Impacts to PAC
Expected to require new request for funding
Open for discussion
Catherine - hard for PAC to respond to EU centric letters as PAC is so US centric. Hard to turn.
Theresa is HL7 Norway member and serve at the PAC. She offered to be IC point of contact into PAC. A lot of nodding heads in approval of this proposal.
Stephen from CEN asked HL7 to share their issues on policy - as there might be similar issues in other SDOs.
The Netherlands approach PAC - needs advice and would love to see PAC be able to comment on international policies.
If PAC does not get more International participation, the US centric approach will continue.
Melva will add an item on Thursday for inquiry on anyone interested in joining PA
