73 Collaboration with HIBCC - transferred from TC Todd Cochairs and TC 10/2/08 OPEN Todd received material from HIBCC. Todd was told that internationally, GS1 is preferred, while HIBCC is preferred in the US.
74 Clinical Recruitment Ray Cochairs and PC OPEN OPEN
  • (Zambuto) Review IHE membership to identify recruitment opportunities.
  • (All) Identify invitation opportunities for participation in the October F2F.
  • (Cooper)Update profiles wiki page so as to capture the attention of clinical reviewers.
  • (Zambuto) Ask Mario Castenada re. KP participants (perhaps also Michael Robkin)
  • (Zambuto) Ray will contact Rick Schrenker re F2F participation. Dr. Mun may attend F2F.

76 Cochairs Election Preparation Ray Ray, Manny 10/2/08 OPEN Ray will contact three potential PC cochairs and two potential TC cochairs.
77 Monitor HITSP development of RMON and coordinate a demonstration with HITSP. Todd 10/2/08 OPEN Todd will monitor and coordinate with HITSP.
78 Foster collaboration with Continua and monitor developments. Coordinate with Didi, Joyce. Sept. 17 Todd Paul 10/2/08 OPEN Paul will do what he can to act as a point of contact to foster communication between PCD and Continua.

HITSP, Continua and PCD were represented on a conference call earlier, with no agreement on how to encode and send the messages. While RTM appears agreeable for coding parameters and units of measure, Continua does not want to use PCD-01, which was the placeholder construct at an RMON meeting in Chicago. Continua may submit an alternative.

The MOU between IHE and Continua may permit a limited, low cost membership permitting PCD representation at meetings. Another approach is to start with Rosetta. As for joint demonstrations, that may be more difficult since Continua has held several “plug fests” and has the resources to proceed independently, but this may be possible.

79 PCD to develop the MOU with Julian. Ken 10/2/08 OPEN To enable coordinating profiles, similar to the Continua document. Ken will open discussion with Julian re the MOU, develop draft.



Todd Cooper, Ken Fuchs, Ray Zambuto, Manny Furst
