  • Is there enough interest in PaLM for either remote or physical participation at the meeting?

  • There will be a discussion on it at the HL7 O&O next week. Riki will send a message to the group on when the discussion will occur – it is scheduled for Monday 9 – 10:30 AM CT

Digital Pathology profile update – Raj

  • Query and Broadcast mode are both needed
  • Discussion on whether LAB-82 needs to convey OBX segments or not. The answer is YES, but we have to further specify the content of the RESULT segment group: Metadata of the images, QA data? We’ll poll the scanner vendors to specify this content.
