3 Agenda Items
- Cochairs, Others
  • ACM: Should PCD-04 be included in the final text TF? Steve described alarm communication as implying that the clinician will receive the alarm thus making PCD-04 alone not sufficient by itself. He noted that there were use cases where PCD-04 by itself will be of sufficient value to move to final text alone. He indicated that PCD-04 alone would be acceptable as long as it won’t change. Monroe noted that it will become a different message type with a new HL7 version. The concensus was that it isn’t necessary to move it to FT for vendors to implement it.
- John Rhoads described PCD-04 as having the ability to provide MDC codes for alarms as well as additional information for context. This is optional, and he asked how a vendor will be able to indicate that it supports these additional functions. Monroe indicated that the JC and HITSP have identified three levels of alarms – just alarm, indicate severity, and then what detail, such as numerical value, is communicated. John suggested that this may be the way to represent the vendor’s capabilities.
- Todd suggested we develop a path to final text for PCD-04 and PCD-06. John Rhoads suggested that we address the issues in the discussion and development of ACM testing.
  • PIB ITI-30 discussion: Manny suggested that ADT need not be an option in PCD TF, rather just a reference to the availability of PAM and PDQ. Todd suggested that it is not necessary to include ADT capability as an option, but that it should be discussed in the user guide. It was noted that we need to work to obtain ADT support at the Connectathon and Showcase.
  • WAN interface and Korean Connectathon: Todd will provide a Webex seminar this evening to help them prepare for the Connectathon. They have 5 to 7 vendors for this first time event. Todd is researching whether PCD-01 over a WAN interface requires a different transaction. This has implications for other PCD transactions, such as PCD-04.



  • Manny to send CP and WCM for public comment after Al and Ken review the comments received.
