  • Advanced Diagramming Methods (UML, BPEL, etc.) in Technical Framework Documents: Do we need rules, processes around non-Word based diagram formats
  • QRPH has proposed using advanced diagramming in the RPE profile to describe BPEL transactions; requires additional tool and expertise and is not editable in MS-Word format
  • ITI uses modified HL7 CDA class diagrams for some profiles; dependent on one committee member with expertise and appropriate tool
  • Special diagrams often allowed in white papers
  • There may be cases where it is worth living with the additional complexity of process, because it makes authoring easier and diagrams more useful and readable
  • Need to develop some guidance on what is allowable and process to be followed
  • Author should identify source, tool used and provide original file for subsequent editing
  • May need to provide rationale and ask for approval for new tools being used
  • Action Item: Mary Jungers to develop form to gather information on advanced diagrams from authors
