Add to agenda: Request for support email draft by Lloyd.

  • Lloyd did send out M&C to Paul but discussion was deferred.
  • NIB: Needs edit of description of ballot document. Should now read: “This is an updated version of the FHIR DSTU specification reflecting implementer feedback as well as a significant set of new resources and capabilities.”
  • Anne awaiting response on Ambassador Program
  • Support solicitation email: group agrees that it looks good. Lloyd sent out message.
  • Connectathon – need to decide what scenarios we want to run in Paris. Would be running whatever goes to ballot. Terminology services might be of interest to Europeans. Could look at interoperability between where we’ve got alignment in profiles. Lloyd to reach out to Rene and Ewout regarding what types of scenarios might drive interest. Brian Post suggests that care planning and appointments be considered.
  • FGB: Have been talking about difference btw governance/management, and whether it makes sense for us to find a new member or two. Looking for ArB to choose Lorraine as their rep or appoint someone else. At minimum we’ll be looking for provider org rep and possibly one other. Asking people to think about whether they have any candidates that they think might be good in that role. May not be a long-term role given changes in governance structure.
  • IHE Connectathon –MHD profile is in public comment so no formal testing, but did some ad hoc testing of it in eight different implementations. Found a few issues with the spec but nothing with FHIR. Luxembourg Connectathon will do more formal testing of MHD. Very positive use of FHIR. Where are PDQM and PIX? PDQM is in trial implementation and PIX-M is just getting going.
  • Brian Post reports that in PA they’ve split up the resources but unsure of progress.
  • Add agenda item for next week: go over FHIR liaisons
  • Josh joins – quorum met.
  • John moves to accept NIB; Brian Post seconds.
  • 2015-1-28 minutes – John moves, Brian Post seconds. No objections/abstentions.
  • Josh wants to know about ballot timing. Lloyd states we’ll assess March 23rd the state of readiness. Content that we don’t feel is ready will be flagged. In the end what we really care about is putting out something that can be implemented without significant change before taking it normative. Discussion over future balloting and publishing schedule.
  • Call adjourned at 5:02.
