Set Due Date to October 22, 2014. October 15, 2014: Can use demographics for pre-connectathon. No errors or warning if EUI-64 not used yet. Can't use until all register and obtain an EUI-64. If provided, NIST can validate. Mention at the F2F for group preference. Could this be a Gazelle option? Brief F2F item (15 minutes). John G: Will have pre-conn link available to enter info. Not currently in gazelle. Change Due date to Dec 17, 2014. Have validation in pre-conn tool. Will ask for EUI or DNS for registration, prefer 1st 24 bits of EUI (OUI). Will pre-populate as much as possible. Do large organizations, are the 1st 24 bits across whole organization? It depends – patient monitors yes, but mass produced have different. Different business units can have different OUIs, depending on history. Each user will need to enter their info. Change date to January. Jan 7, 2015: Built into Pre Conn configuration page. Mostly done, could use some enhancements. Look at EUI-64, validating 24 bit now. Epic – don't look at EUI-64 specifically; it's used, but not required. Supposed to serve as a stable device ID. Discussion of topic and need for this specificity. Move to PC/TC call. Jan 21, 2015: Change date to February. April 22, 2015: Didn't get there this time.

Cost is reasonable ($1000) Move to September. Sep 2, 2015: This is a pre-connectathon issue. All is OK with a local identifier table. F2F likely best forum. John G will outline the changes and bring to F2F. Paul Schluter – How to ID vendor created private codes/terms? Extensive discussion on this issue – need implementation rules. Set date to F2F.
No. Action Item Owner Participants Due Open/Closed Description/Update 190 PRT Segment Use John R John R, Jeff Mc Sep 2, 2015 OPEN June 17, 2015: (From F2F notes) MEMLS and others use the PRT segment, Non PCD may use it as well. Migration from OBX-18 to PRT 10, Used PRT for ACM and MEM. Will need something firmer for others to use in newer HL7 versions. John R - v2.7 introduces PRT, expanded in 2.8.2 to include UDI. Deprecating OBX-18. UDI is part of PRT. Can maintain some backward compatibility. There is a versioniing Action item. John will write some info for the wiki, including links to good presentations. PCD needs to decide to all move to 2.8, or allow profiles to move as needed. How will TF change? We need to decide that. TC needs to discuss staying at 2.6 or moving to 2.7. Moving would be fairly minor, field length is longer in 2.7. We've set the precedent to this this by profile. Biggest gain is to refer to normative description in TF V2. Aug 5, 2012: No update, Change date to Sep 2 TC. 191 Liaise with IDCO on Waveform communication Paul Sc Paul Sc, Chris C Oct 21, 2015 OPEN June 17, 2015: IDCO is working mostly on waveform and annotating.
