Grants Advantage responded to the discussion, saying there may be federal funds in AHRQ’s Comparative Effectiveness Research Program and that $3-5K would be required to write the proposal. If Didi doesn’t have funds, perhaps ACCE would support this. Ray will make the request.

Decisions/Issues: Action(s):

3 Action Items Review
- Chair
  • 55: Showcase Vendor Display Policy - No change.
  • 57: PCD governance document - Passed overwhelmingly.
  • 61: Stakeholder survey - No change.
  • 70: IEEE MOU - No change.
  • 74: Clinician recruitment - No change.
  • 77: HITSP RMON - Bridget made a presentation last Friday. As a consultant for Continua she didn’t get deeply into the substance. Rick gave her a lot of fee rein. She appears to place emphasis on deliverable products. There’s an internal effort by the Wide Area Network Group to determine the technical requirements.
  • 78: Continua - Revise format, close.
  • 82: CIMIT - Ray will follow up with Julian. There’s an ICE meeting next week. There’s a question regarding where in the continuum PCD should have an MOU (ICE, MDPnP, CIMIT).
  • 83: Funding Possibilities - Ray received a response from the ACCE Foundation indicating they would be interested in supporting the grant writing, but Ray is hoping that ACCE would itself fund the grant writing. Ray will approach several board members to ask that this be on the board agenda. Ken sent Jon White at AHRQ an email to learn of his interest; this is in follow up to a suggestion from Edna Boone at HIMSS. Todd suggested we consider a prototype project for the application of PCD profiles. Todd and Elliot will be in DC at a HITSP TC and that may present opportunities to talk with people and scope out opportunities. Change date to 2/10.
  • 84: AAMI meeting - HIMSS will have a HIMSS booth, not an IHE booth this year; no effort required from PCD. Speakers have been confirmed.
  • 85: F2F May 4-8 - NIST location for F2F. Manny to check with John Garguilo re registration requirements for meeting.



4 Announcements
- All
  • Didi has resigned. The implications are unknown, but her resignation may affect the HIMSS allocation to PCD. The budget process this year will be complicated by the shorter time frame between the Showcase and adoption of the HIMSS budget. Ray will ask Joyce for advice on how to proceed.
  • HIMSS09 web page update has made two PCD related links quite visible. These are out of date. Cochairs will review and see if there are other links that might be substituted or if those pages need to be updated. Add to next meeting’s agenda.
  • ACC update – Todd asked if new information was available. No one knew anything, but they want to move on ICDO in this next cycle.
  • Coordinate at IHE cochair level for RFID and bar coding. ITI and Lab are interested. IHE Cochairs suggested distributing a proposal to learn who is interested in participating.



5 Connectathon and Showcase
- Manny
  • Showcase participants prefer one tour of all walls. That places tighter restrictions on time for each "showing" (each system or device) and how it supports IHE and the clinical story. Three volunteers have come forward to develop the high level scenario, and participants have been reminded to provide essential information about the role of their systems. We still have time, although it may not flow quickly enough for a dry run in advance of the Connectathon and a meaningful rehearsal at the Connectathon.
  • Capsule may bring BIS monitor.
  • New Directions wall: Todd suggested that these presentations be tied together with a PCD story that shows where this is headed and how PCD is moving interoperability forward.
