Review of Meeting Notes: Corrections should be made to the Wiki; significant issues placed on agenda of the next meeting

Item Topic Discussion
1 Introductions & Agenda Review
- Manny
  • No changes



2 Action Items
- Manny

Those discussed:

  • ADT for PCD:
- John Donnelly will address this as part of the Showcase focused portion of next week's meeting.
- Manny will check with Bill Klaver, John Donnelly, and Steve Moore to assure that an A04 will be available this year
  • - A change proposal is indicated and is separately identified as an action item below.
  • Manny will submit details of the PCD Scenarios to John Donnelly. For those not available, at least minimal scripts were requested by Friday.
  • Ruth will provide a Postscript printer to be placed on the kiosk. Manny will ask Colin FX if he can use the same printer, removing the need for the Zebra printers on the clinical walls.
  • Developers were asked to review and complete the data in a spreadsheet that identifies the actors and potential partners for the Connectathon.
  • Any missing data for electrical and network availability is welcome for confirmation of the requests that have been submitted.
  • Preliminary concepts for the New Directions wall include RTM graphics and three profiles (MEM, DPI, ACM AC actor).
  • We will schedule a separate meeting to exercise the scripts.
  • Volunteer docents were invited to assure that PCD can conduct all possible tours in order to provide PCD members with maximum visibility.
  • Manny will ask Steve for a deadline for MAC addresses.
  • Several members (Al, Brett, Cerner (ACM) and Monroe) are ready to begin Virtual Connectathon activities. Developers are confident that they will complete Pre-Connectathon testing next week and most will be able to conduct Virtual Connectathon testing. Those who won't be inhibited by a firewall are confident they will be complete the Virtual Connectathon by February 6. Participants are asked to test with two partners and send emails describing their success to the project manager. Results are not posted in Kudu.
  • Cerner proposed to provide bed alarm data in the Step Down area. Manny will learn if this can be added.

Due dates can be found on the Jan. 21 meeting page.

Those closed were:

  • Business card for Showcase w/ all companies listed + Booth numbers - the Showcase handout may address this.



  • As above.
3 Issues and Questions
- Manny
  • Robert noted that the MWB may take 3 to 5 seconds to validate messages. His system will resend the data if an acknowledgement is not received in less time. Brett indicated that the size of Robert's messages is consistent with taking that length of time for MWB validation.
  • Al described the issues surrounding the ADT messages for PIB – the spec calls out ITI-30. One set uses A28, A31, the other has other. None include A04. Last year PCD systems could handle A04 and the Showcase had this available. PIB could be edited to include ITI-31. Someone compliant with PIB may not be able to handle the A04. Cerner doesn’t support A04, but isn’t testing PIB or ADT this year. Manny will check with Bill Klaver, John Donnelly, and Steve Moore to be sure A04 will work this year. A CP is indicated.

-ACM - Meeting tomorrow to review, identify and address any issues.
