3 Agenda Items
- As Noted
3. John Garguilo has been elected TC cochair.
4. New Work Item Proposals: John Rhoads offered to assist anyone who needs help developing a proposal.
5. October meetings:
- F2F: The Wiki page is available for additions, editing; timing will be addressed later. Ken noted that a PCD introductory session is scheduled for 8:30 – 10 for ECRI Institute staff and those in the general area who may be interested. A Webex may be added if appropriate. The regular meeting will start about 11. A tour is tentatively scheduled after lunch Tuesday. Erin requested an invitation to send to local biomeds and Ken will provide the document. Manny will look for the invitation used in Berkeley.
- HL7: The device portion will be in collaboration with IEEE. John Garguilo invited participants to submit agenda items to Todd. Todd noted that the HL7 effort is active, and the Veterans Administration is holding a conference at the same time and place; Todd will present material about the PCD. He added that mobile device communication in HL7 is also on the agenda.
6. Showcase: Ken noted that next Tuesday’s meeting will address the Showcase organization. One story that will be considered is an OB story with fetal monitoring to obtain cross domain integration. Capsule indicated they can interface many fetal monitors and so the search will be on to obtain the fetal monitor. Debbie Leyva added that they (Nuvon) may be able to provide this aspect, noting that Vaughan has indicated an interest in participating. Bikram noted that GE and Philips are among those Capsule interfaces. Ken added that newborn hearing screening may be added. Bikram added that an incubator or infant warmer can also be added.
7. Technical Framework: The revised TI versions are wending their way to publication. Ken and John will use these as the basis for the Final Text versions volumes 1 and 2.
8. IDCO: Tom Schultz indicated that no significant changes have been made, rather the focus has been on nomenclature balloting. IDCO’s plans will be discussed at the Cambridge HL7 meetings. Todd asked about incorporating Consistent Time. Tom indicated this is on the agenda for the Cambridge meeting.
9. ACM: The ballot brought a substantive comment from Paul Schluter. John indicated that he and Monroe will address this and will develop a CP to make the RefID in OBX-3 consistent with PCD-01.
10. WCM: (now Waveform Content Message): Ken indicated that the simpler comments have been addressed and the more complex comments will be addressed next Monday.
11. Event Communication: Jeff described the current status of this Supplement in development. It focuses on the needs of the Pump WG, recognizing that it has broader application, but will be more widely developed and used. Using a different transaction will permit receiving systems to differentiate this from status messages. Todd asked if a new Trigger will be required and Jeff responded that it will. Todd suggested this be added to the upcoming HL7 meeting agenda. Paul expressed a preference for embedding this in a PCD-01 message and can optionally include data, but does not object to a distinct trigger. Discussion continued about proposing a new trigger, using the ACM profile with alarm priority 0 (zero), and other ways to assure that this is general enough to support sufficient scope. Paul complimented the Pump WG for the well defined draft. He added that the profile should follow the template for core event information carried in the other profiles. Jeff noted that events have different workflow.



4 New Business
