Review CQL Normative Draft/Approve for Ballot

Review changes to CQL for normative. 

Aggregate queries. 

Question about use of v1.5, why not normative?  This is version control Release 1 for tooling and translator versions.  

Changes to this version were minimal.  Updates to operators.  Added 'Long' Type to system defined types.  

V5 version of the translator supports these types and has been tested.  

There is no provision for a long quantity, will convert to a decimal.  

Motion to approve CQL spec and submit for publication- Chris Mosel/Rob Samples: 15/0/2

Review FHIR-Based Quality Reporting White Paper

CQI is balloting a FHIR White Paper.  It was sent to the CQI listserve.  Any interest in CDS reviewing content.  Hearing none, skip this topic.  

CDS Hooks Patient View Ballot Reconciliation

Call for issues from Isaac.  Request to discuss how to handle user.

FHIR-25760: Guiding Principles for DaVinci IGs. Discussed overview of issue, suggestion that this comment is not persuasive.  However, DaVinci principles seem relevant.   Suggestion to adopt applicable principles and add to specification.  CDS specification already covers many of the principles (i.e. legal terms).  Document is confidential and cannot be referenced by an open specification.  Disposition updated, awaiting feedback from commenter.  

May WGM Cancelled

Ballot will proceed as planned

FMG is preparing plans for a virtual connectathon

Discuss plans for ballot reconciliation

Intent is for ballot to proceed as planned.  FMG is preparing a virtual connectathon.  Need to discuss plans for ballot reconciliation.  Should we block off time during that WGM time for this review?  Begin planning for Ad-hoc calls for joint meetings with other workgroups.  Will table until next week (review schedule, determine joint sessions)
