  • Designed as a tool to be used in recruiting for Connectathons
  • Want to build on the work done in 2013 shown in the spreadsheet including revisions to 2013 entries, additional entries and more international entries
  • Looking for input on existing entries
  • Will send out a survey/input sheet to the DCC and other domain representatives for groupings and profiles to add
    • Audience of the spreadsheet is implementers and the goal is to promote implementation of existing profiles
    • One other item to note on the spreadsheet for implementers: Is profile XXX a requirement for this initiative
  • We have a mechanism already for submitting deployment projects and these people on this spreadsheet are not submitting their projects.

      • Next steps - send out email to determine if anyone else is interested in joining the group and hold a call to discuss needs requirements and next steps
      • Hold an education session with DICOM to discuss tools they have used as well
