  2. (20 min) Standing Committee Reports/Approvals
    1. CEO Report -
    2. CTO Report - In the last week, my activities have been primarily focused in three areas:
      1. Ed Hammond, Chuck Jaffe and I had several meetings at the offices of the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week. We met with John Glaser, Mike Fitzmaurice and Carolyn Bean on Tuesday. We met with Dr. David Blumenthal on Wednesday.
        Highlights of what we learned or discussed:
        • The initial “draft” interim regulations on “meaningful use” will be published tomorrow (June 16) for a 30 day public comment period. ONC will then have only thirty days to respond to any comments before sending the regulations on to OMB for publishing in the Federal Register before the end of the year—as required by the ARRA law.
        • All conversations were friendly and productive. Both John and David expressed interest in pursuing the finance plan. However, they first need to get the work of item 'a' above off their desks. When they do get back to us it sounds likely that if they pursue our plan they will want it enclosed in some sort of a contract with HL7. Both, however, were interested if further discussing an arrangement where they participated in HL7 at least at the same level as our other large government provider stakeholders (Canada and the UK).
      2. I then spent Wednesday afternoon and Thursday at the HITSP face-to-face meetings. The pressure there is quite intense because they are part of the same June 16 related deadline.
      3. I have completed a draft tooling out-of-budget request to the HL7 Finance Committee. Most of the hard work has been done by the HL7 Tooling Work Group, Publishing Work Group and Jane Curry. The Finance Committee call is in preparation for the Executive Committee Call and then the July Board Conference Call.
