6 Announcements
- All
  • NIST Testing: John Garguilo reviewed recent activity including the tutorial. The target is release of the generalized profiles and the tools on Monday. Individual companies are responsible for developing their own profiles for MWB testing, but may find the NIST profiles helpful. Gary has updated the PIV and DEC, and will update the ACM. The NIST tools should be ready next week. Both the NIST and MWB are valuable to the PCD, each with some valuable functions.
  • Connectathon and Showcase (Other): Todd will see Lisa, John Donnelly next week. Manny will set a meeting for the Showcase Task Force on Monday.
  • Todd summarized the TC 215 Health Informatics Standards Group (related standards and PCD effort) meeting in Durham, NC last week. Most of the work addressed the 80001 standard. It will go to ballot and hopefully finalized next Fall. The agenda also included work from Japan, Continua. Several guidance documents were on the agenda. A Technical Note will be drafted and released for public comment in about a week, and will include a proposed roadmap that will address some inconsistencies within the ONC roadmap. HITSP’s life beyond January 1 is uncertain. The Technical Note will hopefully find the roadmap useful.
