      • Highlights from TSC review of our PSSs:

        1. Timelines will need to be adjusted as these have missed the deadlines to ballot in January
        2. Remove references to V3 Datatypes (3l says “yes”) - need to review the PSSs to see where V3 Datatypes are referenced
        3. Each references 80% content externally developed, except Skin and Wound assessment doesn’t note a percentage, just that the content was developed externally. All three will likely need to have the content reviewed by ARB, so the project teams will need to coordinate that with ARB cochairs, Lorraine Constable and Tony Julian. I have copied them on this email. - Need to change the PSSs to not be external content. - Susan
        4. Lab Model and Skin and Wound assessment are universal realm but use SNOMED CT – will need to be cautious.  - Okay
        5. Add repository URLs to section 3i if missing – should be using HL7 Github for where the repository resides.  Claude will help Nathan get the repository established.
