  3. Approval items from last week's e-vote approved 5/0/0:
  4. Discussion topics:
    • US Realm discussion of DSTU Extension Request by the Structured Documents WG of SSD-SD for HL7 Implementation Guides for CDA Release 2: IHE Health Story Consolidation, DSTU Release 1.1 - US Realm at TSC Tracker 8678
      • Note: This IG has been cited in US regulation and must remain available for up to 5 years. The WG is requesting a waiver for a longer extension period which may require Board approval.
      • Next GOM update will include the following addition to section 13.02.07 on DSTUs: "The Executive Committee (EC) may, at its discretion, extend the viability of a DSTU for up to five years beyond the close of the trial use period."
      • In Tuesday's US Realm call, it was noted that some in the WG don't want to see the DSTU extended due to maintenance implications. Jonathan Coleman from ONC is checking on ONC's position be on a cited standard becoming a lapsed standard during which time the regulation is enforced.
  5. Reports: (attach written reports below from Steering Divisions et al.)
  6. Open Issues List


  • Meeting minutes accepted through general consent
  • Addition to agenda: SGB candidate update
    • Alexander Henket has declined to serve on SGB - was part of the list approved by TSC. Will be looking for replacement.
  • EST strategic plan and tooling strategy document: are there any questions/comments?
    • No concerns noted. Should the TSC endorse this and pass up to the Board? Should proceed with inventory to move to more detailed strategic level.
    • Lorraine: Tactical aspects will be worked on separate from strategic plan.
    • MOTION by Paul to accept strategic plan, and recommend that ARB/EST move forward with a funded project for obtaining a tooling inventory and that EST continue the development of a tactical plan. Second by Andy. Discussion: John Quinn describes potential OHT involvement. Paul: OHT wasn't part of the discussion item, but we can't do any of it without a strategic plan. Must include inventory of what we've got. Andy: It just depends if OHT should drive the process or we should. John: They should not drive the process. John will report on this to the EC today and to the Board next week. Paul: So we're should approve the overall direction, then pull together the information for an RFP to do the inventory.
    • VOTE: All in favor.
  • GOC proposal:
    • TSC is not currently approving normative publication.
    • MOTION by Freida that we accept the update. Second by John.
    • VOTE: all in favor
  • Discussion of DSTU Extension Request by the Structured Documents WG of SSD-SD for HL7 Implementation Guides for CDA Release 2: IHE Health Story Consolidation, DSTU Release 1.1 - US Realm at TSC Tracker 8678.
    • Ken reached out to Johnathan regarding what happens when a DSTU is superseded. He also noted to Johnathan the intent of DSTU becoming normative - wouldn't that be better than citing a DSTU? One issue Johnathan highlighted is when a DSTU gets done, it goes away, where normative documents exist in perpetuity. He wants to make sure that a path exists to get to the original DSTU. Lorraine notes that some product briefs include links.
    • Paul: when it goes normative, they could switch the reference unless there was a substantive change between DSTU and normative
    • Discussion over ways to word instructions to implementers that the cited DSTU may be changed

Call adjourned at 12:02 pm Eastern
