3 Action Items Review
- Chair
  • 55: Showcase Vendor Display Policy was the subject of significant discussion as a result of Capsule's desire to support a Stryker bed in the ICU, and possibly several additional devices including a balloon pump.
  • Manny and Ken summarized the situation. Discussion identified these issues:
- How to maximize interest in the story (e.g., adding a balloon pump).
- How to provide parity between vendors. In this case Capsule, Cerner.
- How to avoid dilution of the story.
- How to avoid overly complex displays.
- Satisfy space and time limitations in preparation and in the demo.
  • More general issues include
- It was noted that HIMSS will have to address providing sufficient space to accommodate all who want to be participate in the Showcase and have passed the Connectathon.
- Need to address the potential participation of non-conforming systems that conform only because they are attached to middleware.
  • Policy
- For PCD issues that must be weighed in each situation that should be reflected in the policy include
- Recruiting of additional companies.
  • For the current issue defining what Capsule and Cerner should demonstrate
- Capsule and Cerner should have parity, the devices and communications should support the story.
- Manny suggested that we ask both companies for the minimal complement needed to display their actors and then optional additions to provide parity.
- Ken suggested providing guidance in the sense of providing what we want. For example, Capsule might support a balloon pump and a bed.
We need to limit the devices Capsule and Cerner provide. Ask what they will support (bed + one other) to be reviewed by cochairs for relevance, time and space requirements.
  • Policy:
- Steve is continuing to work on policy. He asked if there should be a priority order for PCD members to select the devices they want to show. Todd suggested that preference will be given to IHE members.
- Steve asked about resolution process if there is a disagreement. The cochairs recommended that this be the cochairs responsibility unless the issue required a vote of the PC.
- Todd reiterated Ken’s suggestion that we have to balance multiple priorities and desires. For example, recruiting new members, extending profiles, new directions, supporting the storyline, etc.
  • 57: Lisa was to talk with Didi about the Governance document, but no response to date.
