Agenda Topics

  • Other/New Business


Minutes/Conclusions Reached:
Call to order 2:05 PM

  • Roll Call & Agenda Review approved by general consent
  • Approval of previous minutes from 2013-06-20 Tooling Call; Woody moves approval and John seconds,
  • Review action items -
    • #2294 find out about how HL7 can offer post-graduate certifications - Lynn discussed with Sharon Chaplock
    • Question on whether we can reasonably expect that we would get useful support from this participation. Learning curve is steep.
    • Marketing committee developed content outlines. Lynn suggests that their outreach was for introductions to standards and not the tooling for standards. This could be added to the course outline.
    • Wilfred asks about if it is entirely virtual. Direct interaction with university to students versus promoting a webinar. Virtual environment where students enroll is a good approach where we risk inaccurate knowledge if the university develops their own curriculum. HL7 not accredited to award post secondary credit
    • Purpose of the SWOT analysis in pursuit of the University Partnership program to evaluate if it should be pursued. Tooling WG may choose not to pursue.
    • Dennis would like Andy, Michael and Jane to review and discuss further next week to decide if it will go forward.
  • Reports:
    • PI# 913 HL7 Tooling Challenge - challenge entries submission deadline is Monday July 1st. Direct email request for review and feedback prior to submission declined. Two entrants already have checked material into Gforge.
    • PI# 801 Tooling Strategy and Process Revision
    • Still - seeking input on Tooling documentation list Lynn would like to work with individuals known to be familiar with the tools and suggestions were made by the group.
    • Tool-endorsement process: Austin/John received a request from Sparx and would like the Tooling Work Group to craft a statement, explaining how HL7 uses the tool but stays away from being an endorsement or the tool, to be posted on Sparx's community site. Josh to create a draft after July 11. Could be as simple as used by WGs xyz and could do that for RSA as well. Might be better off to make a statement for all HL7 use of COTS tools. What will happen when IBM and Altova wish our endorsement.
  • Review projects:

No other project updates

Adjourned 2:45 PM.
