  • Housekeeping: Updates & checks on wiki, roster – Carolyn and Mary
    • PaLM roster is now available on the wiki at: <a href=""></a>
    • Teleconference recordings are now available via meeting minutes on the wiki
    • net domain page still lists AP and Lab which contain links to the obsolete google groups;
      • Mary and Carolyn to work on getting this resolved (deprecate AP and LAB) and replace with our new PaLM domain with correct information and links
      • Add this as a topic for Secretary and DCC meeting agendas for escalation
      • Sabrina to follow up with Mary Jungers and Chris Carr
    • Discussion on Structured Reporting / data capture / cross domain white paper – Raj Click here for MergedProposal_PALM_RFJ.docx
      • Where would we keep a data element repository?
        • IHE ?
        • csDSR ?
        • Create something new with global support?
        • Need a way to index the concepts we are going to capture as part of this profile.
      • What do we need to add to the German proposal to make it work for IHE ? What would we need to do in order to add a clinical path ?
      • Standards – can we develop a license with IHTSDO to be able to use SNOMED CT in all of the IHE profiles where it is currently used ? Chris Carr working on this currently.
      • Idea of a global registry ?
      • Raj to continue to develop ideas and white paper with JD and Francois
        • Google doc
        • Combine use case 6 with either use case 1 or 3
        • Focus on 3 use cases to move forward
          • JD recommends use cases 1, 2, and 3 while leveraging the German work and remove SMART for now.
          • Raj will post back to google docs
        • Francois mentioned that the white paper will bring the arguments and options that Raj had mentioned.
      • Estimated time allotment for F2F in Berlin : If we can complete three use cases and also have time to talk about the central registry, then :
        • 1 hour for use cases
        • 1 hour for data registry
      • We will use a core editing team for the doc shared in googleDoc
        • Others to review and comment
        • Mary will collate all edits
      • Discussion of Specimen Event Tracking (SET) – Alessandro Click here for SET Work in Progress Document
        • Four SET use cases emerging so far
          • Use case 1: specimen tracking around blood specimen collection
          • Use case 2: inter-organization specimen event tracking
          • Use case 3: intra-organization specimen event tracking – work area of lab
            • Potential overlap with LDA, LSH, LAW on specimen handoff
          • Use case 4: biobanking – will focus only on specimen event (not biobanking per se.)
            • Specimen archival not included-just high level of tracking
            • Additional profile needed for biobanking
          • Next Steps:
            • Complete LDA/LAW/LSH analysis
            • Collect documents for Biobank analysis
            • Remaining PaLM profiles/use cases analysis
            • First version of a SET proposal to be shared via Google group
              • Alessandro to share draft week of May 6th
            • Allocate 1.5 hours for SET discussion at Berlin F2F
          • Face to Face Meeting in Berlin, May 23 – 25, 2016 - Francois
