3 Discussion & F2F Planning
- Chair
  • The group should schedule 3-4 WebEx sessions for the next two weeks (leading up to the Boston F2F).


  • The Friday 2008.10.24 F2F meeting should be held at CIMIT.


  • (Todd) Publish Doodle poll for 3-4 WebEx sessions over the next two weeks.

4 DPI White Paper Outline
- Todd

The group discussed the general purpose & content of the proposed DPI White paper. The following content was suggested:

  • Use Cases - a substantive section describing representative scnearios and providing an analysis that indicates what components fall within the DPI scope and which are addressed by other profiles and constructs.
  • 11073-00000 Framework & Overview document: This DPI should be organized to directly inform the revised top-level 11073 Framework & Overview document.
  • "ICE" Use Cases & conceptual architecture & requirements: The DPI should also directly address the use cases, requirements and architetures identified in the ASTM F29 "ICE" standard. The PCD DPI profiles should include support for ICE-compliant systems.
  • DPI WP Front Matter...
- Scope: Differentiate DPI vs. DEC
- Audience: IHE TF developers
- IHE PCD TF: Should describe the relationship of DPI to the other PCD & IHE TF's
- Regulatory Considerations: Should point out that though DPI profiles support development of devices & systems that may fall under national regulatory oversight.
  • Use Cases: There should be a section that presents the use cases that define the DPI scope & the logical relationship between them
  • Topological Model (leading from the use cases)
  • PnP: The WP should describe the notion of PoC plug-and-play (e.g., across all 7 OSI Layers)
  • Technological Archittecture...
- Transports / Service model / Abstract Device Sematic & Service model
- Peer-to-peer communication
- Network Manager / Agent
  • DPI Profile Framework (anticipated development items)
  • Anticipated IHE documents...
- White Papers
- Users Handbook
  • Service Components
- Device Reporting
- Device configuration (simple control)
- "Symmetric" communciation (device as client)
- External Control...
Basic PnP control
Safety Interlocks
"Simple" non-therapeutic Control
Therapeutic controls
Closed-loop control (incl. QoS requirements / "contract")
  •  ?ICE Supervisor function?
  •  ?Flight Recorder / Back Box (a la "real-time storage & retrieval")
  • Relationship to ISO/IEEE 11073 Framework & Overview


  • The DPI WP should be drafted so as to directly inform the revision of the ISO/IEEE 11073-00000 Framework & Overview standard.
  • The PCD DPI profiles should include support for ICE-compliant systems.


  • (Todd) Publish DPI White Paper outline & process by 2008.10.05
  • (Todd) Coordinate with Dr. Julian Goldman re. the Boston F2F schedule & agenda, and regarding IHE PCD sync with ICE & MDPnP work.
