Hi Renato,
I quite understand your concern. We need to discuss deeply this esp. wrt 
the requirements of the W3C Privacy review (understand and implications) . 

However it's the responsibility of every one to make its data public or 
This doesn't prevent us to provide a way of expressing data (for those who 
want to do so) with FHIR standard using schema.org
Exposing this to public it's another story and we are not constraining 
people to do so. But expressing it (probably share it, under precise 
privacy constrains- between APIs) should be encouraged.

Just for your example, we are already expressing our internal healthcare 
data (and EHR data) using schema.org (although they are not public).
This has a benefit when we need to share such data with another APIs and 
there HL7 FHIR comes in as a standard.

Kind Regards,

Marc Twagirumukiza

Subject:        FHIR on  schema.org

I would like to raise a concern about the FHIR on Schema.Org proposal [1] 
discussed at the last teleconference [2].

The issue is about the conflicting purposes of the two. Schema.org is 
(primarily) about publishing structured data via public web pages for 
improved search engine experiences. FHIR is (primarily) about healthcare 
data about people.

Clearly, there is a significant Privacy issue with FHIR data, that should 
*not* be made on public web pages (for Goggle/Bing to consume),

How will this issue be addressed?

(As it stands, the proposal would not meet the requirements of the W3C 
Privacy review [3].)
