66 HL7 IHE-PCD Integration (Message) Profiles (i.e., Message Workbench [MWB] profiles) Gary Meyers Al Engelbert, John Garguilo, Todd Cooper, Robert Flanders, others? (Monroe, Nick). 2010.09.29 OPEN Previous history is available on this Wiki (see history tab).

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.

Note that once the final TF Vols are produce in early 2010, verify that the OIDs registered with IHE are still correct.

Once the PCD Technical Framework (Vols I and II) comment period ends (early September 2010) and the final versions are available (Trial Implementation Version), OIDs for the IHE-PCD Integration Profile transactions can be registered with Steve Moore at IHE. Todd set up Google Group and Wiki Page to establish a baseline. See
