Work group status

Discussion of status of PEST: BP over the last 2 to 3 years the calls have become routinely characterized as HQ staff reporting updating the PEST group with information about updates to HL7 infrastructure.

Melva: What should this work group be doing?

BP: Historically, electronic services was created to advise HL7 move to more modern infrastructure supporting the HL7 community and work groups.

This was largely accomplished during Wayne's tenure as CTO with the move to Confluence, Jira and the Amazon platform.

DH: EST was the liaison between HQ and the community. Wayne took on the role of giving technical direction to HQ. He also developed a number of communication channels to the larger community.

Melva: There needs to be some sort of community input and EST could serve as an advisory body.

Jean : An advisory group or a TSC committee will likely be helpful; highlighting a group that provide community input on Electronic Services and Tooling issues and website issues.

Melva: Having a testing group would be useful.

Melva: We need to speak with Dan about forming an advisory committee then EST could change it's status.

BP: In many ways, EST has succeeded in it's initial charter and accomplished it's mission. Time to move on.

1) EST co-chairs speak with Dan Vreeman.

2) Then put in the appropriate paper work.

Next call: April 12.
