  • Agenda review
  • Approval Items:
  • Discussion Topics:
    • HL7 board is going to become more strategically focused. Are there strategic topics that the US Realm would like to see the board consider?
    • Progress on ONC education session at May WGM regarding ONC activities with HL7, FHIR, Data Access Framework, Structured Data Capture, etc.
    • Integrating US Realm and ONC activities into the international community.


  • Agenda review
    • Decision to delay the third item on international integration to a future call when Ed can be present
  • MOTION by Austin that non-standard based products that support previously reviewed US Realm standards do not need further review at the US Realm Steering Committee. Calvin seconds. Tony amends that they should come as a notification; Austin and Calvin accept the amendment.
  • VOTE: all in favor
  • Lorraine notes that we need to route this to project services
  • Calvin to send Anne a document that we will handle in this matter
  • Reviewed Pharmacist Care Plan PSS. Zabrina Gonzaga here to present project.
    • Paul suggests the work itself should be international, although the implementation will be US. Shelly notes that it is jointly sponsored by NCPDP, which is US Realm. Also will support Medicare Part D. Focus is on medications. Paul: should we expect that Pharmacy and Patient Care be cosponsors? Pharmacy is already. Discussion over whether or not this is “the” pharmacist care plan or “a” pharmacist care plan. Noted that the document repository is not HL7. Noted that the joint copyright agreement expires before the end of the project; group recognizes that as a risk as well as the material being housed elsewhere.
    • MOTION to approve by Lorraine; second by Austin.
    • VOTE: all in favor
  • Strategic topics for US Realm:
    • US Affiliate – is it a strategic goal?
    • Managing the FHIR tsunami
    • With the advent of direct US funding of activities within HL7, should those issues be coming through the USRSC (such as Argonaut)
    • Lack of knowledge of external projects. Put on 2016-01-26 agenda to discuss with Ed.
    • Progress on ONC education session: Johnathan not present to discuss.
  • UDI – seeking clarification from ONC on additional fields. Mark Roche is looking into it and will get back to Paul.
  • Adjourned at 1:33 pm Eastern
