F2F Agenda
PCIM - Settle on a technical direction (1/2 day)
LVP Device Specialization (1/2 day)
Syringe Pump Device Specialization (1/2 day)
PCA Device Specialization (1 day)
Device Specialization Use Cases
There was a general discussion about how best to capture the device specific use cases that should be included in the Vol 1 sections of these documents. One approach is to look at the scenarios that were used to drive the EC profile for infusion pumps. Those operational scenarios are LVP focused, but if for Syringe and PCA we looked at the scenarios that would drive EC for those devices, we might just come up with a sample set of examples that could be included in the Vol 1 sections for those devices and then tied directly to the EC option and semantics.
PCA Discussion
PCA pump use cases that were identified included:
  • Patient Requested Boluses
  • Nurse Administered Boluses
Note: there may be a use in identifying some fundamental differences between device types, such as LVPs may be considered life sustaining; however, in general PCAs are not. (Thank you, Erin!)
General DS Document Scope / Content
In addition to the basic semantic content (terms & model) for each of these device specializations, the profiles will capture:
  • alarms with evidentiary data
  • events with data that supports understanding of the clinical context in which they occurred.
PCIM Discussion
Advancing PCIM and selecting at least a technical direction surfaced as a key objective of the March Summit. John Rhoads signed up (ha!) to drive that discussion based on work that the PCIM group has done. We will try to adjust the schedule so as to provide WebEx access to other PCIM group members (e.g., Robert) during that discussion.


  • Discussion notes from both sessions were approved.


3 Press Release
- Sparnon

Erin reviewed the status of the proposed Press Release indicating that infusion pump vendors had commercially available systems with IHE profile support that were ready for integration with enterprise systems such as EHRs. In general, vendor participants indicated that there should be no major issue having their names included in such a press release; however, they would have to have it reviewed by their public relations departments.

Erin indicated that she had been told to hold off on release of the Release until after the AAMI mini-Showcase had been announced. This may be by the end of March.

Erin will get draft version(s) of the Press Release to vendors for review ASAP.


4 March Summit Review
- Todd

The group reviewed the new March Infusion Pump Summit page. See changes to that page.



  • Todd to send out a request for summit RSVPs ASAP.
