Discussions and Decisions

  • There was broad agreement that we wish to move forward
  • Point was made that whilst current focus for projects going in now is XDS, the model used could be used for other protocols
  • First priority is to agree use cases - see Use Cases on this wiki
    • Liaison with PRSB to validate use cases is politically important
    • Patient portals are an important use case to consider - not just staff searches
    • There were differing views on the importance of being able to search for headings/content within documents - use cases are awaited
    • All are encouraged to add their uses cases directly into the page, which will provide "bottom up" classification - TB to assist in providing a "top down" view
  • Other comments can go into Comments
  • Doodle poll to be arranged to discuss future meetings - ideally at fortnightly intervals - available at
  • We aim to have guidance available in 12 weeks (end of August) - this will require considerable work by members between meetings.
