May 2011 F2F, reviewed by TC June 1: RTM and IEEE, HL7 for WCM: Paul and Ken took the WCM parameter list to the recent IEEE meeting to seek codes for those attributes currently lacking definition, but this was not addressed. This will be an ongoing effort. Some will need to be maintained as Rosetta and not IEEE terms. John Garguilo noted that terminology life cycles were discussed at the IEEE meeting. It was documented and is available from John. Some new terms begin within the RTM, having term codes of zero and then are submitted to the IEEE. Due June 29 for RTM, September 1 for IEEE.

No. Action Item Owner Participants Due Open/Closed Description/Update 140 Assemble the Baseline Set of Standards for Easy Reference Ioana John Rhoads April 2014 OPEN Oct. F2F 2012: Assemble the baseline set of standards used by PCD, providing the complete stack or dependency standards/specifications (or pointer to that set). Ioana's suggestion relates to a new user perspective - trying to dive into the specs - what looks deceivingly simple, is not, with layer upon layer. Is this the responsibility of the MDICC? July 10, 2013: John Rhoads announced that HL7 now makes it possible to view their standards for no cost. Monroe noted that the cost for IEEE standards is prohibitive for new and small organizations. PCD will investigate access to base standards. Add John Rhoads. Manny to ping Ioana.

HL7 2.8: Monroe noted that ACM and IPEC are affected by 2.8. Todd noted that IPEC has an interest in 2.9. Todd suggested that there be a section in the TF that identifies version change impacts. July 10, 2013: Change date to October F2F. Nov 20, 2013: May fall out with implementation guide. Change date Feb 28, 2014 Change date to April 2014 F2F 147 Edit IPEC Todd 03/05/2014 OPEN Oct.

Todd will edit the IPEC TI version to include the approved CPs and provide it to Mary to publish. Nov 20, 2014: Will need to check with Todd Cooper (Paul Sherman will contact) - Paul contacted Todd; Some IPEC work went out as a CP, but Todd is unsure if this is part of it; he will check his notes. Change date to Dec 3, 2013 Feb 19, 2014: Ping Todd for comment or plan. change date to March 5, 2014.
No. Action Item Owner Participants Due Open/Closed Description/Update 150 Seek null flavors in HL7 2.9 Doug, Ioana April 2014 OPEN Oct. F2F 2012: For PCIM these could indicate the known missing identification. Ioana believes this should be the responsibility of the developer and the TF can specify how to do this. Added by John G: Real issue is legacy device adapters -more of a gap analysis of what device does NOT support. E.g., Declaring conformance to the delta of what is/not provided by PCD-01 -this would be part of the technical specification. Where would this be defined by the developer? August 21, 2013: Change due date to August 28, 2013. Nov 20, 2013: change close date to end of 2013Feb 19, 2014: Change date to April F2F 152 Improve FTP Site John Rhoads Plannng Committee April 2014 OPEN Oct.

Should the OID be defined to the Interaction Level? Where should this be documented (e.g., TF volume 2)? August 21, 2013: Reviewed, leave open Feb 19, 2014: have OID structure, haven't registered the tree. Change date to April F2F

161 Connectathon Loss of Connectivity Test Manny PCD Connectathon and Showcase WG August 6, 2013 OPEN Spring 2013 F2F: Manny will add the aluminum foil test (optional) in this cycle. August 21, 2013: Change due date to Sep 4, 2013 162 Data Capture Indicator Manny May 22, 2013 OPEN Spring 2013 F2F: Ask the EHR vendors about the current state of affairs. Manny to poll EHR and Interface vendors to learn what is in place. Lab data is likely processed with this in mind. This is not an immediate priority item for solution. August 21, 2013: Change due date to Sept 4, 2013 163 Error Codes Jeff Rinda, Todd ? OPEN Spring 2013 F2F: Should Profiles Include Error Codes? Refer to Pump WG (Jeff and Todd) to ask if there is a reason to retain the existing codes or to handle other than MSA, as alarms. May 1: The general solution will be captured in Rosetta; pump specific items in the ACK referred to the Pump WG in the existing implementation. The Pump WG may wish to add alerts. The goal is consistency and unification between all, using the same values for alarms, alerts. August 21, 2013: Leave open no changes 164 Increase Testing Rigor Manny, Paul Sherman PCD Connectathon and Showcase WG August 6, 2013 OPEN Spring 2013 F2F: Richard Lane noted we don’t test all mandatory items in a profile. Connectathon test should indicate what optional and mandatory elements are tested. West Health is working to automate testing, logging and that will make more time available and provide other benefits. This could be applied to the Virtual Connectathon as well. The Virtual Connectathon is optional and even the Pre-Connectathon (NIST) testing was on the honor system. John Rhoads added that Virtual Connectathons multiple times a year would be beneficial and that traceability to the profile (i.e., this part of the test is based upon this part of the profile) is desirable. August 21, 2013: Change due date to October 2, 2013 165 Traceability of NIST test tool and the TF/Profile Richard and Bob May 22, 2013 OPEN Spring 2013 F2F: Research the traceability between the NIST test tool and the TF/Profile. 166 Enhancing Pre-Connectathon Testing Richard and John Garguilo May 10, 2013 OPEN Spring 2013 F2F: Various components. 167 Versioning and Archiving John Garguilo May 10, 2013 OPEN Spring 2013 F2F: John Garguilo will follow up on versioning at the HL7/IEEE meeting in Atlanta. John Rhoads suggested that the TC look at archival records in general 168 Documentation and Testing of Additional Risks Todd, John Rhoads May 10, 2013 OPEN Spring 2013 F2F: Monroe recommended that the broader issue of managing risks other than Cybersecurity be brought to the DCC. John Rhoads added that the discussion include reference to risk analysis. Todd indicated that the ITI Security Cookbook is the place where risk management is addressed. There is a clause providing a location to address issues other than security and suggested that John Moerke would be a useful resource. He added that a separate section in the TF would be appropriate. Todd and John Rhoads will initiate a discussion with John Moerke at the Atlanta meeting.
169 Improving Integration Statements Todd, Steve Merritt ? OPEN Spring 2013 F2F: Seek to increase requirements for the IHE DCC lntegration Statement to include mandatory fields; and to address various levels of testing and utilization (e.g., certification). The product registry may lead to a listing of commercially available systems. May 1: Ask Steve to kick off proposal preparation and form tiger team. Richard Lane: Need to consider having participant’s indicate their successful testing of ‘Optional’ or ‘Conditional’ test cases during the Connectathon. This would help support future certification. More importantly, it may assist future purchasers of IHE compliant products in determining if the product is capable of meeting their actual functionality and feature needs. John Rhoads recommended the TC prepare a specific proposal for the DCC. Steve Merritt will be added to initiate the effort. Certification and other elements are involved in the resolution if the IS is to provide all that may be desired.
