General Committee Business

1. Roll Call see Roster

2. Review of Minutes

3. New Business: from Future Agenda Topics Page

  • Coding scheme designators
  • RO has developed coding scheme values for testing purposes. Chris Pauer raised the question of whether these should be incorporated in the relevant profiles and designated as IHE codes.
  • IHE generally avoids developing new standards, so if there are available coding schemes these should be used and referenced. If there are none, the codes developed could be submitted to an SDO such as DICOM for incorporation in their standards.

Domain Coordination Issues

  • Cross-Domain Strategic Planning Work Group
  • Refined questions for a survey of domains:
  • Do you think your domain has a unified view?
  • Can you state the unified strategic view of your domain?
  • What processes do you follow to achieve those strategic goals?
  • Do you think the quality of your profiles meets the standards it should to be effective?
  • What quality metrics?
  • How are they applied?
  • Do you think the profiles you develop meet user needs?
  • What steps do you take to gather feedback on whether your profiles meet user needs?
  • How is this information used in assessing the domain's strategic view and evaluating the status of published profiles?
