities between its subordinate committees. For example, an Logica enabled application developer may request support for read and write operations of a new clinical data type. The Technical Steering Committee would help coordinate with the Modeling & Terminology Committee to create the required FHIR profile, the Technical Specification Workgroup to define the supporting services specification, and the Reference Implementation Workgroup to implement it.

Technical Specification Workgroup

The Logica Architecture Workgroup is responsible for specifying the logical architecture and Logica Technical Specification. It is a goal of this committee to create a specification that will gain ubiquitous EHR vendor adoption.

The first set of features include:

  • HL7 FHIR Data Services
  • Authorization & Authentication
    • OAuth 2 profiles in conjunction with SMART
    • OpenID Connect in conjunction with SMART
    • Support for synchronous and asynchronous interaction with the platform
  • Application Launch Context
  • Workflow
  • Eventing & Triggering (Including data drive, time drive, etc.)
  • User Notification & Messaging
  • Decision Support Rule Execution
  • Application hosting and distribution standards

The workgroup is also responsible for specifying the next generation logical architecture and technical specification. This specification will exist to allow for advanced technical features to be defined as part of a standard that may not otherwise be supportable by existing EHR vendors.

Use Cases Include:

  • Cross organization referrals
  • Immunizations
  • Care Coordination across multiple organizations
  • Population Health Management
  • Activity & Workflows

Reference Implementation Workgroup

Sandbox Workgroup

The Sandbox Workgroup is responsible for overseeing the instantiation, population of relevant data, and day-to-day management of at least one Logica compliant sandbox. Additionally, the committee is responsible for providing usage documentation (such as getting started guides) and interactive on-boarding support to Logica member platform and application developers.
