  10. Vocabulary WG 3-year plan update (chairs; from Montreal)
    May not need this anymore. The 3-year plan is no longer in the quality assessment. While not final, TSC is likely going to remove this need.

  11. Two types - internal and external FHIR Vocabulary content (Ted is missing, Rob Mcclure)
    The (Internal) versus (External) FHIR terminologies on the base terminologies page in the FHIR site is confusing. All these code systems are "internal" to HL7 and the difference was based on some sort of "model bound" quality or there was some issue with the way publishing works that led to the distinction evidenced by the two tabs. Some of these should be moved to Discussion requires Ted and Graham.
