 Administrative  Lindsey Hoggle
  • Review of WGM agenda
  • CCRF List Serv compilation to one CIC list serv :
    • Some individuals are only interested in learning about one project and this would be an information overload for participants and we may lose some attendees
    • There is the alternative concern that some individuals are only on the CIC list serv and not on the CCRF list serv
    • Should we send an information email that alerts the individuals that there are specific list servs for certain projects
    • Attendees request that there be project specific list servs so that the information is not overload
    • Vote: CIC will have an administrative listserv that will provide high level and administrative information. Projects may elect to have project specific list servs. Moved : Anita Walden Second: Diana Ovelgoenne
      • Discussion: Question about if this is a HL7 requirement. Other WGM have multiple listservs. I.e. Orders and Observations There are so groups that have elected to hold listservs outside of HL7. i.e. Cancer Interoperability
      • Vote: 0 abstain 6 affirmative and 0 negative
  • Work Group Health Documents Power point
    • Mission and Charter : reviewed. Discussion around the requirement to have all co-chairs have or have held a clinical license in their domain specialty. This is a topic of discussions. This group was designed to bring the clinician view point/voice into HL7, however it was not started by a clinician (Ed Hammond). This group is designed to also reach out to the clinicians. Non-clinician groups can also be helpful to provide a bridge. The pediatric workgroup also is heavily clinician focused and opted to broaden the criteria for co-chair. The mission must be first updated before we can determine criteria for co-chairs.  Proposed that we exchange the verbiage on the make-up and percentage of clinicians be co-chairs. Group decided to step back and review the mission.
      • Mission: Discuss the mission of CIC. What are we doing for interoperability? CIC in the past looked at the clinical domain around health care, research and other secondary uses. CIC reached out to stakeholders from multiple domains so that there were more perspectives. Did this group coordinate the CMS/ONC response/comments from clinicians? Historically CIC has provided the voice of the clinicians for regulations and standards i.e 21st Cures Act. The CCRF project has provided feedback and the voice to the CMS/ONC proposed rule but this was not an overall CIC response. The review of PSS scope statements

 Cancer Interoperability
Project Facilitators did not attend and therefore this topic could not be covered
