2. HL7 Task Force

  • Task Force email list has been established; domain committee members can request to join
  • Email to group to check status of work on CP for ITI Tech on how to manage transition between versions of HL7

3. Cross-domain Strategic Planning

  • Workgroup created by IHE International Board to propose a process and documentation for cross-domain strategic planning
  • Workgroup's thesis is that there would be real value in having a general long-range plan that all domains can reference for guidance and provide input to, as well as long-range plan in each domain that its members and other domains can refer to.
  • Workgroup will develop a plan and bring it to the Board and Domain Coord Cmte for Review
  • Work output should be tactical plan to articulate objectives and processes for cross-domain evaluation and selection of profiles
  • Audience for document is domain planning committees
  • Planning Document Sections:
  • confirmation of principles of IHE, (eg, profiles must be based on established standards, eliminate arbitrarily divergent methods for accomplishing the same end, profiles are to encourage adoption, international in scope, vendor neutral)
  • vision of the gestalt of IHE and how the pieces fit together
  • tactical process for domain profile selection
  • themes and scope areas for each domain:
  • ITI has grouped its profiles into theme/topic areas; Mike Nusbaum will provide document
  • have other domains develop similar documents grouping their work output into themes
  • domain work plans
  • Approval role for Board in profile selection/publication? Board should at least approve the Strategic Plan and possibly advise domains on how their plans fit into it.
  • Domain Coord Committee feedback:
  • Concerns about how quickly priorities shift due to changes in environment; three year time horizon may not be feasible in all domains
  • Where has the lack of strategic planning caused problems?
  • Multi-year development projects and development requiring input from across domains; avoid adopting divergent approaches to a common use case across domains
  • Where there is a large body of proposed work items and strategic selections need to be made to narrow scope; need better criteria than "popularity vote"
  • Committee work plans largely driven by availability of volunteers to support work items
  • PCC example: Maternal and Child Health required sustained support from pediatric and obstetrics groups (ACOG); could not have determined this activity as a strategic priority without that support
