Domain Coordination Issues

  • Flow diagram documents process; new steps to strengthen process identified in red text
  • Proposed timeline is based on greater lead time to Connectathon than some domains currently maintain. Proposed timeline changes would need to be reviewed.
  • Proposal incorporates independent review by a Technical Review Board (TRB)
  • What would be its role? Advisory or executive (ie, pass/fail)? How distinguished from Domain Coordination Committee?
  • Advisory and mentoring relationship, particularly to new domains.
  • Could refer issues to DCC or Board for appeal to their executive power. Failure criteria could include testability and implementability; scheduling of release. Remedies could include recommended changes or republication for additional public comment.
  • Perhaps refer issues to DCC or Board for higher-level review?
  • Who would be included?
  • Teri's proposal based on DICOM WG-06 and HL7 Architecture Review Board
  • DICOM WG-06 has executive power. HL7 ARB is advisory.
  • Under proposal TRB would be composed of process mavens (6-8 members).
  • How would it be managed?
  • Developing governance rules is critical. Keep under authority of DCC and Board
  • Action Item: Teri S to develop one-page proposal describing TRB for review on March 15
  • Board discussion of Domain Coordination Strategic Planning
