Discussing future call schedule; may retain old time slots for Tooling. Expecting requirements from HL7 Terminology Authority (HTA) re: Value Set requirements and International Health Terminology Standards Development Organisation (IHTSDO). Also working with new HL7 staff.

      • Future IMC Projects and Activities
        • How to create Standards Collaborative Organizations in Africa?
        • Could we propose that HIMSS host a Summit in one of the four quadrants in Africa?
