For all folks who have been participating in the PDDI Min Info Task 
Force I have  a couple of updates for you.

1) The current status of the Note is that it has just undergone a major 
revision and that I plan to sent it out for everyone to review by 
mid-next week. The work that was being conducted under the W3C Health 
Care and Life Sciences Interest Group. The W3C recently approved for the 
group to be moved to a Community Group. The work will continue as a 
Community Group Note under the new Semantic Web Health Care and Life 
Sciences Community Group (HCLS CG,  https://www.w3.org/community/hclscg/).

2) The other news is very good. I presented our work to the HL7 Clinical 
Decision Support (CDS) Workgroup (https://goo.gl/QqXWhF) in December and 
the WG thought that the PDDI use case was an excellent one for their 
work on sharable decision support using HL7 standards. As a result, we 
worked with the HL7 CDS and Pharmacy workgroup to develop the attached 
project description. The goal of the project will be to write an  
implementation guide on sharable PDDI decision support using the HL7 
FHIR and CDS Hooks standards. The near term goal of the project is to 
implement several of the PDDI descriptions that we worked on for our 
Note FHIR and CDS hooks.  We plan to bring this to the HL7 Connectathon 
that will take place this  September.

Bi-weekly project meetings are pending. If any of  you are interested in 
participating in the open HL7 CDS project - please reply with your 
preferred dates/times from the options shown below:

Mondays             Noon – 1:00 pm

Tuesdays             11:00 am – Noon  or 4:00 – 5:00 pm

Wednesdays      11 - 1

That is it for now.

kind regards,
