  • It was agreed there are no less complex alternatives to the simple DIM & protocol effort. The challenges is motivating the industry to adopt any open standard solution.
  • Developing a path to FDA approval of multi-vendor medical systems was explored as a mechanism for creating pull for open standards solution (not simple DIM specifically)
  *FDA currently recognizes IEEE 11073 family of standards.
  *One approach is to provide implementation guidance and testing to facilitate regulatory submissions.
  *Another approach is to secure mandate similar to all EMRs exporting FHIR when asked.
  *It would be relevant to understand Julian Goldman's work.
  *FDA mainly about safety. For interoperability we may also look at other government agencies.
  • It was agreed to plan for F2F in Helsinki and stand ready to participate in Devices Domain. Barry to take lead on simple DIM / D2C project, Keith on Mobile Health Apps, Thom technical marketing, Jacob on CODE.
  • Martin introduced the new PCH subdomain wiki landing page and welcomed comments. Thom to learn timeline for IHE moving to Confluence to determine the level of effort porting to wiki in the meantime.
