41 Monitor FDA actions on Universal Device ID Jeff Secunda October 1, 2008 Open FDA announced that nothing will happen before the election.
44 Define relationship between IEEE standards and IHE profiles; the role of the PCD in determining this relationship. Todd Cooper October 1, 2008 Open Elliot arranged for Didi to forward the current HL7 draft to IEEE for review as a template. That one is complete and signatures added.

71 Recruit clinicians; develop novel ways, attend to their priorities and schedules Ken, Manny None Open A few replies were recieved from Ken's email indicating nurses would not be able to participate in PC. Todd indicated that RTM ventilator WG has successfully recruited physicians. Profile development may be a reasonable initial focus for involvement and perhaps lead to further involvement in PCD.

4 Announcements
- Jeff Secunda
  • The FDA is making an effort to publicize their regulation of MDDSs.
  • The ISO 215/CEN 251 Istanbul Risk Management meetings will address software and attempt to address regulatory differences among countries.



5 AHIC Public Comment Period for Common Device Connectivity
- Todd
  • Public comment period open until September 16.
  • Comments will be discussed in October.
  • Considers both push and pull to/from EHR.
  • Steve Dain noted that there is a need to edit erroneous data, e.g. artifact from sensors, as the data directly becomes part of the medical record.
  • A meeting to develop the PCD comments will take place later this week. A survey will establish the time.



  • Manny will set up the meeting.
6 Profiles for the Next Cycle
- Profile Champions
  • ACM - Possible focus could be -
AM actors for smart alarming and evidentiary data; these are out of scope this year.
AM will eventually be powerful, but is limited this year.
Additional effor on Alarm Query/Archiver in this year's TI - nobody has volunteered to implement.
Ken noted that the archival function is broader than ACM and volunteered to review previous suggestions offered by Jack Harrington and develop a brief profile [note: http://wiki.ihe.net/index.php?title=PCD_Brief_Profile_Proposal_2008_WCM was posted later]
  • PIV - Jeff Rinda suggested that syringe pumps and PCD pumps are good possibilities for extensions.
  • Device Point-of-Care Integration - Todd led one meeting, a second is scheduled for Friday. Discussion will continue in Vancouver and then via Webex the following week.
  • RTM - Detailed discussion will continue in a meeting following this meeting.



  • Ken to provide a proposal for archiving functionality, Jeff for extensions to PIV
- Paul
  • Paul attended a HITSP meeting in Chicago last week. There seems to be agreement with HITSP and Continua to use RTM for coding parameters and units of measure.
  • Some participants prefer PCD-01 with its ability to handle more complex devices.
  • The issue will be included in the next public review cycle.
