Agenda Reviewed (Francois)

Announcement: LAW has been sent for publishing-sent to Mary Junger first week of March-in her hands now-supplement version 1.4 - yeah!

  • Eric Poiseau has found it on the server and is starting work on it
  • Ed has initiated a conversation with Eric to schedule a virtual connectathon for LAW for summer 2015 (June/July before the AACC meeting end of July)
  • Working with CLSI-submitted the candidate to help them develop the CLSI document based on LAW; should start work in April time frame and F2F in September to produce the CLSI standard-will add additional topics like how to transition from ASTM to HL7 implementation, etc. The CLSI standard should be released in 2016.
  • North America Conntectathon January 2016 – IICC members to participate – will send out a participation request with the publication email

Update on Lab Device Automation (LDA) progress:

  • Created the wiki content – should be built out by April call:
    • Described concepts
    • Proposed scope
    • Proposed actors
    • Draft use cases
  • Non-analytic devices-cross cutting between Lab and AP
  • For F2F: discuss the wiki content and confirm direction and identify the actual use cases around the workflow and solicit participation to move forward
  • Invite the AP folks to our next conference call in April via the AP google group list (Carolyn and Mary to do)

Laboratory Clinical Communication (LCC) Update:

  • Working on HL7 Change Proposals – one for order replacement one for additional work on existing results – starting the template work – Riki to provide the underlying chapters and hope to have that completed in time for next meeting
  • How much time needed at F2F – depends on outcome of HL7 discussions – probably just status update
  • More on wiki page

Lab-AP merger announcement and changed dates for the IHE F2F in Paris hosted by ASIP Sante – now May 19 at 9 AM to May 22 noon

Lab TF-CPs update and balloting for 6.0 release – have 6 currently – Riki just added one more for better alignment with the base standard:

  • Agree to add the segment groups back into the OML^O21, which does not change anything to the current specification of LAB-1 but enhances the clarity and shows the alignment with the standard.
  • Will skip optional segments in message definition (like SFT), per convention expressed at the top of Volume 2a.
  • OBR-7 is C in the base – fix usage to RE for LAB-1 is copy of SPM-17.1
  • Make OBR-28 RE
  • Send feedback to this CP and then send the ballot out
  • Riki to send out to google groups, please provide feedback by COB 3/13 to
  • The ballot of CPs will await completion of this additional CP to include it. We’’ll fire the ballot before next call.

Review of IHE Lab Domain report: Made changes to the document – will send as is to DCC.
