    • Austin Kreisler (DESD) Monday, June 8, 2009 4:02:24 PM EDT CIC should submit an updated 3 Year plan shoing this project and other recently approved projects.
    • Melvin Reynolds (Devices)
      • Abstain, with intent to vote positive if issues are clarified.
      • Whilst agreeing (I think) with the spirit of this proposal it would appear to need some additional work.
      • 2.a. Project Intent - Other' seems (unintentionally if '4. Project Scope' is right?) to exclude paramedical or first responder actions.
      • 5. Project Objectives and Deliverables' has a solely US focus (underlined by '8.b. Project Resources') - whereas '10. Realm' indicates 'Universal'.
      • It would seem to be a pity for this potentially valuable contribution to be limited to US needs; on the other hand it may be that local needs mean that a universal DAM is not possible in the time available. The applicability therefore needs to be clarified.
      • Finally, in the interests of joined-up working, it would seem to be appropriate for this work to be related to at least the EHR WG, and to the work on DCMs. Similarly, Devices WG would be interested in information modelling related to device-related data. Such links appear lacking in the current New Project Scope Statement.

      1. Inclusion paramedical or first responder actions. The project most certainly includes the actions of paramedical and first responders. It includes the actions of all EMS responders including medical assessment and intervention actions. The project includes all actions taken in response to a medical emergency in a pre-hospital setting.
      2. Universal v. US Domain. The project is Universal because we hope to include input from other members of CIC. Admittedly the project team is US based, funding is from a US agency however, the project calls are open and CIC has extended an open invitation for participation. International participation is welcomed and encouraged. The DAM will most certainly be international in perspective. There may end up being derived specification that are US domain specific if we are unable to garner the international participation we are seeking. However, that is not our goal.
      3. Collaboration with related work efforts. The project is aware of its relationship to other work efforts internal and external to HL7. We have EC, PC, and PHER as co-sponsors along with CIC as an effort to reach out to other work efforts. We are also keeping an eye on activities going on in IHE and HITSP. We have regularly scheduled joint sessions with all of the sponsors to facilitate collaboration across project. And we have made an explicit commitment to work with the EC workgroup which is building a DAM for in-hospital emergency services.
