  • "Optionality" Discussion/Informational Update - (15 min Steve Moore)
  • DICOM and HL7 v2.x - R, R2 and O is maintained for historical reasons (and has worked effectively)
  • PCC redefined R and R2 to meet their needs, as has Cardiology recently
  • CDA - move to newer methodology which has come out of the HL7 harmonization efforts
  • Affects upcoming QRPH and PCC F2F, as well as any other Content Module, decisions
  • Next task- PCC and others given Change Proposals to move to HL7 CDA model moving forward
  • Leave old CDA templates "as is", change current Public Comment and moving forward; revisit old CDA documents as time permits
  • Be sure not to be silent on nulls - explicitly state permitted or not
  • Steve Moore to submit more concrete proposal for PCC and QRPH (and other CDA Content Modules) moving forward

Documentation, Websites and Public Information

  • IHE International Webinar Series: Planning, dates, contributors (10 min - Celina Roth)
  • Review process for items being added to ihe.net (10 min - Chris Carr)
  • Updating old material - noted that Profile Descriptions on www.ihe.net are out of date and should be updated to match the wiki description for general user

Process Improvement

  • Public Comment Process (10 min - Nichole Drye-Mayo and/or Steve Moore)
  • Change the process for entering public comments from RSNA Forums to Google Docs. We can publish a form that someone can fill in that will map directly to the columns in the spreadsheet we use for tracking. Nichole did a prototype of this. She can present that work or Steve can.
  • This is urgent because the F2F meetings for ITI/PCC/QRPH will need to reference some mechanism for entering comments. Default would be to fall back to the RSNA Forums. It would be helpful to use this new Google Doc mechanism.

Governance Implementation

Next steps and New Actions Items
