196 Add PCD specific values to HL7 table 78 John Garguilo June 5, 2019 OPEN From 2016 NA Connectathon. Status is in PCD TF v5 Vol2 page 119 at line 2890, but not in NIST Tool which only supports values from HL7 Table 0078. We can suggest table changes to HL7, John will take this to HL7.
April 21, 2016: Values are in TF. John will approach HL7 vocab group at their meeting in two weeks. Anticipates no issue. If not successful, will add XML table. Set to PC&TC meeting May 18.
- May 18, 2016: Couldn't find the term we wanted to add, please send it to John. Change date to June 1. Should be in Vol 2, reference to table 78. Set to next TC meeting.

- Oct 12, 2016: Add PCD specific values to HL7 table 78 – pp61 discusses it, we have values not in HL7. HL7: write up proposal for them to approve or not. These are generic enough for other to use them, it is also a way to get some null values in there. Can we create a local table to address it – Yes. We will need to do that for the Connectathon. But was only checked against HL7 table for DEC; need to add a local DEC table. May want to define a write operation as well. Targeting HL7 Jan 2017 to have values added to Table 188.8.131.52.2.5-3. Set due date to Feb TC meeting.

Items 200 - 209
Number Action Owner Participants Due Date Status Comments 200 MDS and VMD Requirements Paul Schluter June 5, 2019 Open June 27, 2018: Created. Need to make consistent, so they can be applied uniformly by NIST tool. Set to next TC meeting
- July 25, 2018: No update yet, move to F2F TC meeting.
- Oct 18, 2018: Loose, not tested by NIST tools. Required disclosure at CMI. Need to assemble ‘uber’ models. How rigorous. Part may include retrofitting specificity in TF. May need general x-type path. May be able to use a tool like FHIR’s to create the containment models. Also want to clearly state what containment is. Discussed options and current process with some examples. Need to work out wrinkles for multiple devices doing the same thing. Need to solve persistence issue. Example: BP monitoring channels, when expanding channels, need to ensure the original maintains its channel number. Discussed different IV pump models as well as monitoring. Found a challenge with ACM; Alarms and other messages. If the alarm is in the first message, then another message is generated with another field completed, the alarm may not be at the same location in the message. Oliver will draft a White Paper to address MDS, persistence and channel identification, what works, doesn’t work and mine fields. He has a lot of notes already. Will review Dec TC meeting.
- Dec 19, 2018 - Using it, NIST working on it. Until 10101r is out the door, won’t be able to focus on it. Not sure next stage of ‘done’ is. Push out to February, and discuss at DPI meetings.
- Feb 6, 2019: Nothing right now, move to next TC.
- Mar 6, 2019: Should be able to start on it again soon. Review next PC&TC
- Mar 20, 2019: No new info, could use a ½ hour discussion at F2F. Set to F2F
- Apr 25, 2019Related to the OBX-4 question, need to figure out what to do. It is a ‘should’, do we make it a ‘shall’? If so, we need to let implementer know well before Connectathon. Include Lexicographic order. Move out to June meeting.
201 Pump utilization - publicizing Paul Sherman Paul Sherman, Kurt Elliason, Tom Kowalczyk, Dalibor and Vishal June 5, 2019 Open July 11, 2018: Dave Dickey presented at HIMSS this year, but no reference to PCD. Could use them as a ‘live’ deployment. AAMI is willing to publish something, Paul Sherman will work on a document. Also suggest a White paper: Can be done any time, just need to let Mary know. Tom, Kurt, Dalibor and Vishal are willing to work on this.
- Sep 19 - no new activity, set to F2F.
- Oct 18, 2018: AAMI article – AAMI willing to publish an article, Paul still needs to put it together. White Paper – No progress either. Set to Dec TC call.
- Dec 19, 2018 - No new info, set to January call.
- Jan 2, 2019: No activity - Paul Sherman will ping the others, set to next month.
- Feb 6, 2019: B Braun will meet with to Dave Dickey and bring it up. Paul included this as an item in a recent IHE Int’l article. Set to next TC.
- Mar 6, 2019: BBraun talking to Dave Dickey, working on an implementation at Sarasota Springs hospital. Should have good material by next month. Push to F2F
- Apr 25, 2019: Tom has some info. Create a white paper for HIMSS and IHE. Move to June meeting..
202 MEMDMC CP to make PID and PV1 segments optional Monroe Pattillo Dalibor June 5, 2019 Open Apr 25, 2019: MEMDMC profile to change via CP to use a message template of ORU_R(as allocated by ONO) which affords it the ability to make the usage of the PID and PV1 segments as optional for MEMDMC use cases. If PID and/or PV1 segments are present they should be populated per the IHE PCD TF. We did this with ACM, so should be able to do so in MEM.
- May 1, 2019: Getting a new trigger event from HL7. We can start testing to this. Won’t make official until HL7 releases new normative. Will need to talk to NIST about flagging this in testing. Set to June TC.
203 Validation tool error related to CWE-23 Kurt June 5, 2019 Open Per TF, should be in HL7. But it’s not there. Removed during balloting for 2.8 without explanation. Alternate text exists, but were told not to use it. Need to let us use an existing one, or give us a new one. Or edit TF to remove the CWE-23 reference. Foreign languages – need to provide space for a local language. Would need to submit a petition to change V2.8. Alternate Text has definitions that don’t fit our use. Where do we put the other human language text. If we agree that CWE-10 is appropriate then we could use it; it would be IHE compliant, but not HL7. Can we have a 2nd alt text without an Identifier?
- May 1, 2019: No new info, set to June.
204 Gazelle and Proxy and NIST Tool improvements Monroe Paul Sherman June 5, 2019 Open Apr 25, 2019: Needs to go to the tooling group
- May 1, 2019: PCD proxy struggles. Could use more if proxy recognized PIV. Set to June.
