Agenda review

  • Notes of 20150902_PLA_call review
  • Action Items:
    • Mary Kay to followup with Alexander Henket to determine his availability to serve
    • Anne to submit checklist for website creation
    • Anne to add agenda item to co-chair dinner to announce SGB to co-chairs
    • Mary Kay to do formal reachout to meet with TRAC in Atlanta
    • TSC should review whether enough of TRAC's activities are handled by SGB that TRAC can be folded back into TSC
  • notional division of products into product families and lines, to provide examples for peer review.
    • Level of granularity
    • Identify which pieces are orphaned, and the political elements to be surfaced.
    • Positioning cross-product family artifacts (standards naming)
  • BAM-lite feedback and review
    • Governance on V2.x (v2.9 substantive changes)
    • develop form to request establishing a Product Family


  • Paul is the TSC appointed co-chair
  • What happens to PLA now? Once SGB determines that the charge is sufficient and creates DMP, PLA can go to sleep.
  • Russ said yes; and Alexander gave a conditional yes response
  • Austin: Actually, PLA still needs to consider the management piece. SGB covers the governance piece but we still need to consider product management and methodology.
  • Should we have a meeting in advance of the Sunday WGM?
  • Second co-chair will be elected on that Sunday
  • Paul will follow up with Alexander
  • First SGB planning call: 9/30 at 2:00 pm Eastern. Anne to send invite to all SGB and PLA members to first call.
  • Need to reach out to FGB to discuss SGB/FGB roles (Monday morning Q0)
  • Paul to reach out to Heather from HTA and also TRAC
  • PLA should start working on management groups. Each product family should have a management group. Structured Documents works like a CDA management group, for example, but it is not formally a management group.
  • PLA should first define what the management group role is. Is one M&C for a management group enough? Would the SGB then allow them to tailor management-group specific docs?
  • Discussion over projects that fall across families, such as CDA on FHIR - need to have understanding on who manages projects such as these. Cross-product-family governance issue.
  • Should do an update back to TSC regarding the next major focus of product management groups based on direction of SGB. Should start with CDA and 2.x.
  • Also need to identify the methodology groups and determine if they are willing to take on the role.
  • What is the timeframe for the report-back to TSC? Paul suggests we do that at the WGM.

Meeting Outcomes

  • Anne to send out invite to all SGB and PLA members to first SGB planning call on 9/30 at 2:00 PM Eastern
  • Paul to follow up with Alexander Henket regarding SGB service availability
  • Paul to reach out to Heather from HTA and also to TRAC
  • Update to TSC on PLA at WGM
