Decisions/Issues: Minutes of August 28 were approved.


3 Action Items Review
- Chair
  • 26: no change
  • 73: Todd received material from HIBCC. Todd was told that internationally, GS1 is preferred, while HIBCC is preferred in the US.
  • 74: Change Rick Schrenker contact to Ray.
  • 78: Paul will do what he can to act as a point of contact to foster communication between PCD and Continua.
HITSP, Continua and PCD were represented on a conference call this morning. There is no agreement on how to encode and send the messages. PCD-01 will be the placeholder construct that will be drafted and discussed at an RMON meeting Tuesday in Chicago. Continua may submit an alternative. Paul will attend. While it may change, having an entry will help to move this forward this year given the upcoming deadlines. Otherwise, it will be tabled for a year. Paul believes that Continua is proceeding assuming that having a coding standard will invite companies to build devices. They also believe that PCD-01 burdens the home hub, but Paul believes that the additional burden will be minimal. Paul also noted that the existence of CCD XHR interface muddied the water. That handles episodic, but not streamed, data. Having a new coding process (Continua’s) will add a burden to the receiving system compared to the use of HL7 ER which is commonly used. It does look like RTM will be acceptable to Continua.
Todd asked how to best develop coordination and communication with Continua. Paul suggested that the MOU between IHE and Continua may permit a limited, low cost membership permitting PCD representation at meetings. Another approach is to start with Rosetta. As for joint demonstrations, that may be more difficult since Continua has held several “plug fests” and has the resources to proceed independently, but this may be possible.
Todd and Paul will attempt to set up an evening discussion with some Continua members next week during the Vancouver HL7/IEEE meeting for RTM, perhaps RMON. Todd will send an email offering this suggestion to Continua. Ray will suggest Showcase cooperation to Charles.
Paul noted that Bridget was on the call and wants to see something come to market. He suggested that it would be helpful to have opinions from multiple enterprise-size healthcare providers.
  • 79: no change



  • 78: Todd and Paul will attempt to set up an evening discussion with some Continua members next week. Ray will suggest Showcase cooperation to Charles.
