  • Future knowledge levels identified: "Document sharing", "Radiology"
  • Discussion
  • Chris: Knowledge level "Imaging components" (across all domains) could be useful
  • Mike: How this program will be operated and delivered must be developed (online course, by training centers, etc.)
  • Stefan:
  • First the content must be developed, then an appropriate "exam" will be designed, then the delivery must be developed
  • Online course after HL7 manner is a good idea, but also certified exam-providers are possible

  • Feedback on Report Template
  • Reviewed Joyce's changes:
  • Adding "National / Regional Deployment Committee Contact:" A very good idea. This should be the primary contact. This one is also the GDC representative. Should be Name + EMail
  • Decisions:
  • Future DC reports shall be captured by a Google Form, ending up in a Google Excel, which provides us the information in a very structured way
  • First task: Identify all needed Information elements, then create the Google Form
  • Second task: Synchronize with a slide presentation, best to "generate" it automatically
  • Target date to release this new method: Mid-year 2015
  • Next steps until next call:
  • IMPORTANT: Identify key facts/numbers which are worth to be exchanged or have some marketing value
  • in form of information elements for the Google form
  • Possible new DC: IHE South Africa (Mike)
  • South Africa uses some IHE profiles in the national program
  • Some key people got infected with the idea to create an IHE South Africa
