  1. (5 min) Meeting Admin
    1. Roll Call -
    2. Accept Agenda -
    3. Approve Minutes from
    4. Review action items
  2. (20 min) Standing Committee Reports/Approvals
    1. CEO Report -
    2. CTO Report -
      • EA IP Update
        • Marc reports:In terms of progress, we have been focusing on pushing the Alpha candidates to get their charters completed as a key next steps to kick-start the next set of conversations. The PASS folks will be using the SOA meetings in Chicago to shape their draft; CDA R3 requested assistance which Lynn and I are trying to provide; the others (NCI and CTS2) are still thinking through their responses.
        • We will also be trying to push the overall EA work forward with the advisory group, being mindful of TSC guidance from the Saturday and Sunday mtgs.
    3. ArB Report -
    4. Affiliates Report -
    5. Domain Experts -
      • Project Approval Request: PORR DAM for Patient Safety at TSC Tracker #1054
      • Request to Publish Informative Document for PHER: TB DAM, TSC Tracker # 1057
      • DESD Kyoto WGM discussion – there was a desire to develop a standard reperesentation/format for the three year plans so an expected amount of detail can be presented and gleaned. It should not be a “make-work” project, but should at least be intelligible. This does not seem to be an issue unique to the DESD, but it needs to be something that both meets the need of the TSC and Board as well as the DESD.
        • Motion: The TSC provide a structure and format guideline for three year plans to the WGs that describes the content detail required for their own project guidance and decision making processes.
      • Some work groups need clarification on the recent deadline for new project submissions for the September ballot cycle. There are work groups in DESD and other steering divisions that are drafting new project proposals as we speak on the assumption that these projects can still be added in time for the Sept. ballot. Was May 24th a real deadline or not? If not, why do we call it a deadline, and what is the real deadline? If May 24th was a real deadline we need to clearly and unambiguously communicate that fact to the co-chairs and HL7 membership. In addition, it seems that those late projects would not be eligible for inclusion in the Sept. ballot.
      • DESD has approved Wendell Ocasio as the steering division representative to the ArB.
    6. Foundation & Technology -
      • proposed RASCI (Responsible, Accountable, Supportive, Consulted, Informed) chart discussion to manage the apparent overlap between various work groups and projects in our Steering Division: Draft RASCI chart. We would like to propose the approach and a first draft chart. In view of great upcoming changes, it may be useful to use RASCI charts for the entire organization collaboratively with the work groups to identify the responsibilities and interests of various stakeholder. A RASCI chart approach may be used for other new, cross-cutting activities initiated by the TSC.
    7. Structure & Semantic Design -
      • Project Approval: Clinical Genomics - Project Proposal (attachment) on Genetic Testing Reports (tabled from 2009-03-30, 04-06), see PSS at TSC Tracker # 917.
