  1. Introduction of visitors (including declaration of interests)
  2. Agenda review and approval -
  3. Approve Minutes of 2014-06-16 TSC Call Agenda


  1. Approval items:
  2. Discussion topics:


  1. Review action items
    • Paul will edit and bring back updates to our naming conventions and DSTU release guidance.
    • 2585 Define list of machine-processable artifacts for membership benefit - Ken will follow up with Stan on who is the Marketing committee chair and the Board's intent with the list
    • Woody will craft a motion for the TSC position statement on new projects using R2B
  2. Approval items:
  3. Discussion topics:
    • Status of problem identification and response between HL7 and GS1 (P. Knapp)
      • J. Quinn suggests: 1 week: flag as yellow; 2 weeks: flag as red
    • 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.
    • WG Health – Impact on SD project approval
  4. 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
  5. Open Issues List


Minutes/Conclusions Reached:

  1. Status of problem identification and response between HL7 and GS1 (P. Knapp)
    • Paul: The role of the document was where to put UDI strings. This has been captured, and has remained largely unchanged since the fall.
    • Paul has requested the document be put into the next Harmonization.
    • Based on the calls from last week, the GS1 issues have not been resolved. Paul will send out an email with an update. The major issue is the GS1 and Coding issue.
    • What can the TSC do to assist?
      • Paul recommends if we reach out to anyone it would be the FDA (Leslie Tompkins)
  2. WG Health – Impact on SD project approval; See PBS Metrics Guidance for SD Co-Chairs
    • Melva: They're SD had two WGs that had issue
    • They did use the process, but feel that it needs to come to the SD earlier, as the current process just seems to be another roadblock for Project Approvals.
    • So it seems like the guidance is working, but needs to be looked at in advanced. We should also make a Work Group take action rather than just pointing out the WG Health is in trouble.
    • Perhaps add a new box on the PSS that has the WG state their WG Health, and puts the onus on the WG do the review. After further discussion, the TSC wasn't certain they wanted to do this. Instead, move the existing box to appear between the WG and SD approval dates.
    • Melva suggests that this might be a good topic for the Monday Night Co-Chair dinner.
  3. Help Desk Escalation process document (the step that involves engaging the Work Groups in answering the questions),
    • Ken is currently working with Dave Hamill and Diego on finalizing the document. The plan is to have it as an agenda item on the July 7 TSC call. He will send the document out prior to that so everyone can review it prior to the call and bring comments.

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

Next Steps

Actions (Include Owner, Action Item, and due date)
  • Dave - Within the PSS Template, move the WG Health Box between the WG and SD approval date boxes
  • Lorraine/Tony - Take the Conformance definition back to the ArB and compare it to what's in SAIF
