ISO/TC215/WG2 työsuunnitelma Point-of-Care laitteille arvioitavana

ISO/TC215.n työsuunnitelmaa koskien tehohoidon ym. potilaan vierellä olevien laitteiden tiedonsiirron standardointia laaditaan parhaillaan. IEEE 1073:n puheenjohtaja Todd Cooper on lähettänyt jakeluun työsuunnitelman raakaversion, jotta sitä voitaisiin kommentoida ja korjata ennen päätöksentekoa Lontoon ISO/TC215-kokouksessa elokuun lopussa 2001. Suomalaiset organisaatiot voivat myös esittää asiasta kommentteja joko suoraan Todd Cooperille, STAKESiin ISO/TC215:n viralliseen Suomen seurantaelimeen tai allekirjoittaneelle. Työsuunnitelma löytyy osoitteesta  http://www.cs.tut.fi/~varri/tc251/mdcplan2.pdf . Ohessa vielä Cooperin saatesanat työsuunnitelman arviointiin (tekstissä olevat linkkilisäykset ovat allekirjoittaneen).



POC MDC Aficionados,
 
Attached is a PDF with a proposed editorial work plan.  This is derived from discussions within the CEN TC251 WGIV, IEEE 1073, and ISO TC215 WG2 committees, as well as various discussions between group leaders and key contributors.
 
PLEASE REVIEW THE PLAN AND RESPOND EITHER WITH APPROVAL OR DISAPPROVAL/COMMENTS ASAP.
 
Based on the responses, I will submit project requests and changes to the IEEE.  Now is the time to speak up and voice your opinions. We don't want to jump through all the administrative hoops only to find that there were major considerations not taken into account.
 
Also, if there is any project in which you want to participate, please let me know, and I'll make sure your name is added to the committee list. When then NWIPs are submitted for approval, there will be another opportunity for national nomination as an expert to the working group.
 
Based on recent discussions, I made two key changes:
 
(1) In order to ensure that we retain the highest utilization of the document designation 'space' (i.e., -XYYZZ), most all non F & O standards require a ZZ number.  In other words, instead of the Application Profile Base Standard being -20100, it is -20101.  The profiles are -20201 and -20202.
 
(2) Some structure was added to the application profiles area.  This was to ensure that there is plenty of room for growth in the future.  As it is, the -201zz is for 'base' related standards, -202zz for profiles, and -203zz for optional packages.  If additional profiles are required in the future (e.g., to support internet-based applications, these can be added as -2YYzz documents.
 
Clearly, though, both of these are open for debate...
 
Finally, there are some documents that are not directly addressed by this plan.  For example, where does the FEF standard fit (my assumption is that it would be in the -2xxyy series), or where will the POCT standard go?  Should it be a non-11073 number?  Should it have its own dash number (e.g., 11073-8YYZZ)?
 
Any feedback in these or other areas is greatly appreciated!
 
We are looking forward to some productive meetings in London at the end of the month (8/2001), and hope to have this plan approved by that date.
