Q and A

  • Question from AMS for Jane (inaudible). Response: It is International - not realm specific.
  • Questions for Wayne:
    • AMS: Does your support of FHIR mean you're not supporting other standards? Your comment about migrating other standards to FHIR?
    • Wayne: FHIR focus is because it is in early stages, is moving rapidly, and there is a lot of interest - so it needs a little extra eattention. As far as migrating, what we want is to have a migration path available for people using V2 or something else.
    • Ioana: When you referred to products, we're several layers away from the actual implementations; maybe there is value to reaching out to implementer community to gauge adoption rates. And what does it mean, what hats we wear? We all wear at least two hats - volunteer and employee.
    • Wayne: The idea is to be honest and transparent in voting.
    • Rick Gimer: We have this duality of licensing. What do people think about changing that?
    • Wayne: I think it's worthy of discussion.
  • Questions for Stan:
    • Jean: The election slate being selected and approved by the board seems wrong.
    • Stan: The thinking behind that is that we can't assure that we have the skill set we need to make strategic decision. But people may think of it as gerrymandering. What we want is a strategic board and the only way we can see that through is making sure the candidates reflect that.
    • Jean: What is the problem we're solving?
    • Stan: If you don't see a problem, you won't see this as a solution.
    • Mark Shafferman: This replaces a democratic process where you approve a board selected by the board. I worry that one of the things that's made HL7 successful is the ability to be creative and adopt new things in a creative way; if I have a group that is selecting people just like themselves, I worry that will disappear.
    • Stan: The board is choosing the slate; the membership still votes who they want to vote for. You still get a vote. It's more of a middle ground. My perception is that we don't have the balance that is needed for a strategic board.
    • Lloyd: When the existing government chooses the next, it's not a democracy.
    • Stan: This is a process that is used by many other successful groups. It's a representative mechanism.
    • Lloyd: Perhaps the vision of an effective candidate could be communicated to the membership without removing their ability to choose.
    • How can we get the survey monkey link?
    • It's on the webpage under announcements.
    • Stan: It's the thought of the board that this is a better way, but it's up to the membership.
    • What is MH?
    • Lynn: Mobile Health. XParadigm is Cross-Paradigm.
