Ioana Singereanu proposed that the HL7 Health Care Devices Work Group take up for consideration some of the high-priority items recently discussed by IHE Patient Care Devices domain, particularly device-patient association. Jan Wittenber brought up the history of standards development organization consideration of the issues involved and pointed out that the matter in its full generality has many ramifications that touch on the concerned of a number of SDOs, and proprietary vendor interests.
There was consensus that, true as this was, there would be value in investigating and analyzing further what role if any HL7 HCD should take in progressing this, what the use cases and conceptual entities ought to be considered, and whether other SDOs (for example AAMI) are better placed to take the lead.
It was agreed that Ioana would work on this preliminary analysis, post some material on the wiki and email to alert the other members to get the discussion started.
The next phone meeting will be deferred till after the holidays, specifically January 10.
Initiate wiki discussion of device-patient association principles and scope (Ioana, comments from rest of group).
