3 Agenda Items
- As Noted
  • 3. ACM CP: Please see Item 5.
  • 4. Work Item Proposals:
It was noted that interest and priorities change with time. Proposals that were not highest priority in the past may be of greater interest now.
- RTLS: Briefly summarized, it was noted that there may be more interest this year.
- QBD: No work has been done. It may be of greater interest this cycle to provide trend data or to obtain asynchronous data.
- Cyber Security WP: work is underway.
- Clinical Decision Support: Ken suggested that QBD overlaps and may address this.
- MEM WP: Steve was not present to describe this.
- Event Communication: John Rhoads is developing a paper to help this become wider scope in the future.
- Device to Patient Association: Discussed last week.
  • 5. Profile Update:
- ACM: Profile will be revised for typos, dot notation resolution.
- WCM: Ken described the WCM discussion at the HL7/IEEE meeting. His proposal to remove grouping was approved. He will update the profile. The waveform class will be OBR and now needs to be formatted.
  • 6. TF Update: Attention turns to final text.
  • 7. Terminology Update:
- There’s a proposal from Clem McDonald who is with LOINC to add these codes to RTM. This would provide an integrated table.
- Oz Systems is using LOINC codes for hearing screening.
- Continua Board approved terminology for release to its membership. These may be added directly to NIST’s RTMMS.
- Paul suggested that RTM with its error detection should be “locked down” at some time in favor of hRTM with new entries vetted before addition.
  • 8. Tooling Update Deferred.
  • 9. October Meetings:
- IEEE 11073/HL7: Some revisions in process addressing corrections, minor changes. NIST’s RTMMS was discussed and whether IEEE will take responsibility. There was discussion of the Japanese MFER medical waveform and coding rules and the ASTM Point of Care standard. MFER is entirely separate and distinct from IEEE’s coding and may be sequestered. There was discussion of CDA for anesthesia records of device data.
