3. Existing Profiles and TF Development:

- Volume 1: Ken described the correspondence with Steve Moore who objects to RTM being a profile. PCD has considered RTM a Content Profile that underlies all other PCD profiles. Discussions he has had with Steve Moore will lead to RTM not called a profile and references to it will be in the Appendix of Volume 1, making it clear that RTM is required in all profiles. The revised draft will be balloted. Ken noted that there are other comments that would have been included in the next FT version and will now be included in the new revision for ballot. John Garguilo suggested that this be called a Value Set and explained why this approach, with co-constraints is a reasonable approach. This is a local domain item where the Value Set applies to the OBX. Paul expressed concern that this approach may limit the ability to implement machine readable schema that is verifiable. John Garguilo agreed and that further discussion is required to permit future developments. Ken suggested that we can call this something else, and Paul suggested Value Set with Co-Constraints as a temporary descriptor. He suggested another approach would be to define another actor; John Garguilo and John Rhoads objected to that approach. John Rhoads suggested that after moving the FT forward PCD should take this to IHE for approval of this new type of document and requested that the RTM committee develop the required description. Khalil asked if NIST tooling should be mentioned in the TF and John Garguilo responded that tooling is used, but specific tools are not identified in the text. RTM discussion in Volume 1 will be moved to the Appendix, reference to RTM will no longer be called a profile. John Garguilo suggested it be called Value Set with Relationships. Ken noted that “Value Set” implies constraints.
- Volume 2: John Rhoads referred to his email and discussed the suggested wording with one change from shall to should. He invited suggestions for other changes since the TF will be balloted again. Paul noted that there are three ways to send episodic data as well as Continua’s data. He asked if this could be reduced in number.

6. F2F: John Garguilo reminded the group that there is a Wiki page to add suggestions for agenda topics.



RTM committee will develop the required description; John Rhoads and Paul Schluter will develop a draft.
