  • SAIF Webinar
    • will be recorded at the WGM
    • Feb 5, 2014: Ron's day job interfered with his available time to record. He is looking to reschedule but no word yet.
Action: Patrick to follow up with Ron for next Education meeting
  • Request from US Domain task force to create an SDO Class for Government Contractors (Keith Boone)
    • The class would describe standards development practices of SDO's and how contractors can better engage with SDOs. While we would certainly focus a good portion of content on engagement with HL7, we have other SDO constituencies within HL7 (CDISC, DICOM and IHE) that can add to the material making it even more valuable.
    • If there is enough interest during the call in developing such a course, we could begin a Project Scope statement are start developing the material for delivery perhaps in May.
Action:  Melva to send back to Keith - if they believe there is enough interest - develop PSS and Tutorial Specification and submit for approval

Path to Certification

File:Certification Path.docx

  • Review of document created by Sharon
    • Feedback
      • we don't require experience for our certification. Is the Education column for what the candidates must have or a suggestion?
      • We don't have a certification program
      • Suggestions - v2 Control Specialist - an education degree may not help - expect that 1+ year experience in Health Care IT environment with some use of HL7
      • Do we have data on who has been successful? We don't have that kind of data - there is a real mix of who has been successful
      • Will need to have disclaimers
      • more generic "in our experience, some experience in health IT and knowledge of HL7...factors for success"
      • flow chart based on experience - that includes all of the offerings and where you insert yourself into the path
Action:  Continue the discussion on next Education call
