Neutral Mapping

RW reported on current activities in the Neutral Mapping project

  1. Feedback from TSC
    • Did not approve the project scope statement
    • Austin Kreisler and Helen Stevens-Love identified the issues
    • 3 reasons
      1. Need to have a proper co-sponsor from at least 3 other work groups
        • RW confirmed that an Affiliate co-sponsorship could count as one co-sponsor
        • Will get co-sponsor from UK affiliate
        • Structured Docs will likely co-sponsor, RW attending teleconference on Thursday to move forward
        • Trying to establish contact also with Patient Care
      2. TSC confused by description of pre-evaluation phase
        • RW will rework to be more explicit
      3. Finally, getting to ballot by Jan 2011 was viewed as unrealistic, TSC suggested move to May 2011 and RW agreed
  2. Getting Feedback on draft
    • ITS should formally send to co-chairs for discussion
    • ITS should encourage WG members to review
    • GB noted that this is a general issue, and suggested the TSC should encourage others to participate
  3. Neutral Mapping at Cambridge WGM
    • An invitation to team that created the MDMI specification has been sent out with the hope that they could join us during the Cambridge WGM for an in person discussion
    • There was general consensus that adding a quarter to the discussion on Wednesday (Q3) so that there was a continuous, Q1->Q2->Q3 stream for the topic would be best
    • AS will try to book Wednesday Q3 as an additional quarter

General Discussion

The August 24th teleconference will be cancelled, the next teleconference will be August 31. AS will cancel the telecon notification.
