  • Initially this will be a single PSS, but may result in multiple PSS’s …
    • What does not need to be addressed in HL7 because it is being handled elsewhere?
    • Where are there gaps that need to be addressed?
  • (Donnelly) Did receive a copy of the document
    • Added a tracking spreadsheet entry based on that document
  • NOTE: No PSS project number issued yet
  • PSS will be submitted to a number of different groups in the next couple weeks
  • Other groups engaged …
    • JIC: has an active project on UDI (ref. Christian Hay + Moehrke / Cooper / …) - see attached

    • (Scott) NCPDP also … recently completed project, primarily to capture and communicate the UDI string
  • What is the HSI’s role with this PSS? Should it be referenced in this tracker item?
    • Identified that there are other HL7-external groups … so YES it should
    • Role is to facilitate coordination between external boundaries?
