Domain Coordination Issues

Documentation, Websites and Public Information

  • Technical Framework section numbering (Karen Witting)
  • Some domains use static section numbering so that section numbers, at least the two or three top levels, don't change. i.e. a profile is always section x and a transaction is always section y. Some domains (ex. PCC) are not maintaining static section numbering so this has caused ITI has to update their section references each year as sections are moved. Should domains use consistent section numbering to support consistent cross-referencing.

  • Change Supplement Template title page to say "DRAFT in preparation for Public Comment". (2009-11-10)
  • Rationale: those outside IHE often find or are sent these documents prior to public comment and assume they are the public comment version. This leads to confusion. Sponsor would change title page when the supplement is released officially for public comment.

Governance Implementation
