Item Topic Discussion
1 Agenda & Discussion Notes Review

2 PCD-03 error codes in Technical Framework and wiki page
- chair
Technical Framework. has errors 25-33, those are missing from wiki


Remove list from Wiki, add a link to the Technical Framework on the wiki page.


Kurt to remove error code list from wiki and add a link to the Technical Framework.
3 Common generic drug identifier
- tbd
Erica talked to FDB product manager most identifiers they use are proprietary. Many are combinations of name, concentration, etc.


EMR vendors and pump vendors use different identifiers.
Underlying identifier to identify the drug in the drug library is different from the drug name shown to users.
May be multiple names and identifiers. Key thing may be the substance identifier.
Need to come up with a common agreement on how to identify the drugs, - terminology set. Where is the master list. EMR or platform?
Should use an identifier not the name, some drugs have the same name but different clinical indications.


4 Workflow steps for scenarios
- Ray
Workflow steps from Ray's email
- Customer is switching to a new to pump vendor, existing EMR
List of all drugs for IV, concentrations
Pharmacist either automatically/manually creates matching pump library
Pharmacist enters limits, other pump specific items
- Existing pumps, new EMR
Pharmacist lists all pump drug library drugs
Use this list to create EMR IV Drug list
Still create EMR drug formulary as usual?
- Customer is switching to a new to pump vendor, new EMR
Similar to two scenarios above, need to determine which is master list.
- Existing customer upgrading pumps
Pharmacist transfers existing pump drug library to new pump format (carries over limits)
Extracts pump and hospital formulary - line by line compare
If common drug name/ID this step is much easier
- Ongoing drug library maintenance
Updating drugs
Distill EMR formulary
Distill Drug library
Do a diff
Automated message is sent when either DL is updated.
Still need to create pump limits manually
Automate otherwise?
- Study drugs being added to formulary/library
- Banana bags


Pain point is the mapping process, very labor intensive. Comparing drug library entries and formulary line by line.


Continue discussion at next meeting
think about what parts of the mapping process we can automate to reduce the time it takes to synchronize libraries.
