Review of Meeting Notes: Corrections should be made to the Wiki; significant issues placed on agenda of the next meeting

Item Topic Discussion
1 Introductions & Agenda Review
- Manny
Added: Monroe experienced a time out problem with the MWB.



2 Action Items
- Manny

Those discussed and due Feb. 11 were:

  • Revised approach to the scenario and story line - the Task Force meets again after the weekly meeting next week and a "reading" of the script will be scheduled for Friday the 20th.
  • The Showcase registration process holds promise because the number is expected to be in the range of 300-500 people. PCD participants using PAM can accommodate this number. There may be an issue with the bar code (extraneous characters) that may require PCD to develop a contingency plan. No printers will be required.
  • GE's concerns about staffing - closed.
  • NIST support of PCD profile validation - may take place after the Connectathon.
  • PCD structure at Showcase - Manny will discuss with Elli this week.
  • New Directions wall - planning has begun.
  • PCD Docent training - will begin after Connectathon run through.
  • Showcase block diagram - has been distributed to PCD members for review. Will be used in recruiting at the Connectathon and helpful to participants in advance of the Showcase.
  • MAC Addresses - those who haven't communicated them to Steve Moore need to do so.
  • Virtual Connectathon - members were asked to speak out if they had any difficulty. No significant issues were raise.
  • Change proposal for PIB ADT - no one could remember what this refers to.

Items with other dates:

Those closed were:

  • Focus on printers.
  • Narrow the focus on the Scenario to the Task Force effort.
  • GE's concerns about staffing.
  • Bar codes for pumps.
  • Structure electrical, networking.



  • As above.
3 Issues and Questions
- Manny
  • Monroe experienced a time out problem with the MWB - a time out inconsistent with the log. He contacted Peter Rontey.



4 Connectathon Planning
- Manny
  • Status report on tests for Connectathon
- Kudu will contain two parts for each test: a descriptive section and a series of detailed steps. The steps and descriptions have been distributed for DEC and PIV. The steps have been distributed for ACM. A common approach to patient demographics for all profile tests, and tables for PIV tests have been defined and distributed. Descriptions for ACM will be distributed Monday. PIV met and reviewed the tests in detail and changes will be made and then these will be posted to Kudu.
  • Participants can test with two patients' devices and data (e.g., two pumps, two beds, two ARs or one AR with two patients)
