The update will include PIB, SPD. Todd will ask the IHE Cochairs if the format must be changed to the new format or can be left as is. A format change to the TF is anticipated. This would place the boiler plate into volume 0. Manny to develop the essential elements of the Integration Statements and check to see if the requirement for PCD-01 from the DOR to the DOF is clearly written. Robert is leading a group addressing the issues with PAM ITI-30 and 31. Paul noted that web services will provide additional benefits such as security. The profile updates to HL7 v 2.6 will be folded in. Dec. 9, 2009: Change date to Dec. 18. John Garguilo noted Bikram’s observation about OBR field lengths. He recommended discussion and decision, perhaps using RE for those not used. Paul noted that there will be CPs coming out of coordination with Continua. Feb. 24, 2010: Updating TF is in progress, addressing non-controversial items. A draft of Volume 2 will be available shortly. Volume 3, delayed, will contain much of what was in Volume 2. CPs for Continua harmonization will be incorporated before the revised TF is issued for ballot. June 30, 2010: Change date to Sept. 15. September 22, 2010: Todd is working on TF Volume 3 which will include what was Volume 2 Appendix D. Manny to ask Todd for a potential date. April 6, 2010: Change due date to April 27 and note open ballot. John Rhoads noted that one more CP regarding OBX-18 may come in response to the ballot. Then a new TI version will be developed with items not yet ready for FT. May 2011 F2F, reviewed by TC June 1: FT will be balloted by June 15 and Ken, John will edit Volumes 1 and 2 for next iteration in the future. August 17, 2011: Volumes 1 and 2 have been published in Final Text. Todd is working on volume 3. Todd is also working on a CP to clarify the security wording. ''' Close, open new with cycle.

Gary volunteered to develop and maintain MWB profiles for three profiles, including tables (data type and others); initial versions are available and can be enhanced for future (cycles) use. Gary is maintaining MWB profiles and NIST bases/develops their message context validation files based on the MWB HL7 profiles.  Volunteers are requested to help on the other profiles (ACM PCD-04 through 08). For ACM, Monroe indicated that only PCD-04 is currently stable. Gary will work on PCD-04 as well. Manny will talk with Nick regarding IDCO (for PCD-09). Gary noted that the MWB tool permits building the message, while that is not available in the NIST tools. John Garguilo noted that the MWB also provides the capability to execute (or simulate) a sending/receiving system for testing. NIST is working on building Test Agents to achieve similar functionality and John will provide updates as the Agents are written in software. September 22, 2010: John Garguilo will ask members to take responsibility for maintaining the profiles and keep the latest version on the ftp site. Companies will be able to constrain these further. Gary will lead an effort to coordinate this. Manny indicated that the MWB and Peter Rontey’s tutorial are posted on the ftp site. If any changes are required members should send Manny an email. Peter has limited time available because his responsibilities have changed. He may have room in an upcoming tutorial but is not offering tutorials regularly. '''April 6, 2010: John Garguilo suggested that this will be less of an issue with further development of NIST tools. John Garguilo will take the lead and attempt to gather the latest versions. He noted that Peter Rontey is unable to maintain the tool, but it may still be useful as a system to test against until the NIST tool provides that service. Al noted that another use for the MWB is to have a local system. John Rhoads suggested that it also provides useful reports. HL7 continues to recognize the MWB as a tool. Al asked if the NIST tool will produce an XML conformance profile. The NIST tools will accept XML profiles and might provide the conformance profile to use in the MWB. This will permit the MWB profiles to be updated in synch with NIST updates. John Rhoads suggested that GForge be used for version control. Date changed to May 31. August 17, 2011: Change date to Open. ''' January 3, 2012: There was a consensus that: With the availability of NIST’s interactive tool and NIST making the XML files (“performance profiles”) available, this Action Item will no longer be needed.  John Garguilo suggested closing this item and opening a new Action Item for Performance Profiles that would be used with tools such as SPY, MWB. Al suggested that the NIST tool is sufficient. Robert indicated that the XML files, the MWB and the NIST tool are helpful. A new item will be added, with Robert and John Garguilo responsible. '''

Ken suggested that ITI expertise and collaboration are desired, and that ITI may want to take the lead. John Garguilo noted that NIST has done some work in this area that may be helpful. He will investigate and bring the information to this WG. John Rhoads, Dominick, Richard, Ken, and Khalil volunteered and Brad offered to seek a Carefusion representative. August 17, 2011: Additional terms will be required in RTM. Change date to Oct. 18. There will be a meeting in Andover with Webex support regarding collaboration with ITI on security. It will include discussions on coordination between PCD and ITI. Change date to Oct. 18.
112 RTM and IEEE, HL7 for MEM Paul Steve Merritt October 18, 2011 OPEN May 2011 F2F, reviewed by TC June 1: Steve provided a list of MEM data to Paul for discussion at the recent IEEE meeting. It wasn’t addressed at the meeting. August 17, 2011: Change date to Oct. 18.

121 ACM ADQ-DDA CP Monroe Pattillo ___ OPEN F2F Oct. 2011: Submit a CP around the absence of an AA actor and the option to use the proposed ADQ-DDA actor in place of AA.
122 Wiki Page for Local Information John Garguilo December 9, 2011 OPEN F2F Oct. 2011: Add IHE-PCD Wiki page which provides local information - to include 'local' Trigger Events (labels starting with ^Z01). This page should also include other local IHE-PCD information such as local value sets, error codes, etc. Recommendation was to add this information to the existing OID page for IHE-PCD. Cochairs 11/15/11: Change date to Dec. 9
123 IPEC Trigger Event and MDCx terms John Garguilo, Jeff Rinda, Pump WG December 9, 2011 OPEN F2F Oct. 2011: IPEC Devise and add a scheme for Trigger Event (while waiting for a future HL7 version [e.g., 2.8, 2.9]. (1) Recommendation to add to OID Wiki page, perhaps with other IHE-PCD local value sets, trigger events, error codes, etc. (Garguilo). (2) (Rinda and team) - capture MDCX terms in what is needed by IEEE - to speed processing/vetting without prolonged waiting. Cochairs 11/15/11: Change date to Dec. 9
124 WCM Recast Ken Fuchs John Rhoads ___ OPEN F2F Oct. 2011: Restructure Document, consider an Actor Option (note: Option has to do w/ profile - e.g., Waveform option for DEC), add changes identified by the test effort (pointed out in Sandra's slides). If possible, demonstrate this work as part of HIMSS '12 'New Directions area' or within a PCD story - possibility to demo/proof of concept WCM at Connectathon and/or Virtual Connectathon. Manny will investigate new directions area at HIMSS12 (see PC action items). Provide a spreadsheet providing list of waveforms, and research waveform types (John Rhoads). Cochairs 11/15/11: Ken suggested that the use of OBR may address several issues by providing context, providing WCM with a structure similar to ACM.
125 PCIM Robert Flanders, Todd Cooper PCIM WG __ Close F2F Oct. 2011: Get feedback of approach from cendor community, integration folks (what are the adoption preferences for PDQ, PAM, others?). Consider safety issues around patient identity (Todd), contact AAMI and include in report to Mary from Todd. Later: Manny’s question: is this an opportunity for a presentation at AAMI in 2012 or a paper? Cochairs 11/15/11: Move to PC.
126 RTM/RTMMS: Address Missing Descriptors Paul  ? __ OPEN F2F Oct. 2011: Consider a 'project' or plan of how to identify descriptors in IEEE/missing - start with a search in RTMMS? Figure out, develop a roadmap plan and resource plan of how to resolve what is not complete or missing. (A) List of terms - but no other fields (not as trivial as one might think…); (B) Looking down the descriptor field, it's non-normative - and thus thin (start w/ a search). Question from Todd, item assigned to Jan Wittenber with help from Sandra?

128 Harmonization of Security Considerations Todd __ OPEN F2F Oct. 2011: Finalize and submit CP - across profiles regarding harmonization of security considerations text. Request more detailed scope from Todd.

130 TF Vol. 2 Issue John Rhoads Nov. 30, 2011 OPEN F2F Oct. 2011: Explore how to (or if) volume 2 needs to explicitly reflect that consumer actors need to gracefully process unknown (but properly formed) data. In other words if a DOC receives WCM OBX’s and doesn’t know how to process them it should continue on and not bomb out. Cochairs Nov. 15, 2011: Moved to TC.
