Technical Agenda

  • Work on barcodes - progress and alignment (Esther?) (5m) + Discussion (15m)

New transaction is identified but seems not the initially discussed transaction (simple decode of barcode).

  • Stephane suggests also to add the convers "encoding" transaction
  • Christof Gessner suggests to look at the LAB LBL transaction for labeling.
  • Jose suggests that in the discussion, some of the material could enrich our white paper.


  • The date of 15th Feb is not the final date for any publication, but the date for presenting and discussing the agreed scope. So there is a bit more time, not a lot.
  • The date for document to be finished would be end of April 2016 to still make it for this year's publication.
  • The template used is still the old one (possibly Jose's mistake) - It is best to use only the new template.
  • Esther will join in a phone call/webex for further discussion
  • Work on Supply - presentation of Supply transactions to Pharma group, to start working on the profiles (15m)

Presentation can be found here: Supply Transactions Rev IHE

    • Discussion with ITI and PCC in F2F? Yes, agreed to do so.
  • Common Profile discussions - José
    • Current status of discussions
    • Current status of FHIR resources
    • Proposed approach: Start with simpler cases (administration) and work backwards.
      • Suggestion to discuss in Porto how to use FHIR in our profile(s).
      • Jose: There is an initiative in DCC Documentation workgroup how to use different versions of FHIR.
