4 Profile and White Paper Updates
- Chair
  • Updates
Manny suggested that all profiles indicate that RTM is required with explanation of how to handle existing and future (not yet included) coding.
TF/DEC - No change.
ACM - Monroe indicated that the TI update will be discussed tomorrow. Ken noted that there may be waveform snippets accompanying alarm messages and this is also being addressed. It differs from regularly scheduled waveform communication.
DPI – Meets tomorrow. Goal is WP for distribution at the end of the month.
IDCO - IDCO release as TI is out for ballot. The WG is working on IEEE nomenclature.
MEM - The WP will be presented at next week’s TC and then will go to ballot for release as public comment.
PIV/Infusion Pump - Pump CPs were approved for release for ballot in the TC meeting earlier today. TI version 2 will follow the ballot.
RTM - CPs will be discussed in the WG then provided to the TC for release for ballot next week.
WCM - Meets today. There’s an issue of whether this is a separate profile or is integrated into DEC. If in DEC there’s a question of how to provide visibility to purchasers. This is similar to the RTM issue.

5 Announcements
- Chair
  • Connectathon and Showcase
  • F2F
  • User Handbook –
  • Australia
  • HIMSS Asia_Pac -
  • ICE-PAC: Ken provided an update on a recent meeting about the ICE standard. Participants were largely academics sponsored by DOD or __ . Presentations were made by FDA, U of PA, U of IL Urbana Champagne, Kansas State, LiveData, Dick Moberg, and others. Tracy Rausch presented the gap analysis that PCD has participated in. Moberg Research is using 11073 in some fashion. On the second day Ken and John provided information on IHE, RTM. It appeared that many working in this area were not aware of the IHE efforts.
  • MOU with ICE – PAC -
  • Continua
- PCD/Continua collaboration ballot went only to IHE members; if a member didn’t receive it please contact a cochair.
  • PCD Report to Board has been delivered.
  • PCD webinar in the IHE webinar series last week. Ken asked how well this was publicized and where. Other than mention during a committee meeting no one was aware of the series.
  • Validation and Verification: These terms have been used, but not necessarily correctly in the context of the FDA, Connectathon and IHE. The PCD and IHE do not provide either. Validation is a well defined legal term and doesn’t apply to PCD’s work. Ken indicated that certification is the goal. Ken will develop a description of the various pieces and PCD’s goals and approaches. Todd will modify the PCD presentation slides to be more accurate by referring to conformance. Christoff mentioned an HL7 section on conformance (HL7 v 2.6).
