  • Reviewed voting and scoring procedure
  • Proposal by Kevin O'Donnell to introduce proportional voting in order to make sure that groups specifically interested in subject areas with narrower interest have a fairer chance at representation.
  • For simplicity's, the simple Condorcet method of ranking proposals (a unique value 1-n for each of n options; highest value to first choice) was selected for use.
  • Reviewed roster. Eighteen representatives in attendance were judged to have met criteria for voting rights (member organization representatives; attended two consecutive meetings to attain voting rights; have not missed three consecutive meetings to lose voting rights).
  • Points tallied by each using the Condorcet voting method:
  • Remote Reporting for Imaging (TeleRadiology) - 60
  • Clinical Decision Support for Radiology (CDS-R) - 63
  • REM for Radiopharmaceutical Imaging - 40
  • Shared Study Management (SSM) - 39
  • Image Viewing and Upload over the Web (IVUW) - 47
  • Profile development work items for 2014-2015 are thus:
  • Remote Reporting for Imaging (TeleRadiology)
  • Clinical Decision Support for Radiology (CDS-R)
  • Image Viewing and Upload over the Web (IVUW)
  • Each work item has an assigned author, but authors are encouraged to recruit additional editors and reviewers from relevant domain experts and user groups
  • Add discussion on use cases (Vol. 1 material) with targeted user groups to agenda for Nov. 4-7 meeting
  • Next Planning Committee Meeting: Breakfast meeting at RSNA: IHE Radiology Planning/Technical Committee Breakfast, Tuesday, Dec. 2; 8:30-10:30 AM, McCormick Place Room E271A
