(Personally, I'd like to prioritize time to get a bunch of TI Profiles to FT (and maybe retire a couple) - KOD)


Target Dates:

  • Publish CP Ballot in early-Jan 2018? (for CPs needed for IHE-Europe Connectathon in April 2018) (is this enough time?)
    • Allow adequate time at the Nov F2F Meeting to prep for this
  • Publish CP Ballot at end-of-April 2018
  • Incorporate FT CPs into updated TF released July 2018

Prioritize TI profiles: There are current a large number of Radiology profiles remain in TI for a long time. Sometimes new profiles reference transactions in these TI profiles, making understanding these new profiles challenging, involving reviewing multiple documents and find the relevant sections. To address this problem, we need to review them to determine if the profile should be promoted to Final Text or deprecated.

Profile Last Published
Image Fusion (FUS) Integration Profile 2006-04-13
Nuclear Medicine Image Integration Profile (NMI) with Cardiac Option 2007-05-17
MR Diffusion Imaging (DIFF) 2009-06-21
Chest X-Ray CAD Display (CXCAD) 2010-06-17
Post-Acquisition Workflow (PAWF) 2012-06-15
Multiple Image Manager/Archive (MIMA) 2012-07-24 Note: already identified to dissolve and move the relevant content to different profiles / TF. Tracked in CP-RAD-228

Number of outstanding CPs:


List of "priority" CPs:


List of "non-trivial" CPs:

List of outstanding items not yet submitted as CPs:


List of other maintenance tasks (proposed priority):

  • Repeat TOP TEN CPs process
  • note that the list of CPs is increasing, not decreasing
  • CP author distribution
  • Consider which might help a profile go to FT
  • Consider organizing batches of CPs around themes (Profile or topic) so we can get relevant domain experts on that call and keep them engaged
  • Add 2 (estimated) FT Supplements to TF (e.g. SWF.b, IID?), for this we need applicable CPs closed
  • Review of old supps for retirement


  • Profile Pages on Wiki
  • Suggest to DCC that maybe these should be posted to Wikipedia for greater visibility?
  • Although Google finds it on wiki.ihe.net
  • IHE would lose some control if it's on Wikipedia and they might not like our "practical details" section.
  • In any case, Job #1 is to get the text written.
  • In practical terms, the author of the profile likely has to be involved.
  • Build it into the Webinar work?
  • Assign this as offline work for any TC members who do not have a profile this cycle (Antje volunteers to help)

7. Risks

  • Effort underestimated for other activities, less effort spend on maintenance
  • Lack of appropriate knowledge, there is a lack of expertise in HL7v2 area

9. Tech Cmte Evaluation

Effort Evaluation (as a % of Tech Cmte Bandwidth):

Total Maintenance load

  • 40%, including finalizing WIA


For reference from recent cycles:

Cycle 2016-17 2015-16 2014-15 2013-14 2012-13
Maint Allocated 15% 35% 30% 30% 15%
Maint Used 36% 45% 62% 29% 19%

Discussion

  • What do we want to do in the normal time allotted.
