  1. The dates in the PSS are old and with 99% of the content is done so there doesn't seem to be any opportunity for input.

    1. Yes, there is a history to this PSS.  It should have gone through the approval steps along time ago but the process was missed so we are voting on a retroactive approval.

  2. I agree with Jim McClay.  I think it unreasonable and not in compliance with the HL7 GOM to ask co-chairs to rubber stamp projects with no visibility to what has already been done.  I will be one of the first to agree that we need more straamlined processes in HL7. But approving a PSS with most of the deadlines for the project in the past does not fall under that streamlining. I find no documentation of the work in the GitHub link, only the FHIR IG. None of the other work referred to in the PSS appears to be there. If other work has been done on the projects then the documentation of that should be linked in the PSS. I also question the indication that the ballot type is STU to Normative.  for LHS WG

    1. Hi Russell,

      The documentation of our discussions, including recordings of our meetings, can be found at  We are in the process of moving these materials under the Patient Care projects in Confluence.  I'm happy to add that link to the PSS.

      We have also been updating Patient Care and Community-Based Care and Privacy with our progress for several months and our presentations are included in the meeting minutes for those groups.  Decisions made during the PACIO meetings were reviewed with our sponsoring and co-sponsoring work groups.

  3. Stephen Chu - on behalf of PCWG

    It is recognized and agreed the administrative paperwork surrounding this project do not currently meet HL7s best practice. There was a hiccup within HL7 working groups and this team regarding sponsorship/co-sponsorship.   The PCWG chairs are working with the team to remedy the HL7 administrative issues.  The team has been functioning through the project with acceptable practice of announced meetings etc.  The team did not recognize the importance of the working documents to be accessible to all of the HL7 community and is working quickly to resolve that issue.
