Item Topic Discussion
1 Introductions & Agenda Review
- Chair
  • Christof Gessner (Germany) introduced himself.


  • Agenda was accepted with the addition of ICE-PAC.


2 Brief Profile Proposal Updates
- Chair
  • ACM – address profile update for AM – AC – AM
ACM needs to address the limited message capability of Polycom in the Showcase.
  • PIV – has the open issue of moving from HL7 v.2.5 to 2.6
  • RTM – Paul will provide an update in about a week. Paul is developing an XLST query to facilitate validation within the table. Ventilator nomenclature development still in process.
John Garguilo: NIST is working to provide an early test for this year against the harmonized value. For this first trial there will be no “failed” systems, just an indication.
Todd asked if there was linkage between the MSH 20 and OBX. Arbitrary information will remain used in MSH 20 until HL7 addresses the issue.
  • DPI white paper proposal is incomplete
  • MEM [add to agenda and possibly the Wiki page] Steve will schedule a meeting
  • QBD, WCM discussion deferred


  • Manny will send Monroe an email about the extension of ACM and limited message capability of Polycom in the Showcase.

- Chair
  • Tracy provided an update. Several meetings have been held. Many involved are in the Boston area.
  • PCA use case and clinical workflow is the first and should provide an opportunity to develop several building blocks. There is a meeting later today (3 EST).
  • Jan discussed the various components and interfaces with other systems (e.g., if needed data is in a clinical data sheet).



4 Announcements
- Chair




5 Showcase and Connectathon
- Manny


  • PCD will define use of the “4th wall”
  • John Garguilo indicated that NIST will have a demonstration of RTM testing.
  • Polycom has proposed a slide show related to the ACM extension to the AC messages. It may be placed on the 4th wall.
  • It is not clear which committee or if it is the WG that will determine the use made of the 4th wall.
  • Manny requested participants to send their physical and utility requirements and to provide draft scripts, preferably this week.


  • Pre-Connectathon tests are being developed. Virtual Connectathon testing will be scheduled to provide an extra level of assurance that systems will work. This was recommended by last year’s participants and made more important by the increased number of profiles that several companies will test in the limited time available at the Connectathon. PCD participants will set the schedule for the Virtual Connectathon.



6 Announcements
- Chair
  • IHE-IEEE MOU – no news.
  • Continua – no news.
  • Elections – Lisa will certify, announce the results
