  • Announcements:
  • Administration
    • ECDP annual conference may be an alternative date for the F2F if Ghent does not work out
      • F2F is still scheduled for 5/2 – 5/4, 2022
      • Will send out another Save the Date
    • IHE Board report due to DCC in January 2022; Riki is working on it
    • IHE PaLM wiki page needs updating; Co-Chairs and Mary will work on it
  • Updates/Discussion
    • HL7 FHIR reporting for lab results to public health (PH) and between labs and providers
      • Germany (labs results reported to PH using FHIR); Belgium
      • HL7 work around cancer reporting in progress
    • Blood banking profiles
      • Ordering blood products profile suggested
    • IHE Japan Connection:
      • It was held at Asakusa, Tokyo on 25 thru 29 Octtober 2021. However, LAB was canceled in the same manner with last year because of COVID-19. Four domains RAD, ITI CARD and ENDO were carried out. 34 systems of 21 vendor were joined. In ITI domain, FHIR profile PDQm – Patient Demographics Query for Mobile was newly tried this year.
    • IHE Japan Promotion Activities:
      • Ms. Megumi Kondo and Mr. Naomi Ishii gave IHE Tutorial session titled ‘IHE Updates 2021’ at the 41st Japanese Medical Informatics Union Convention on 21 November 2021.
      • Ms. Megumi Kondo gave a presentation entitled “IHE-J Anatomic Pathology Committee activity report – Standardization trends in Anatomic Pathology domain” at the 19th annual meeting of the Japanese Society of Digital Pathology on August 21, 2021.
    • Steve Nichols – DICOM WG 20
  • New project proposal
    • Expand LTW for proficiency testing (PT) in the US (Raj)
      • Modification of LAB-1, LAB-2, LAB-3 to accommodate PT
      • May expand profile to Europe and/or Canada.
        • In Belgium the lab is not supposed to know that these are PT samples, so that the lab doesn’t change anything from what they would normally do
        • In Germany use microarrays for PT also
        • Dimitri is in Ontario, Canada – PT program is testing the clinical / operational side for any licensed test they do – treated as a patient sample, results are entered electronically and those can then be reviewed individual results as well as in cohort of results done with the same instrument – and if outlier will have to do review as to why
      • May have to set up different use cases for Digital Pathology
      • This could improve lab-lab PT testing, where commercial PT is not available and help with standardization activities currently; will also need to look at ILW
      • Motion to accept work for next cycle JD, Raj, further discussion: can this proposal be uploaded to google, so it can be shared with potential implementers, against: 0, abstain: 0, in favor: unanimous
  • X-ehealth update (Juergen/ Hynek)
