3 Agenda Items

3. Brief Workitem Proposals:

- Optimized Message Syntax – Ken described the proposals which addresses data communication through the slower RS232 connection. Paul suggested that PCD consider Continua’s approach which seeks minimal message size and offered several considerations. These will be considered if the work goes forward.
- Device Specialization, Physiologic Monitor – Todd indicated this will be based upon the concepts employed in the infusion pump specialization. John Garguilo suggested that the use cases employed in the device specialization efforts will also serve to identify gaps in the DIM. John Garguilo and Paul noted several benefits to standards development (e.g., containment table) resulting from these specialization efforts. John Garguilo will develop a graphical representation of the process.
- Device Specialization, Ventilator – Todd
- DPI White Paper – Todd noted that the DPI work has been approved, but not actively supported. The WP will lay the foundation for implementation of some DPI messaging in time for the 2014 Connectathon.
- DPI DnA Discovery and Association - Todd
- DPI DR Data Reporting - Todd
