  • JIRA

JIRA harmonization process using Bitbucket as the terminology store. The workflow will interact with Bitbucket. The merger request will be done between JIRA and Bitbucket. The completion will be pushed to Git.

Will be used for future cycles, not the current cycle.

Bitbucket is usable with JIRA prod as well and can be used for other things as well.

Not sure what those other things might be just yet for Bitbucket.

  • Confluence

Doing work for the gravity project. Confiforms. New FHIR forms hosted by patient care. 156 new users today in Confluence and JIRA for a review feedback process that they are doing right now.

Brian feedback on Confluence - ITS was asked to use a solution that had inline commenting that was not very intuitive. A comment on a comment.

NOTE: Official comments need to be documented in the JIRA workflow.

  • CDA, V2

Effort to move C-CDA onto the FHIR platform.

There is overlap between CDA and FHIR participants. As well, there are efforts to move CDA to the FHIR publishing model, so there is something to moving CDA to the chat.FHIR. Lynn prefers to keep C-CDA on the existing channels.

As for V2, the comment was that V2 folks prefer to use other forums.

Brian Pech
  • ballot process

Wayne posted a message about the ballot process. 

There is a requirements document for a new system from Jean Duteau and Lorraine that captures the requirements for a new system that has the functionality of the old. 

ColdFusion platform currently. Would be better not to enhance existing platform.

Brian Pech will ask Wayne about sharing the document.
