Connectathon Management

  • Sandy: Just under 70 registered so far. Haven't received anything yet this week. Have sent out the pre-connectathon questionnaire. Has talked with all leads and shared orientation template.
  • Richard: Plan to do usual break-out sessions on Sat. am; Continuing to work on test scripts; Do we want to ask track leads if they need assistance?; Suggest that we add what release the track is using as part of the orientation template; ACTION: Sandy will communicate that need to the track leads
  • David: He's put the tracking sheet together; but spreadsheet is huge; Has built an application to help manage things instead; Provided a demo of "Connectathon Manager" (http://snapp.clinfhir.com:4000/#).
    • Lloyd: Scenarios may have multiple participants or even only one participant. David: Not sure I want to tackle that for this release
    • Test Track Descriptions - Roles are shown as sibling of Scenarios because that's how we do it now, but they're nested under the covers
    • Lloyd: Can we pre-load all registered attendees? David:Yes
    • Decision - do we want to use this, old spreadsheet approach or something like IHE's Gazelle. (David hasn't had a chance to dig into the capabilities of Gazelle and how good a fit they are.)
  • Josh: is the notion of pass/fail useful everywhere? David: some places yes, some no. Can also capture notes
  • Richard: Can also record results using test script tool - could we integrate?
  • Lloyd: Would be nice to be able to link to tracker items
  • Lloyd: we need to evaluate Gazelle as to whether it's available and will meet (or be extensible to meet) our needs
  • Lloyd: Open to the possibility of David's tool being one of the options on the table for tracks (others being spreadsheet or TestReport or nothing)
  • John: Not sure if they'll use Gazelle this time. Richard: Gazelle has a heavy lift for setup; John: some value in being consistent - as we start getting more sophisticated, that could be more important
  • discussion about whether track leads should do the configuration or David do it. David will do some thinking about it
  • Decision: will let track leads decide what they want to use. Will set up a recorded gotomeeting to show to track leads.
