4 Agenda Items
- All
  • 3. F2F: Ken updated the agenda on the Wiki page, allocating time for the orientation on Monday and a tour of ECRI Institute on Tuesday. ACTION: Need to publicize the orientation and invitation to attend Monday morning for general orientation
  • 4. Profile Updates:
- WCM: Ken described the status, noting that a number of terms need to be defined before release, and Jan will be asked to help provide these.
- MEM: Steve provided an update: location services and security of medical devices are on track for submission as new Workitems.
- ACM: John Rhoads described work to correct the way IEC characteristics are coded into the ACM. The last dot level in OBR-4 should be used to distinguish different OBXs, but PCD-04 uses it differently. This will be rewritten to help the reader understand how facets are used in ACM. The change will be significant enough to require a CP ballot.
  • 5. No comments.
  • 6. The TI versions of the TF have been given to Mary Jungers and will be published. Ken and John will turn to developing the FT versions.
  • 7. 2011 NA Connectathon and HIMSS Showcase:
Manny summarized Connectathon status, noting
- Alert has joined the PCD with an EMR, likely as the result of John Donnelly’s recruiting.
- WCM is likely to be a New Directions message and not fully tested. The option is now available for registration as an option for ACM, DEC.
- ACM will test WCTP if we receive sufficient registrations for the AC actor.
- John Rhoads noted that test case reviews are underway and members should review them.
- Opportunities have increased:
o Integration with other domains: PCD could be represented within another domain’s pod if only one or two systems are required (e.g., fetal monitoring outside the hospital).
o Additional stories on separate structure if needed due to additional members, transactions.
- Need to assure face time given the additional companies, transactions.
  • 9. Ken will ask about status.
  • 16. No significant changes. Steve will notify ITI of the RTLS effort and invite any interested ITI members to participate.



  • 3: Need to publicize the orientation and invitation to attend Monday morning for non-member introduction to PCD.
  • 7: Manny to ask John Donnelly what the duration of tours will be this year.
  • 16: Steve will notify ITI of the RTLS effort and invite any interested ITI members to participate.
