1. Development of resource proposal for DeviceAlert resource
  2. Consider:
    1. ECRI?! Get comments 
    2. Reaching out to alert distribution vendors and experts on usage of IHE ACM and other (proprietary) alert distribution modes (e.g. Monroe Pattillo, Rob Wilder)
    3. Study results of SDPi meetings on the subject, consult experts (e.g. Ken Fuchs, Peter Kranich, Todd)
    4. Differentiate use cases in relation to FHIR
    5. Collating formal requirements for use cases
      1. Relevant standards: alarms, alarm distribution systems: definitions and requirements
    6. Model use cases:
      1. alert entities and attributes
      2. actors
      3. goals and requirements
    7. Writing the proposal
      1. possibilities of using existing FHIR resources and their advantages and disadvantages
      2. need for matching resource content to particular requirements of device alerts
      3. use cases and possible modes of FHIR usage
    8. gather draft materials for IG
