  1. Roll Call
  2. Approve Agenda - posted Sunday June 2.
  3. Approve Meeting Minutes -
    • Motion to approve by John; seconded by Melva. Abstain-1 (Ken); Against-0; motion carries.
  4. Work Group Updates
    • Education
      • Has not met since May WGM; meeting June 5.
    • Electronic Services
      • TSC requesting Electronic Services to host new project "Extension of DSTU Comments Site Functionality to Normative and Informative Standards": [1]
      • Austin Kreisler joined the call to discuss this TSC requested project to “normalize” change request process. TSC is requesting ES to take on this project which will expand the change request tracking used for DSTU to Normative and Informative standards. Structured Documents requested some modifications to the DSTU tracker which will be included in the project. Target dates not solidified yet; Ken reported ES is having bandwidth issues. ES has been working on the WGM Room Assignment project; unclear if this is higher priority. ES is meeting today but Ken will not be able to attend the ES call.
    • International Mentoring
      • During the International Mentoring Committee’s monthly “Healthcare IT Standards in Africa initiative” conference call (on 2013-05-31), Ms. Ticia GERBER (HL7, Director of Global Partnership and Policy) and John Ritter discussed the IMC's "Healthcare IT Standards in Africa initiative" activities and documents. Ticia is keen to collaborate with the IMC regarding the initiative. Items of interest/exploration include:
        • A recent email thread on the Education WG list discussed the quandary whereby education regarding HL7 standards sometimes also requires education about related standards (such as DICOM, SNOMED, or LOINC). Thus, if a Standards Collaborative Organization is explored (targeting regions in Africa), then an Education component should also be explored as a service offering.
        • Ticia intends to explore funding sources and to develop relationships with other organizations over the next year. She will keep the IMC (and its activities) in mind.
        • John Gachago is returning from Rwanda, Africa and will offer a report on Friday, 2013-06-07 12:00 pm Eastern U.S. regarding his IMC activities there. Contact John Ritter if you’d like to join the (SKYPE) call.
    • Process Improvement
      • Rita reported PIC last met April 29; PIC updated their SWOT with minor edits. PIC reviewed GOM and WGM Effectiveness comments; lack of remote capability is a growing concern. PIC also reviews First Time Attendee comments; Atlanta WGM had low attendance, may be in part to conflicting meetings (NCPDP).
    • Project Services
      • Rick reported PS is still waiting for the white paper from Ateeb Chaudhry with recommendations for project management in volunteer organization but working on findings Dr. Scott reported at the May WGM in the interim. PS reviewed deliverables for May/September and revised due dates where applicable.
    • Publishing
      • V2 - Brian reported no update this call; V2.8.1 and out of cycle ballots pending in June.
      • V3 - Andy reported V3 Pubs is working on FHIR IG quality and making progress.
    • Tooling
      • Andy reported final Q&A session for Tooling Challenge “Open Forum” is scheduled; will be judging Tooling Challenge entries over the summer. Tooling has released two new MIF updates: 2.1.7 and 2.2.1. Majority of tools use 2.1.6. V3 ballot site in future will use 2.2.1. Release notes detail changes between versions and include transforms between versions from 2.1.3 to 2.2.1.
    • Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) Management (Liaison, Brian Pech)
      • Brian reported FHIR will be looking for quality assessment volunteers, probably two weeks out. Planning DSTU ballot in September.
