3 Agenda Items
- As Noted

3. Announcements:

- Elections:
Formally closed and announced.
- Survey for POI:
The survey so far indicates that vendors implementing pulse ox data without the POI option do not plan to implement the option this cycle.
- HIMSS Showcase Planning:
Manny indicated that survey planning is underway and the data in the Doodle survey is important to assure that the PCD portion is appropriately developed. He noted that GuardRFID will be in the Intelligent Hospital Pavilion and, if New Directions is available, in the Showcase. They offered to implement RFID with a moving “patient” on the Showcase floor.

4. Status of TF, Other Documents:

- MSH-5: Monroe proposed that this become required (R); it is currently RE. This presents issues in the ACK where the missing identification of the receiving system may be missing in the sending and therefore in the receiving systems. Ioana added that the receiving system should include its identification when responding in the ACK. Ioana recommended that the requirement should become IHE-wide. Ken suggested that it isn’t necessary to change, that it depends upon the use case. John Garguilo pointed out the MSH-3 in the TF is RE (PCD-09) and should be R. John Garguilo and Monroe offered to develop the CP and consult with ITI regarding wider applicability.
- OMS: Will meet today.
- TF: John Rhoads will distribute the revised version for comment.
- Usage: Paul Schluter described the need for a pointer at the facet level by Continua. This has not been an issue/need for PCD in general, but is desired by Continua. Using OBX-4 would not apply across the entire message, but rather unique only within the OBX.

5. Action Items:

- Manny and John Rhoads requested updates via emails because there are so many in this active committee.
