Planned Agenda

    No new agenda items.

  2. Announcements
    Infrastructure and Messaging Work Group has approved a PSS to develop quality criteria for V2 and V2 implementation guides.  Do we want to cosponsor or just Interested Party?  Ted and Rob feel that Vocabulary should be a cosponsor of this project, although no one has time to spend on this.   Ted will contact Tony for the next step.
    The Montreal WGM is two weeks away.

    No one has made progress on their action items.

  4. UTG Update
    Lloyd has begun the processing of the latest resource upload with the FHIR tools.
    New resources uploaded April 10.
    We have gotten the first test export of Trifolla value sets and are looking to see what needs to be done to get the full set to be part of the demo in Montreal.
    One development cycle is scheduled to finish by the WGM to demonstrate full harmonization functionality.   Many dependencies on the extensions.  Updates have been done on the Confluence pages.  The creation of the UTG resources may be dependent upon in some way the IGPublisher work and the creation of the "UTG Implementation Guide".  Jess will put together the presentation for the ONC meeting in Montreal.  We need to make sure that for the demonstration has all of the volunteers needed to show it 'on deck'; Ted will reach out to Riki on demo participation.  Next UTG project call is April 30.
