World Summit 2017

  • Status of discussion
  • The following conclusions/recommendations have been taken during the work with the representatives of IHE Japan, Korea and Australia together with the HIMSS AsiaPac staff:
  • The representatives of IHE Japan, Korea and Australia recommend holding that event
  • The event should be an “IHE World Summit”
  • Benefits are high, risk of brand damage is very low
  • The length should be a 1-day event as a pre-conference day to the HIMSS AsiaPac
  • HIMSS AsiaPac conference is an important event in that region, conflicts with other events are of lower risk
  • Location of the event: Singapore, Marina Bay Sands
  • Date of the event (proposed): Monday, September 11, 2017 (HIMSS AsiaPac conference is from Sep 11-14, 2017)
  • Format should be more in the style “IHE introduction/education” + real project/deployment reports out of Asian countries
  • Educational topics should include IHE General, Testing, CASC, Connectathon
  • More presentations, less panels/interaction
  • Participation generated out of IHE Japan/Korea/Australia alone about 20 persons
  • Speakers out of IHE Japan/Korea/Australia can be delivered (China should be added as well)
  • Formal approval needed for starting negotiations with HIMSS AsiaPac to create a MoU
  • Motion: Approve to continue negotiations with HIMSS to hold an "IHE World Summit" event in conjunction with the HIMSS AsiaPac conference as outlined
  • Result shall be a MoU between IHE and HIMSS, which is ready to be signed by the IHE International Co-chairs
  • Raised and seconded -> motion moved
  • Decision: Motion approved
  • Next steps:
  • TCon with HIMSS will be scheduled for creating a MoU (Jürgen will create a doodle)
  • Start Program Planning by everyone providing topic suggestions (Jürgen will start process after GDC call)

Education WG

  • Status
  • Educational concept ready, but creating the exams, etc. requires investment
  • Workitem is ready to proceed, but blocked at the moment by a pending financial decision
  • 2 options for unblocking:
  • (1) hire someone to do for money
  • (2) let those organizations do it volunterly and grant to them a timespan of "exclusiveness"
  • Status by now: will be worked out in the IHE International Board of Operations to present to the board for decision

Any other business

  • None
