  • Cross-enterprise Document Sharing for Imaging (XDS-I.b)
  • Canada Health Infoway, success story sites - a couple of deployments live; phasing in XDS-I province by province; some DIRs already set up
  • Action Item: Chris Carr to contact Jose Mussi about developing success stories in Canada; Martin Tiani about deployment in South Africa and Austria
  • Action Item: Contact companies that have previously tested XDS-I and encourage them to adopt updated protocol
  • Basic Image Review (BIR)
