    • Open Issues List
      • #1636 - Review Project Scope Statement for U.S. Healthcare Readiness Project
        • Motion: Approve Project
      • #1606 Guidelines for Universal projects: Austin to draft paragraph
        • The following are a set of guidelines drafted by the TSC for the purpose of providing guidance to work groups as they decide whether or not a proposed project should be considered a universal realm project or a realm specific project. Projects meeting one or more of these guidelines are certainly candidates for being universal realm projects.
          • Stakeholders representing 2 Realms at a minimum, where stakeholder should be interpreted as a specific group or organization listed in the External Project Collaboration section or the Stakeholders / Vendors / Providers section of the project scope statement
          • Requirements coming from a minimum of 2 Realms
          • Project will be implemented in a minimum of 2 Realms
          • Minimum of 2 Realms represented on project team
        • In the future, the project scope statement template may be updated to allow this realm representation clearer. In the interim, work groups are encouraged to document in the scope statement:
          • What realms an group or organization is representing
          • What realms project team members represent
          • What realms a project will be implemented in
          • What realms requirements are being drawn from
        • It should be noted that other considerations outside these guidelines may dictate that a project should be universal. For instance any project developing a normative base standard such as CDA R3 or the Composite order should probably be a universal realm project. Such projects should strive to meet the above guidelines but may not be able to for a variety of reasons. In the circumstance where a sponsoring work group believes a project should be universal but doesn't meet the above guidelines, the project can still be put forward as universal, but the sponsoring work groups should clearly indicate in the project scope statement that additional realm participation is needed in the project. The project approval process may surface additional realms wishing to participate.
      • #1590 - TSC Review of Project Approval Process
        • The TSC needs only to review Affiliate-sponsored projects which contain affiliate-specific deliverables and not any technical deliverables. Previously, the process had the TSC approving these types of projects.
        • During their review, the International Council should assess whether any project deliverables are technical in nature. If any are deemed technical, the Project Facilitator shall return to Step 1 of the Project Approval Process and follow the TSC Work Group Project Approval Process.
      • #1640 Definition of substantiveness and update of guidance documents - clarify responsibility belonging to ArB and request update?
    • Work Group Health review; follow up activities?
