  • Action: Secretariat to ensure that valid rosters are posted for all committees

Domain Coordination Issues

1. Outcome of Discussion on PAM, SWF and HL7 Versioning

Committee members and other ITI and Rad Domain participants held a tcon on March 28 (see Minutes) to discuss how to address specific conflicts between Rad SWF and ITI PAM, as well as more generally how different versions of HL7 are used in various profiles and domains. The outcome was to propose creation of a review task force specifically focusing on HL7 issues.

a. Proposal to create Cross-domain HL7 Review Task Force

  • HL7 Review Committee would take resolving PAM-SWF conflicts as first assignment
  • Would also develop "cookbook" of best practices in using HL7 in IHE Profiles: see Guidelines for Profiles Incorporating HL7 Messaging
  • Would address the question of whether/how to use HL7's profiling
  • Do we generalize the model and have comprehensive set of review committees address all profiles? Leave as an open issue and review the outcome of this HL7 Review task force as a pilot task force
  • Committee Vote: Motion to establish HL7 Review Task Force approved unanimously
  • Action: All domains to be represented: Secretariat and Technical Co-chairs to recruit at least one volunteer to represent
  • Action: Didi and Chris will organize recruitment and meeting planning
