  • Each 20-minute timeslot will be allocated to a profile/white paper proposal… the first 10 minutes will be taken up by a presentation by the proposal author, with the remaining 10 minutes reserved for discussion and any disposition (if required).
  • Each 10-minute presentation will be comprised of a maximum of 5 Powerpoint slides, presenting the proposal concisely and completely.

9:00-9:10 Webinar Introduction, process Karen Witting, Claudio Saccavini : co-Chairs
9:10-9:30 ITI 3.0 Interlinked Registries (ILR) Derek Ritz Presentation Concern raised that this proposal will require careful scoping and understanding of available resources in order to ensure success in the one year timeframe. Understanding of requirements priorities will help this scoping.
9:30-9:50 ITI 1.0 OAuth option for mHealth Rob Horn Presentation Discussion of value of use case 1. Need greater understanding of the risks and benefits of using a draft standard. For planning purposes need better understanding of the requirements being addressed.
9:50-10:10 ITI 2.0 DSUB.b Mauro Zanardini Presentation Two parts of the request, first part simple extension to DSUB, second part more complicated "create a system of notification that is managed by access control policies", like BPPC associated with a subscription. Consider NAV profile. Look for overlap with other notification systems.
10:10-10:30 ITI 4.0 Extend XDW to XCA Charles Parisot Policy landscape will need to be expanded to allow for this. May consider XDR as part of the solution.
10:30-10:50 ITI 5.0

ITI 6.0

ITI 7.0

  • Rob Horn
  • Karen Witting
  • Eric Heflin
  • Findings Notification - have an architectural statement and thinking to write a draft profile and see if this helps reconcile the issues. White paper is "roaming around" but not officially published for feedback. Planning to publish in December timeframe.
  • DS* redocumentation - have completed high level model section. Plan for public comment in June or before.
  • Pseudonymization - Defined 9 chapters, first 4 are solid, ready for internal feedback. Next 4 targeted for 2 weeks for internal feedback. Formal review with other domains in november and public review in february.
10:50-11:00 Discussion, Next Steps Karen Witting, Claudio Saccavini : co-Chairs Agreed to use 30-1 hour for each of the new submissions, depending on size. Allow 30 minutes for each continuing work item and request a quick presentation of the work item progress and content.

Summary of decisions

The following table documents the decisions made during the meeting. The color of the row indicates the status:

  • orange - decided to deprecate
  • green - move to FT, detailed assessment for these profiles is below
  • yellow - considered for FT but decided to keep at TI
  • white - not ready for FT
TI Supplements FT/Remains TI/Deprecate Explanation/Conditions Followon Work
XCF TI Limited testing in only one region
XCPD TI Expecting significant activity in the coming year within the U.S..
XDW TI No NA Testing, significant testing in EU. CP's and other changes in progress, delay.
XUA++ FT Well tested except for authorization constent option. Delay due to fix needed. Fix is complete, expectation that testing will be without incident, move to FT.
Delayed Doc Assem TI Not enough testing
DSG TI In current form it is not ready to be integrated. Limited testing.
DEN TI Limited testing in only one region.
DSUB TI Significant changes in progress.
HPD TI Pilot program is in progress and will have lesson learned to be considered. Especially concerned with federation.
MHD TI Limited testing and profile changes expected.
NAV Deprecate Not found to be useful, not tested.
On-Demand Doc TI Expecting feedback from deployments in the coming year.
SVS FT Product use unknown but testing is significant, move to FT expected to help product uptake.
Metadata-Limited Doc Source FT XDM portion well tested with no problems. Expect XDM experience to apply also to XDR. Update testing spreadsheet with #s for XDM (Lynn)
XAD-PID Change Management TI Limited testing in only one region. Delay for additional deployment experience.
XDS Metadata Update TI Several open CPs. XDS portion well tested but little uptake of XDR portion. Open a CP to split apart XDR content. In the next year resolve XDS CPs so that portion can move to FT. (Rob)

Detailed assessments

Cross-Enterprise User Assertion - Attribute Extension (XUA++)
  • Has the profile been through a Connectathon in at least two regions?
    • Yes
  • Has the profile been successfully tested with all actors at least at one Connectathon?
    • Yes
  • Have different implementations of each actor in the profile been tested?
    • Yes
  • Have all the options been tested successfully at at least one Connectathon?
    • All but one, authorization consent. But is complete and we expect testing to happen next year.
  • Are there IHE-provided software testing tools to address all aspects of the profile?
    • No
  • Have the standards underlying the profile been implemented? In similar use cases? In healthcare? In general IT?
    • Yes, implemented
  • Do you have concrete reason to believe that this works robustly in the Real World / Are any products available for purchase that implement the profile?
    • Yes
  • Have all issues that may have been raised about the profile been resolved?
    • Yes
  • Has there been sufficient interest in the profile to generate a one-page overview of the profile
    • Not needed, is an extension of an existing profile

MOTION: proceed to final text

Discussion: Concern that one option has not been tested. That option is not tested because it needed a fix which is now complete. Since it is similar to other options, and those tested without incident, it is believed that testing of this option will not be an issue

VOTE: All approved

DECISION: Move to FT.

Shared Value Sets
  • Has the profile been through a Connectathon in at least two regions?
    • yes
  • Has the profile been successfully tested with all actors at least at one Connectathon?
    • yes
  • Have different implementations of each actor in the profile been tested?
    • yes
  • Have all the options been tested successfully at at least one Connectathon?
    • yes, but only 2 vendors for one of the options
  • Are there IHE-provided software testing tools to address all aspects of the profile?
    • Yes
  • Have the standards underlying the profile been implemented? In similar use cases? In healthcare? In general IT?
    • Although HL7 CTS has been changing we have not been impacted by those changes and would not be expect to be impacted in future.
  • Do you have concrete reason to believe that this works robustly in the Real World / Are any products available for purchase that implement the profile?
    • Unknown
  • Have all issues that may have been raised about the profile been resolved?
    • CP 570 assigned to Rob, capitalization problem. suggest reject CP because problem has been around for a while and not causing any problems.
  • Has there been sufficient interest in the profile to generate a one-page overview of the profile
    • Yes


MOTION: Motion to move to Final Text

Discussion: Final Text may help move this into product.

VOTE: All approved

DECISION: Move to FT


Support for Metadata-Limited Document Sources
  • Has the profile been through a Connectathon in at least two regions?
    • XDM portion is well tested across NA & EU but XDR has zero testing
  • Has the profile been successfully tested with all actors at least at one Connectathon?
    • XDM all, XDR none
  • Have different implementations of each actor in the profile been tested?
    • Yes
  • Have all the options been tested successfully at at least one Connectathon?
    • XDM yes, XDR no
  • Are there IHE-provided software testing tools to address all aspects of the profile?
    • No
  • Have the standards underlying the profile been implemented? In similar use cases? In healthcare? In general IT?
    • Yes
  • Do you have concrete reason to believe that this works robustly in the Real World / Are any products available for purchase that implement the profile?
    • XDM Yes. XDR less clear but Direct use case for XDR is compelling
  • Have all issues that may have been raised about the profile been resolved?
    • Yes
  • Has there been sufficient interest in the profile to generate a one-page overview of the profile
    • Not needed, not a new profile

MOTION: Motion to approve for FT

Discussion: Although XDR is not tested it is felt that the XDM testing applies also to XDR and the XDM testing has concluded with no problems found. Concern is that, although XDR is in use in many places, it is not something that systems feel compelled to test at a connectathon so may never get acually testing on it. TODO: Requested that the spreadsheet be updated with the correct #s for XDM - Lynn agreed to update.

VOTE: All approved

DECISION: Move to FT
