Agreed to add a quarter to the CIC September WGM dedicated to mCODE. Schedule a room for about 30 people . Report out of project, update from the connect-a-thon and lessons learned from demo project with Intermountain Health

The connect-athon is being targeted for September. Intermountain is demoing this. Proposed to merge a connect-a-thon track with the Cancer Interoperability project. The groups with take this off-line and discuss this they will provide final details to the CIC list serv

Developing a communication plan: creating a confluence page, sending updates to the listserv and creating a touch point with CIC

CIMI requests to CICStan Hufnagel / Richard Esmond

Previous PSS with PAtient Care on Skin Care. These PSS were submitted as CIMI as the sponsor but TSC felt that CIC should be the sponsor. CIMI will take on the heavy lifting of this project.

Looking to partner with CIC on : Asking CIC to sponsors and CIMI to be co-sponsors

  1. Skin and Wound Assessment PSS- Podiatrists would like to be involved (EHR WG co-sponsor)
  2. Pain Assessment
    1. Susan Matney will facilitate both of these projects
      1. Are there drafts on these PSS? CIMI will provide updated PSS.
      2. Potentially more appropriate to partner with CIC
      3. Targeted January ballot cycle
  3. Vanguard PSS - central line
    1. they have thousands of row of data
    2. Do they have funding?
    3. Kevin Baskin will facilitate this project. He's not a member of HL7. Stan Hufnagle will take the role as the facilitator of this project and work with Kevin to become a HL7 member.
