  2. Approve Agenda - Approved
  3. Approve Meeting Minutes -
  4. Work Group Updates
    • Education
      • Regrets from Melva
    • Electronic Services
      • Lorraine reported ES has met once since last call, completed first round of feedback on WG room scheduling evaluation; working on value proposition for contributing to ES to encourage participation, could be used by potential participants to explain value of participation to employer – less visible mapping to tie in to "day job". PSS pending re: technical support for FHIR; Tooling and ES also involved. Probably will be agenda item for January WGM; requirements are targeted for January; Loyd will be working on those.
    • International Mentoring
      • John reported participated in HL7 Policy Meeting in DC; between 40-50 participants, mix of government (NLM). Ticia Gerber did great job setting up meeting and videotaping the conference. She will be writing newsletter article, present to International Meeting, and expect a briefing at HL7 WGM morning session. IMC presented re: their mission, affiliates, how standards are rolled out in new affiliates, etc. focusing on policy perspective.
    • Process Improvement
      • Not represented on the call; still looking for a new co-chair.
    • Project Services
      • Working on 2014 PSS for January roll-out, prep for WGM, and providing input for WG scheduling. Ken suggested PS add to PS. Freely IP not available to membership without license/"registration", but sometimes distributed on the WG list. Because of change in membership/IP access process, should be more efficient in protecting IP. May want to alter PSS to include that final products should not be available to non-members via list/wiki. Ken hopes this issue can be resolved by education vs. infrastructure enforcement. Lorraine commented this might affect GForge postings. Andy commented Publishing uses GForge for V3 Publishing, has been locked down in past. There are mechanisms but have not been worked out – want to use technical support vs. technical constraint. Some WGs use wikis vs. GForge for document posting. Also, can use "Documents" section of HL7.org and restrict to "Members Only" to restrict views. Ken commented we have not clearly defined what constitutes IP. Protection is for 90 days (prior to general license availability)
    • Publishing
      • V2 - V2.8 QA checks discovered XML issues; TSC approved publishing V2.8 in 2013, then issue technical correction notice via errata, or an incremental release for XML cleanup. V2.8.1 can be published after V2.8 is published. Future project for V2 example clean up. V2.9 proposals are still open, anticipate V2 work for next several cycles. FHIR/Technical Support Tooling and ES- working on PSS to look at publishing support for FHIR publication – need to support at least three versions at any one time: current ballot, prior ballot, development, connect-a-thon support.
      • V3 - Possible Work Group Health Measure - Late Ballot openings - V3 ballot opened December 13. More requests for late ballot openings; suggestion made in Publishing to consider as a Work Group Health item. Andy took action to discuss at SD, then propose to TSC. This issue was also discussed at TSC; Lynn confirmed was referred to TRACK. John commented on EHR/PHR experience, delayed but did not feel was cost effective, felt should "hold feet to the fire" to meet publication dates. Andy commented co-chairs are responsible that ballot content represents what the WG approved for publication. Lorraine summarized: late openings are appropriate WG health metric, indicator of limited resources, late engagement by WG, etc. – whether avoidable or not, valid metric to watch. Freida suggested might use WG metric to give visibility but not ding WG initially. John suggested to track stats for a year but not decrement/ding a work group. Andy was trying to get feedback from T3SD; plans to work with TRACK or champion with TSC as his next step.
    • Tooling
      • Firming up plans for next year's Tooling Challenge; Andy to work with Lynn; needs to review FMG PSS.
    • Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) Management (Liaison, Brian Pech)
      • Discussed above/publishing PSS, waiting for input Paul Knapp. Ballot not yet passed per the numbers; TSC deleted to FMG authority to approve posting to Ballot Desk Top. Preparing for connect-a-thon at January WGM. FHIR Governance Board has not met recently, anticipates change to include additional representation.
    • Product Line Architecture (Liaison, Brian Pech)
      • Lorraine attended last call; dependent on BAM process input on some items. Discussed process of establishing V2 product family.
