Agenda Review and Discussion:

  • CP ballot announcement
  • DPIA and SET testing plan updates
    • Alessandro created the IGAMT profiles for both DIPA and SET
      • DPIA is built on 2.5.1, but with some modifications for the pre-adoptions; HL7 v2.9.1 also helps with DPIA. It would be nice to consider it instead of v2.5.1
      • I think that it's in 2.9 that the IPC segment is included in the OML messages
      • SET is built on 2.9, but all message structures had to be created from scratch, as all are NEW
        • Since these message structures are not published yet, we will need to update to the version in which they are published
    • IGAMT new version made some edits easier and allows ability to unlock structures
    • IGAMT profiles have been shared with Anne-Gaelle for review and use in Gazelle testing tool
    • If you have a user ID for the IGAMT tool, Alessandro can share the profiles with anyone interested (email him your user ID for the IGAMT profile)
    • Gazelle Test case template –
      • Need to write the test cases for both SET and DPIA
      • New tab for each test case
      • Use this convention DIPA_1 and SET_1
      • For DPIA we can copy test cases from LAW and adjust for the domain
      • Will review on the December call
    • Has any vendor tried out the DPIA test cases?
      • Have seen some public tenders, where DPIA is listed as requirement
      • Philips were the initiator for DPIA use case, so assume they would be the ones that may have implemented
    • Gazelle can also simulate the other actor for transactions if we don’t have vendors
  • Digital Pathology Updates
    • Raj is working on CPs (Ruben is helping)
    • Looking for vendors interested in moving these profiles forward
    • DICOM connectathon had some new vendors, so potentially reach out to them
    • DICOM WG 26 will reach out before their December meeting
      • Maybe we can plan a joint connectathon with DICOM
      • Check if we can use the Gazelle tool for that – it will help with tracking the test outcomes
      • Alessandro can support
  • Project Updates
    • Digital Aid for Telemedicine has been published
    • Proficiency Testing profile
      • Have some draft document layout, but need more help there
      • Need some input from PT vendors to better understand the data elements needed to support this use case
  • X e-Health (not present)
  • Announcements for new proposals for the 2023 cycle
    • Riki will send out an announcement
  • DCC update
    • IHE is moving the documents to web publishing, we should consider this for new supplements
    • Named supplements need to be easier to find across the Technical Framework
