      • Developed the PSS withdrawal document during the meeting
        • Moved by Floyd Eisenberg to accept the Withdraw PSS, Seconded by Angela Flanagan 
        • Discussion occurred surrounding the possibility that there may be organizations continuing to use eCQMs generated using the QDM-based HQMF standard; however, the workgroup does not see this as an issue as no new/updated eCQMs will be generated by CMS or The Joint Commission using this standard.

      • CQI will request to be an interested party
      • Linda Michelson is already CQI's Da Vinci "representative" and will be asked to report back to CQI on this project as well.
  • Discussion on merging CQI and CDS
    • Workgroup discussed some pros and cons of the possibility of merging the two workgroups.  The major pro is the probability of reduce meetings.  The major cons are the possibility of clinical decision support needs taking priority over quality measurement and how we would handle the fact that there would still need to be separate meetings (face-to-face and online) for CDS vs quality projects.
