How best address incompatibility of interoperable systems that may affect patient care -- Discussion may be needed in the document to explore the possible incompatibility of a BCMA of one vendor with pumps of another that could affect performance (e.g., piggy back) or safety (an IOP assuming certain behavior at the pump which is not implemented).

Surgical Information Systems is joining this cycle.
HIMSS/Continua desire to have collaboration on display at the Showcase. Todd to ask Joyce how this will be achieved.
  • HITSP/AHIC RMON – desire is to have PCD and Continua develop coordinated approach.
  • PCD/Continua: No information on Common Device Connectivity. Paul: AHIC expressed strong interest in a single coding of parameters.
Paul wondered if there are additional ways to show Continua that HL7 v2 would work for them. John has provided a presentation within Philips. PCD-01 is not overly complex for home health.
Todd will develop a Wiki page to describe PCD/Continua collaboration.
  • PIV comments about patient safety when interoperable, but potentially not completely compatible systems are deployed: PIV suggested this be addressed by the IHE. Todd suggested this be moved to the Regulatory White Paper.
  • WSJ article – ask Ray , Elliot to bring marketing / publicity issue to IHE International Board
  • Australia – Todd pushed PCD, ISO 80001 and CE-IT Community. Found a lot of interest in Australia. He will attempt to get Australian involvement in PCD and perhaps a roadshow in their September IHE Australia meeting. He will attempt to interest Engineers Australia in leading the effort.
