3 Agenda Items
- yAs noted

3. Update on AAMI meeting:

- Interoperability was a major theme of the conference. Ken, John Rhoads and Axel spoke. There were many sessions, with Ken and John speaking in several, with Axel in one with Ken and John and another on cybersecurity. The audience was aware and interested, apparently with greater interest.
- John Rhoads noted that visitors to the booth were both users and vendors and had serious interest in PCD.
- Ken noted that FDA has an interest in interoperability and asked AAMI to develop standards on interoperability and Ken noted that this is not amenable to a quick solution and that many have spent years working on this. UL has also decided they will work on interoperability. The FDA may set up a meeting of stakeholders to set a path.
- Manny noted that the AAMI Board approved becoming the third sponsor of the PCD.

4. Existing Profile and TF Development:

- Event Communication: Khalid indicated that all the essential elements were included in the document. Khalid, Al, John and others were recognized for the accomplishment. Several EMR vendors participated and the expectation is that this will be tested and demonstrated in this cycle.
- TF: The Final Text version volumes 1 and 2 are completed. The publication staff will address formatting, etc. and release it. There is no further need for a TI version. Changes will be made via CPs. Annual revisions are anticipated after CPs are vetted in Connectathons – the CPs will be folded in. John G asked how many testing cycles are required before a CP is incorporated into the FT TF. John Rhoads indicated the TC will make judgment calls, noting that the PCD has favored two cycles, but that is not a requirement. John was congratulated for the accomplishment.

5. IHE Korea: Some changes were made to the NIST test system in advance of their upcoming Connectathon. They are using several OIDs and Korean demographics with Korean character set for the PID segment.

6. Test Case Review: Basic DEC has been addressed, more remains. PIV has reviewed. We will continue with DEC and review ACM starting tomorrow.

7. Misc.:

- User Handbook update completed.
- Open ballots: no information available.

9. No Committee meeting next week, deferring the PC a week and continuing the current cycle. PIV will meet today. No RTM or ADQ meetings this week.
