Item Topic Discussion
1 Introductions & Agenda Review
- Chair


  • Agenda approved with the addition of Update on IHE International and summary of important issues from the Atlanta HL7 Meetings


2 Issues with Discussion Summary or Approval of Minutes
- Chair
  • Discussion Summary of previous PC and TC meetings


  • PC summary approved unchanged
  • TC summary approved with one change: consensus was developed on the choices for organizing the TF.


3 Announcements
- Todd
  • Chris Carr posted updates on patent disclosure process. At this point we can use it; it will go to the Board Thursday. We will review these Monday morning. The most significant item is simplification of the form.
  • The articles of incorporation have been completed and submitted to Illinois and to the IRS.



4 PCD F2F Next Week
- Todd
  • Manny reviewed Connectathon registration information. Todd requested that he learn the extent of IOP and IDCC participation.
  • Manny reviewed F2F registration.
  • John Zaleski described his Brief Profile Proposal in detail: the need for integration of data from multiple devices and sources with temporal correlation for those sources which can support this requirement, e.g., most point of care devices. The proposal suggests that data can be synchronized through coordinated reporting (query) so they can, to the extent possible, be simultaneous. Ideally, the data would appear in a single transaction, but that is not necessary to provide the benefits of this integration. It was noted that internal device/gateway delays as well as deliberate processing (e.g., time or parameter averaging) provides some limitations. Paul described time stamps help with data that cannot be aligned, but interpolation will be required. John indicated that a query is useful if the data is outside a time window that is deemed acceptable. John will update and add diagrams.
