Didi's Comments on PCD Governance Document

Didi’s thoughts on the PCD Governance Draft (latest version is at http://wiki.ihe.net/index.php?title=PCD_Governance
Didi expressed concerns about using terminology which may be confusing or raise unnecessary questions: She would rather avoid the word “Governance”. ITI calls it a “Process” document. Must comply with general IHE Governance (membership issues). Prefer “PCD Cochair Committee” rather than “Steering Committee”. “Domain Committees” for PC, TC. Working group names are ok.
Concern about non-IHE members participating in PC, TC.
Majority vote to carry a vote is fine.
Tie breaking – rerun or extend the voting window.
We can have proxies, but IHE International doesn’t.

Didi's Comments on Showcase Management

Didi is comfortable with PCD in a maximum number of tours, and I’ll communicate this to Mike Nusbaum and John Donnelly along with other information.
Didi noted that we can tell vendors that we limit their exposure – the Showcase agreement does not guarantee a certain level of exposure, and that we can take into account the number of systems elsewhere in the PCD area, as well as the number of systems elsewhere in the Showcase (e.g., GE has multiple systems elsewhere in the Showcase as well as several in PCD).
We all agree that we need to rethink how the PCD demonstrates systems after the Showcase, given the large number of vendors and systems/actors.
