PSS-1783 - Getting issue details... STATUS SMART Health Cards: Vaccination & Testing Implementation Guide 

Today's Update:

block vote: motion made to be interested parties on both of these (1788 & 1783) - Keith/Mark abstain: 0, oppose: 0, approval: 6. 

Past Update:

CIC agreed to co-sponsor PSS-1725 . Russell Leftwich reminded us to set our level of involvement when the PSS is distributed.

EMS Patient Care Report - expiration date imminent. Placing reaffirmation on May Ballot. This is a lesson for us to monitor and reaffirm ANSI specification

Creation of Project Proposal

Today's Update: CIC as Sponsor needs to create a Project Proposal. 

Motion made to accept the proposal and submit for QC review: Marti Velezis/2nd Keith Boone. abstian = 0, oppose = 0, approve = 9

Past Update:

Lindsey Hoggle informed us there is a link this on the sponsored projects area of the CIC Confluence site. We reviewed and discussed the new project proposal form on the Projects Proposal Space on Confluence. Completed forms are provided for comment for 2 weeks. This then becomes PSS which is circulated for voting.

Noted project proposal form does not contain facilitators.

Keith W. Boone will coordinate drafting the PSS with Jimmy Tcheng. The links on left are funding the effort. The project will be general and not disease specific. Avoid an IG focused on a specific disease registry. Develop a standard for creating a registry specification.

DSTU due in 1.5 years.

mCODE Ballot VotemCODE STU2 Ballot Approval

Today's Update:

Work of the last 8 months is ready to go to ballot for May.  Motion made to advance this IG through the process as the ballot calendar needs it. Will look at it again at our April 8th meeting for any further approvals needed.  Marti/Mark  abstain=0, oppose = 0, approve = 8.

will put on the calendar for April 8 for final thumbs up towards ballot.
