Agenda Item

1Announcements 
  1. FHIR Tracker move to Jira - Update - still in development - look for email announcement about 1 week in advance of the change.
    1. Notification: For those who signed up for early ballot opening (i.e., off-cycle ballot) - HL7 FHIR® Implementation Guide: Payer Data Exchange (PDex) Payer Network, Release 1 - US Realm (Project 1489) - The ballot opened today for commenting (sign-up is closed).  Remember: Since HL7 expects to be transitioning FHIR tracking items JIRA during the ballot period, balloters are advised to use spreadsheets to submit their ballot comments.
    2. HL7 has now scheduled the migration of FHIR tracker items from GForge to JIRA for this coming weekend, November 15-17. We expect to be using JIRA exclusively for FHIR tracking tickets by Monday, Nov. 18.  

      1. To ensure that we migrate all Tracker items to JIRA, FHIR GForge Tracker will be locked to read-only at precisely 8pm EST on Friday, November 15 - no one will be able to enter or update FHIR tracker items in GForge after that time so we can ensure all content is migrated to JIRA.  

      2. For those of you who are new to JIRA, a set of brief webinars on the basics of using JIRA have been posted at https://confluence.hl7.org/display/HDH/JIRA+Tracking .  We believe you’ll find JIRA to be intuitive and natural, but we’ll be adding additional documentation and tips over time to this page to help improve your experience.  

  2. New DaVinci / HL7 Gaps in Care discussions: 

3. Cross Workgroups Project WG (now managing US Core balloting)

4. Consider canceling CQI call on November 29 (Thanksgiving weekend)
