Co-Chair Elections - January 2018

  • The following WGs are electing co-chairs this WGM:
    • Anesthesia
    • Attachments
    • Biomedical Research and Regulation
    • Clinical Genomics
    • Clinical Interoperability Council
    • Emergency Care
    • Health Care Devices
    • Patient Care
  • Election Process
    • Election Runner allows each HL7 member subscribed to the main Work Group listserv by Wednesday, January 24, to vote in the co-chair election, regardless of whether you attend the Working Group Meeting. If you cannot attend the WGM but wish to submit a vote for co-chair, do NOT submit an absentee ballot to Linda Jenkins. Any absentee ballots for the co-chair election submitted to Linda Jenkins will not be counted.
    • To be an eligible voter in the election you must be a member and subscribed to the main listserv via the same email that is in our membership database. Eligible voters will receive an email from Election Runner on Monday morning, January 29, with a link for accessing the co-chair election site. Election Runner assigns a unique key and ID to each eligible voter and accepts only one vote submission per link (so forwarding the link to someone who shouldn’t participate won’t work).
    • The election will be open 9 am Central Time on January 29 through 5 pm Pacific Time on Wednesday, January 31. You may submit your vote anytime during that timeframe.
    • Election results will be announced on Wednesday evening to all HL7 members per our usual procedure.

If they do not renew, the co-chairs of the appropriate work group will be notified that the position is up for interim election then regular election at the next WGM.

Project Scope Statement Votes

  • Attachments WG
    • Guidance on Implementation of Standard Electronic Attachments for Health Care Transitions (ACP)

Discussion: Attachment Collaboration Project - Collaboration among HL7, WEDI and X12 - presented by Durwin Day - This is an informative document rather than a white paper. White paper is reserved for papers produced under the auspices of a WG. Some of the dates need to be updated for approvals.

      • Motion to approve the PSS pending the WG submitting the PSS with approval date - Durwin Day seconded. None opposed, No abstensions, Motion carries, approved by the 13 WGs present
  • CIC WG
    • Common Clinical Registry Framework: Common Data Elements for Registries
      • CIC WG PSS
      • CIC presented the PSS - Update the Common Clinical Registry Framework DAM as an informative ballot with common data elements. Walter Suarez suggested that CQI might want to be a co-sponsor; CQI will need to review and vote on the PSS to be added as a co-sponsor. CIC also needs to update some of the scope with respect to providing a DAM Vs. an informative document. Also questioned is the universal domain. Most of the content is US-based. Some of the work is based on activities in Belgium, but it is still being constrained for the US realm. If it is US Realm specific, it will need to go through the US Realm Steering Committee before coming back to DESD for approval. The discussion was tabled pending update to the PSS and an eVote will be scheduled once the updated PPS is received.
  • Pharmacy WG
    • US Medications Implementation Guide Update – Prescription Drug Monitoring Program
      • PDMP Project
      • Melva Peters presented the PPS. It addresses mapping for the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) into the FHIR specification and putting it into the US Meds Implementation Guide. It is US Realm and may include some change requirements for US Core. The project will require approval by US Realm and FMG. Public Health requested consideration as a co-sponsor. Decision is tabled for subsequent consideration and eVote.
