Melva describes their interest in exploring other types of competencies for certification. Diego adds the affiliates have needs to offer some additional meaning to their certification. Calvin reiterates questions from last week's discussion, in the project's targeted outcomes in its relation to the existing certification.  Project needs to assess the needs for this type of certification in the marketplace, notes Patrick. The deliverables listed are categories of skills their definition and assessment adds Melva. Calvin asks about educational materials that would need to be developed, Melva notes that the definition of chores and certification program management on project objectives would have to cover that, but the timelines do also seem aggressive. Calvin's concern is that the development and launch are occurring simultaneously and it would be helpful to deliver first what is identified as needed and then subsequently develop materials and then launch it. Learning by doing and demonstration of ability to do something rather than answering a quiz is not part of this project notes Diego. It is more a policy view of Education to try to integrate a practical element into the education programs. Ravi asks if the term enhancement means the current education will be changed; the enhancement is a deliverable notes Melva. Ravi asks what is the cost aspect? Melva notes that budget implications would have to be reviewed as they go through.

It's not indicated what the changes are and they have balloted for comment repeatedly after their DSTU ballot in September 2010. There is concern that the repeated ballot for comment does not show progress. We need some representation to discuss these questions. '''Motion tabled'''.

#*Request for guidance on “EHR-S Function and Information Model, Release 2.1” intending to ballot under [http://www.hl7.org/special/Committees/projman/searchableProjectIndex.cfm?action=edit&ProjectNumber=688 Project Insight ID# 688]. This would be a revision of the “EHR-S Functional Model, Release 2” [http://gforge.hl7.org/gf/project/tsc/tracker/?action=TrackerItemEdit&tracker_item_id=1806&start=0 TSC Tracker # 1806].  Background at [http://gforge.hl7.org/gf/project/tsc/tracker/?action=TrackerItemEdit&tracker_item_id=2194 TSC Tracker # 2194]. EHR-S FM R1.1 is out for recirculation ballot still. ISO has finished their ballot of the incremental changes and we still must resolve a remaining negative. Don spoke with the cochairs, that EHR-S FM R2 with addition of information models and so consider this an incremental release to EHR S FM R2. R2 is expected to go to joint ballot this spring and not including the informational model piece in conjunction with the ISO ballot material. Pat reports Steve is not planning to ballot the 2.1 in advance of 2.0. R1.1 should be done with recirculation ballot in a week and a half, and then anticipate a publication request. We could then have a ballot of R2 this cycle - there is a tabled motion before the TSC to approve 2.0 as the Steering Division had already approved it contingent on R1.1 completing normative ballot reconciliation.
 +
#**'''Motion: '''Woody moves and Pat seconds the approval of project 551 for EHR-S FM R2.0. Pat notes that it is going to full JIC participation except for GS1 and not just ISO. Pat will update the scope statement to reflect the additional participation.
 +
#**'''Vote: ''' unanimously approved. Assuming the recirculation ballot is successful, we anticipate a request to publish R1.1 and R2 can go out this cycle.
 +
#*Harmonization Work Group Health Metric
 +
#**From MnM/Vocabulary WG in San Antonio: Workgroup health should only be based on committee harmonization representation if they would have "standing" as defined in the harmonization rules. See Austin's analysis email.
 +
#**Woody and MnM's concern is to bring in folks that are unfamiliar with the harmonization process that would unnecessarily complicate a difficult procedure to conduct harmonization over teleconference.  He notes there are perhaps 28 Work Groups that may participate routinely. Discussion ensued over implementation of the practice to support this WGH metric and the Strategic Initiative for modeling consistency. Jean adds for example that SOA's V3 project is not developing a new spec but only using existing specs. EHR as another example produces these profiles but not models. Austin asks what other WGH metric should be devised for those WGs not involved with Harmonization to support Strategic Initiatives, e.g. cross-artifact consistency. Woody notes that Harmonization has boiled down to a half-dozen deeply involved individuals and that may not be adequate representation.
