3. TF and Supplement Status:

- Nothing to report.

4. Brief Proposals:

- Proposals are due October 5, with ballot closing the Wednesday of the F2F.
- One proposal to date: Analyze the current profiles and consider if legacy devices can be brought on the network over a serial connection.
- The Wiki page http://wiki.ihe.net/index.php?title=PCD_Proposals_Cycle_8 was reviewed and members were encouraged to review proposals that were set aside in past cycles and consider if any are of interest going forward.
o John Garguilo noted that work has begun on device specialization.

5. Joint IEEE/HL7 Meeting:

- ________________
- Tracy Rausch has a grant to address PnP. She recommended approaches for X73, including QoS issues used for military applications that are also appropriate for medical devices.
- PCD will reinstitute 3 pm ET Monday meetings to coordinate with Tracy’s work.
- Paul noted that the IBM lighter weight EDS transport standard has been released for public use and will support its use. It may have more appeal to cell phone vendors that don’t want to support web services.
- The annotated ECG nomenclature 10103 passed, extending the number of lead identifiers, etc. It has been used by the FDA and adopted by DICOM. John Garguilo congratulated Paul on IEEE’s adoption.
- Ken spoke with the 802.2, 802.6 regarding the upper level security problems and coordinating among users who are using the same spectrum and potentially interfering with each other. Ken and Jan will provide a tutorial on 11073 at their San Antonio meeting in October.
- John Garguilo noted that the meeting notes are posted on the HL7 web pages.
- HIMSS13 Showcase – Future Directions: Focused on device PnP, the “last mile”. Todd summarized a proposal near completion. This would be tied into the main showcase and may include an alarm communicator component. Some informal testing would take place at the Connectathon. If might include other areas, such as pharmacy. The proposal will go out to PCD members in an attempt to learn the level of interest.

6. October F2F:

- John Garguilo referred to the Wiki page and noted that the special hotel rate expires next week.
- John referred to the list of potential topics and requested additions/suggestions from the membership.
- The NIST Test Tool Tutorial may be included, and will be recorded and available through Webex.
- Manny to poll for RSVP

7. Pre-Connectathon and Connectathon:

- Progress is on track.
- Manny described the need for indications of the type of system and data desired to demonstrate at HIMSS13 because the Connectathon registration will be used to assign systems to the use cases.

8. Action Item Review:

Continue with 122.

8. Next and Recent Meetings:

- HL7 2.8, changes to OBR, OBX
