Domain Coordination Issues

1.) Cross-Domain Strategic WG update: (Karen Witting)

  • One hour board discussion; conclusion: complex topic, far ranging
  • agreed to convene a "Board retreat"; planning for date is underway -May or June probably
  • e.g., need a single, unified Mission Statement
  • Looking for retreat facilitator suggestions: Joe Biegel (McKesson), Gila Pyke (consultant from Canada)
  • Send suggestions for facilitators to Chris Carr and Karen Witting

2.) SNOMED Codes: (Juergen Brandstetter)

  • See presentation sent out in email Feb 28th; presentation given by Juergen
  • There are SNOMED codes which are MANDATORY for use by IHE in countries which do not have licenses for using SNOMED (see presentation for many more details and examples)
  • This infers that these IHE Profiles cannot be used in certain countries!
  • Create a small list/subset of mandatory codes and apply for IHE-wide waiver to SNOMED (Sondra Renly (Lab) has been through this process once.)
  • IHE Board has authorized request for IHE-wide waiver request to SNOMED; Need each domain to contrib info; Juergen is collecting information on specific codes required
  • Each domain needs to look at each profile and document mandatory SNOMED codes or state "not applicable"
  • Try to gather by April 30th, 2012. Will use Google doc/form created by Chris Carr after Juergen reviews it.
  • Teri SS to send out formal request to all domains.
