  9. Domain Experts Report– Austin Kreisler/Ed Tripp

      • Discussion deferred to save agenda time with quorum still available.
  10. Foundation & Technology Report– Woody Beeler/Mead Walker
    • Conference call on the 29th with discussion on MicroITS. FTSD is suggesting it’s not ready for ballot with existing project scope statement, needing coordination with other WG e.g. MnM, InM. Hoping for discussion in Cambridge in October to advance this.
  11. Structure & Semantic Design Report– Calvin Beebe/Gregg Seppala
  12. Technical & Support Services Report- Helen Stevens
    • No meeting, nothing for today from Helen.
    • Update on Online Presence project for Wiki Meeting Minutes – Lynn – ES co-chairs propose a change to the handbook to allow minutes to be posted on the WG web page OR (with a link from the web page) on the HL7 (only) wiki, but we should not drop our desire to implement protection of wiki pages. Although it is still a good idea, it appears that we are not under any time pressure to implement true locking. We should keep that ‘nice to have’ in our back pocket while we pursue whatever form of protection is easy to do (e.g., with parameter setting) without turning it into a project for which we do not have the resources.
  13. Membership Comments on Steering Division Reports – no comments
    • Marketing and promotion - update from HQ – no update
      • Woody notes they have not heard anything concrete that the Jan2011 WGM in Sydney is confirmed. Helen has already given that feedback to Karen, and Karen will be sending a message to the membership.
      • Helen has received a WGM Planning invite for Sydney. No meeting scheduled for Cambridge. Bob notes there is no plan for having a planning meeting for Cambridge. Helen notes that there was a request and expectation that all WGM have a planning group to promote and encourage maximum attendance. Changes being made to WGM plans with short-term budget considerations starting with Cambridge were hoped to be communicated to the TSC with Helen as liaison. Perhaps a biweekly call with Helen, Mark and Lillian.
      • Ravi notes that for even U.S. site meeting it still requires international travel for many attendees. Helen notes there is feedback from cochairs questionnaire that should be addressed.
  14. WGM Planning -
    • TSC preparations - Lynn Laakso
      • Cost savings decision to move the scheduling of Sunday TSC meeting to 7 pm (no dinner provided)
    • Working Group preparations - agendas
  15. Discussion Topics:
    • Report from TSC Nominations Steward, Ken McCaslin:
      Domain Experts: 1 nominee, having difficulty getting a second.
      Foundation and Technology: Have 3 nominees.
      Structured and Semantic Design: 1 nominee and potentially another.
      Technical and Support Services: 1 nominee and potentially another.
      International Affiliates: Have 2 nominees
    • TSC input to roadmap / product strategy / business planning
      • Adding a layer between Strategic Initiative and Roadmap Tasks, called Strategic Criteria to include the SMART tasks. Draft document will be reviewed by Roadmap task force tomorrow, share with TSC after Task Force meeting. Not adding particular projects at this time. Projects would refer back to specific criteria.
      • 2011 revised business model being developed by Internationalization Task Force. Budget adjustments will have significant impacts on Tooling investments.
      • Ravi asks how one Roadmap initiative spanning multiple projects, how will success be measured? As new projects come about the new projects are tied to the criteria so that progress on an objective can be measured. Ed asks if there will be a flag on a project to indicate if they are tied to strategic initiative? The check boxes at the bottom of the Project Scope Statement are a start but we’ll have to evaluate ourselves based on these criteria at the end of the year.
    • Helen leaves the call.
    • Austin notes we need to identify projects that need strategic resources from HL7. How will we allocate resources to those projects deemed strategic? What resources does HL7 have to be allocated? Charlie notes that the statement of the strategic initiative target for a project is valuable even if no resources are offered. Projects will also be used as metrics for CxO organization evaluation. Charlie sees value even without resources to allocate.
    • In consideration for the state of existing technical infrastructure, and any potential cuts in tooling development would call for TSC involvement in the decision process.
  16. Call adjourned at 11:55am
