Agenda Topics


  • Call to Order

Oct. 12, 2021 minutes : motion to approve MVZ/LM


BP/MVZ defer discussion of PEST status change till at least next WGM because of new positions in HL7 operations. That is the new Chief Standards Officer and the new Chief Implementation Officer will impact how PEST interacts with the larger HL7 community. We also believe that new TSC members are required to engage in the discussion of any changes to PEST work group status.

  • JIRA
JIRA has been updated.MVZ we are using JIRA at HL7 Netherlands for tracking purposes. Also managing requests for FHIR profiles in JIRA. (HL7 Netherlands)

  • Confluence

Confluence slowness was likely due to the last upgrade;

it should be resolved by now. All of the Atlassian products have been upgraded except for Crowd (which is used by HQ).

  • Website

Going forward working on a new website for HL7 Europe.

Certified Educators program coming in Feb. 2022 so working on that web page.

The new process is over on JIRA except for re-affirmations and withdrawals which are on Confluence.

This current ballot cycle is a hybrid one using the old ballot desktop and the new JIRA based balloting.

On the Dec. 14: review PBS metrics.

Set up WGM meeting details.

we are co-sponsoring project 1180.

MVZ  EHR toolingEHR WG is talking about moving from it's current tooling to the FHIR IG tooling.  The EHR tooling generates functional profiles but EHR profiles could reference FHIR profiles as needed. The upside it would eliminate another tool in the HL7 publishing toolkit.
