Supporting Documents

Minutes/Conclusions Reached:

  1. Visitors:none; though expected someone from Mitre on ITS project
  2. Agenda: approved by general consent
  3. 2010-03-08_TSC_Call_Minutes approved by general consent
  4. Action items: approval of Ballot Items list
    • Informative ballots: Changes to the CDS informative ballot projects; informative ballots for CDS had name changes amended. Informative ballots approved unanimously.
    • DSTU Ballots: DSTU Ballots discussed, regarding Security DAM as DSTU (on Normative track). Amended to approve as Informative for now and allow them to come back with justification.
      • Vote: DSTU ballots as amended approved unanimously.
    • Normative Ballots: question on Medication CMETs actually under Pharmacy Work Group, listed as Project 249 with Pharmacy CMETs but ballot request is under Orders and Observations. This was clarified by during-call confirmations with Hugh Glover and Don Lloyd.
      • Vote: Normative ballot content approved unanimously.
    • Alternate Ballot open dates: alternate open date for CDA R2 Implementation guides becoming prevalent. This allows 30 days and no more, but the cushion is for post-processing for ballot site preparation. It would make it simpler if all ballots could open at once and close at once. Do we ask Publishing to deal with it? See if they can identify an alternative solution. Recommendation carried by unanimous consent.
      • Vote: Alternate ballot open dates approved unanimously.
    • Continuing Normative ballots: not requiring TSC approval. Open ballot pool approved.
    • Vote: For Comment Only ballots: IDMP ballot approved unanimously.
  5. CEO report - none
  6. CTO report - heading to Barcelona today; Chuck and Bob already there. Committee meeting on Thursday. NIEM and process to replace HITSP are of concern.
  7. ArB - all four frameworks ready to go to peer review. Two topics of interest, this past meeting ECCF, BF and GF ready to go, and SAIF Intro. The Information Framework is taking shape but not ready to go yet. Ann Wrightson has provided some input that Cecil and he are trying to incorporate. ArB and especially Cecil reviewed Privacy and Security service project and are supporting it.
    • No further alpha project charters available; need to check with Marc.
  8. Affiliates: no report
  9. DESD - one project approval in process this morning.
  10. FTSD - Gerald Beuchelt from Mitre now identifies himself to offer resolution to questions. The word Messages in line 2 of section 4 in project scope to 'payloads'. There will be a subsequent clarification in May as to what will be balloted in September. Current project is for the research phase, with expectation that a new scope statement will be advanced for the balloted material.
    • Vote: unanimously approved as amended.
    • Small support group has been formed to support John's queries on NIEM.
  11. SSD SD - Gregg reports no activity this past week.
  12. T3SD - no representative.
  13. WGM:
    • WGM information wiki page on HL7 Wiki at http://wiki.hl7.org/index.php?title=WGM_information.
    • Austin notes that one DESD WG noted that the 'leisure' destination for this meeting and the travel cost are discouraging many typical attendees from even trying to request the permission to attend.
  14. Discussion
    • Discuss Ken Rubin's suggestion to have the Project proponent (co-chair or project lead) attend the TSC to discuss/defend the scope statement, with the expectation that "minor" changes can be agreed on-the-spot without a cycle-back to the Steering Divisions.
    • Don't want to make it a requirement, but a proactive and directed request. Ed suggests is it a problem that if there are questions we table it a week and invite the project reps back to discuss. Let's draft some verbage to address to communicate the process to the membership.
  15. Adjourned 12:02 pm EDT.
Actions (Include Owner, Action Item, and due date)
  • Lynn to draft process on project facilitators should be aware of for being present on conference calls to address any issues.
