  • SAIF Webinar
    • draft tutorial specifications reviewed by ARB
    • expecting recording to be done in December
  • UML
    • we have all material from JD
    • evaluate after the January WGM
  • Request from Security WG to add their "free" tutorial to the Tutorial Grid for May 2014
Action: Mary Ann will send tutorial specification and determine requirement
  • 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

Project Approval
