    • BAM review (Tony)
    • Review of definition of 'implementation guide' and 'conformance'
      • Final Definitions
        • Implementation Guide
          An implementation guide is often created to organize a collection of conformance profiles, functional requirement specifications, or templates for specifying a set of related interactions described in a use case or use cases. Implementation guides typically describe broader conformance requirements such as application behavior. Such requirements may include how a set of interactions (messages, documents, etc.) are to be used to enact certain application functionality among applications (actors).
        • Conformance
          Conformance is defined as the fulfillment of a product, process, or service of specified requirements [ISO-17000, OASIS]. The concept of conformance is essential to any standard for providing an objective measure of how closely implementations satisfy the requirements defined in the standard.
    • Review of action item to define relationship between help desk and WG cochairs
    • WG Health – Impact on SD project approval
    • Determine the next 2-4 profiles for Conformance Testing (candidate topics: LRI, CDA R2, EHR-S FM, EHR-S FPs).
  6. Reports: (attach written reports below from Steering Divisions et al.)
    • TRAC:
      • Would measurements from before and after the changed process to disallow a single check box to enroll in all of the ballots be meaningful for ballot quality assessment?
      • TRAC report/recommendation on governance metric for project scope statements submitted late for deadline
    • Co-chair deadline awareness
  7. Open Issues List


Minutes/Conclusions Reached:


  • Project Approval request of Provenance for Clinical Document Architecture (CDA R2) Documents Implementation Guide for CBCC WG of DESD at Project Insight # 1093 and TSC Tracker #3314
    • The TSC's concern was regarding Harmonization.
    • Johnathan Coleman presented the PSS for review.
    • Struc Docs heard that the DESD discouraged CBCC from adding Structured Docs as a co-sponsor.
    • DESD reps on the TSC call indicated that was not the case
    • Austin and Woody indicated that Structured Docs is interested in being a cosponsor. Structured Docs has already reviewed the PSS and is fine with it.
    • CBCC will discuss on their next call to add Structured Docs as a cosponsor.
    • CBCC has discussed the PSS with the Security WG, and they will continue those discussions in case Security wants to be added as a co-sponsor
    • MOTION by P. Van Dyke: TSC to approve the PSS contingent upon adding Structured Docs as a cosponsor. Unanimously approved.
    • ACTION: J. Coleman will submit an updated PSS after the CBCC call discusses adding Structured Docs as a cosponsor.
  • BAM review (Tony)
    • Tony presented an overview of the BAM Review Use Case Diagram
    • ACTION: Tony will send out a link to the documents
    • Regarding Product Families, a question was posed if they've all been developed.
    • Austin indicated that the approach will be to create one Product Family at a time.
    • Next Steps:
      • The ArB will provide the TSC the full document for review/approval.
      • Also, the TSC can identify where 'holes' are in the process and what the ArB should attack next.
      • Ken's concern is that until Product Lines/Product Families are defined, he's not sure the TSC can provide much direction.
      • Melva asked who is on that task force. Ken mentioned that the task force has been meeting, but meeting sporadically at best due to bandwidth of the leaders.
    • TSC did send out the conformance testing survey

Please don't forget to hang up from the conference call (VOIP users)
