      • Austin update on Tooling Strategy
      • Chuck Jaffe engaged Grahame Grieve to produce a Tooling Strategy. Grahame has produced an outline. Chuck expects a more complete draft for the WGM. TSC will be asked to review and endorse Grahame's document and the TSC will lean on the Tooling WG to make a recommendation. He'll circulate the document after the call. AMS asks what the input was for the document. Grahame worked with Jane and others involved with HL7 Tooling in the past. Jane shared the January WGM presentation from John with him, along with budget implications and strategies for trial requests for resources. Austin reports a mismatch between Board tooling strategy and others' vision. Jane notes there are members of Advisory Council that want tools for easier adoption.
    • PI# 742 Model Automated Exchange (MAX) for UML Models
      • MAX continues to move forward with conceptual design. Sept 5 is next meeting, AMS reports. The model will be used to facilitate requirements gathering. MAX resource funding has not seen a developer come forward yet. AMS approached CIC regarding re-issuing the proposals. They plan to compare requirements with EHR profiling to find common threads.
    • PI# 665 MIF based Publishing Phase II - Woody indicated last time he's making progress incorporating V3 generator, but not on the call today. We'll hear more by the WGM.
    Tooling co-sponsored projects
    • PI# 905 V2 Publishing Database Upgrade (Publishing sponsor)
      No requirements yet
    • PI# 885 HL7 Templates ITS Pilot (Templates sponsor)
      In progress, with Kai and Andy leading. Andy reports Kai has had some success mapping Trifolia into DÉCOR. They're also looking to integrate with MDHT storage files. Jane notes their constraints are expressed in OCL so will create an interesting exercise.
    • PI# 829 HL7 Templates Registry Business Process Requirements Analysis (Templates sponsor)
    • PI# 806 Development of policies and procedures of an HL7 terminology authority (Vocabulary sponsor)
      Andy has no update on this. Relationship with NLM submission tool, SNOMED issuing authority. Austin notes that the Board had discussed referral of a similar issue to the TSC to evaluate using NLM as our vocabulary host or source-of-truth. Jane asks about a project for the NLM tool? Andy thought there was one in development. This project is the one with which Tooling should be more closely aligned.
  • Jane reminds the liaisons that Thursday Q2 is typically liaison reporting and tactical planning. AMS asks for help with GForge - Lynn, Joshua or Andy can help. Jane asks Lynn to include such guidance on our communication plan for using GForge and version control.
  • Adjourned 10:48 AM EDT.
