  7. Open Issues List


  • Meeting minutes from last week approved via general consent
  • Karen here to touch base about the conformance testing project questions. No responses have been collected as of yet.
  • Lynn here to discuss the sunsetting process for standards, particularly CCOW. 5 year period has expired with ANSI. Request has been to republish without ANSI accreditation. Lynn is against that option; republishing without ANSI stamp has multiple issues. If it's being used, it should be reaffirmed. Pat does not disagree. Tony states that INM had a negative comment on the reaffirmation based on the fact that the standard is not being worked on and it's not best practice anymore in the industry. That's the reason they didn't want to go forward with an ANSI reaffirmation. INM submitted a request for withdrawal and they wanted to know if we could retain it on the site as some people still use it. Ken: We asked ARB and Project Services to draft up a process for sunset to include this issue. We don't want a third option to posting standards; it's either an ANSI standard or it's not. But what does it look like to retire a standard? That is the question we're addressing. Paul states that CCOW may no longer be the best practice but if it is the practice in use then it needs to be supported. Ken: So we may want to continue to allow access to sunsetted standards but we won't be doing anything to maintain them. Pat: the other part is that Paul thinks it should be maintained as an active standard if people are using it, even if there's not a new version. Wayne: we shouldn't give the impression that we're actively supporting it. Ken: resubmitting it for ANSI certification doesn't seem to make sense, and maintaining it on our website just says it's available for use. Jean: By withdrawing it, it doesn't appear in our normative package - they can go back to previous normative editions to get it. Lynn will join the group to work on the document.
  • Anne displays the location of the conformance testing project questions. People should respond as soon as possible.
  • Pat will follow up with the EC on the issue of endorsements.
  • Paul will send CGIT revised M&C to Anne and we'll send it out for e-vote
  • Melva will follow up with cochairs from anesthesia regarding moving into Healthcare Devices
  • Knowledge Artifact Authoring Environment Requirements Definition Project: Ken states that they may withdraw this project. He will follow up with the WG
  • Revised THEMES project
    • MOTION to accept revised THEMES project by Melva; second by Pat
    • VOTE: all in favor
  • Process for TSC ballot approval discussion - we will do an e-vote first as we did last time.
  • CQF on FHIR: Anne to add to e-vote. Did receive approval from both steering divisions. Melva to forward updated PSS to Anne.
