HL7 WGs are required to present the HL7 Code of Conduct & the HL7 Antitrust Statement at the beginning of each meeting:

HL7 Antitrust Policy: Professional Associations, such as HL7, which bring together competing entities are subject to strict scrutiny under applicable antitrust laws. HL7 recognizes that the antitrust laws were enacted to promote fairness in competition and, as such, supports laws against monopoly and restraints of trade and their enforcement. Each individual participating in HL7 meetings and conferences, regardless of venue, is responsible for knowing the contents of and adhering to the HL7 Antitrust Policy as stated in §05.01 of the Governance and Operations Manual (GOM).

HSSWG calls are recorded per WG approval during December 16, 2021 conference call unless an objection is sustained.

HSS WG Business

WGM admin meeting

Mohammad: We decided in the last WGM to not book a room for co-chair meeting on Thursday. This will consolidate all our meetings to Tuesday and Wednesday.

Michelle will not be able to attend. Courtney will consider travel for the shorter attendance.

Mohammad and Chris are planning to attend.

Mohammad: there is an all-co-chair meeting today on WGM+ and the planning for the next WGM.

WG Project Meetings

Mohammad: We are going to have a project call every week on Monday at 2pm ET. We need co-chair attendance to have quorum for votes.

Since there's been a lot of back and forth about the process, Mohammad has proposed to let the project team own the project page and WG own official meeting minutes and meeting organization.

Courtney suggested that we facilitate the calls to be more substantive and provide resources on the process so that can take place offline.

Person-centered Project

The team has been working offline on revising the proposal and incorporating the comments.

The team will use the project page on confluence as a placeholder for resources and discussions.
