Day 1 Minutes
- Introductions / Agenda review
- CPN Extensions - Charles Thomas
- Review of public comment feedback on CPN Extensions profile
Got comments from Siemens, Epic, Philips, ACC, and heartbase. ACC comments included on values in the Indications value set. Will address the corrections to the existing value set. Will not add new values but that work will be part of the separate focus on the specific clinical reports. Action: Bruce, Rebecca, Charles to review the issues raised and how to solve.
- Update on related cardiology standardization activities - Bruce Bray
- HSPC - Health Services Platform Consortium - is focused on implementation of standards.
- CIIC - Clinical Information Interoperability Council - is focused on implementation of standards. FDA, CMS are involved.
- HL7 Clinical Interoperability Council (CIC) - includes a project on registry data elements.
These are focused on US realm initially. But there is interest in expanding to international. There will be a meeting of HSPC and CIIC at the end of July. ACC Informatics task force is discussing how to link to these efforts.
- DICOM WG1 - Antje and Bruce are leading this. Exploring what to focus on - finding ourselves. How do echo templates support guidelines coming out or recently have come out. One topic is support for echo reporting. This is not covered by CPN curently.
Have interacted with European Society of Cardiology - for eCardiology to standardize reporting and workflows. Suggested to raise this with the Planning Committee.
- CPN Companion Guide - current status - Rebeccs
- Rebecca reviewed the current status of the documents. Discussion about what should be in the technical document. There is need for a document/template for use in the RFI process.
- Nick suggested only publishing the executive and clinical documents. These would be used to help in the RFI process. Not for vendors to implement the profile.
- Andrea suggests putting links into the clinical document to the CPN profile. Example of how to model a lesion. Driven by the content of the clinical document. When review the clinical document, find out where information is needed. When all the clinical document is reviewed, the supportive material is complete.
