The HL7 RIMBAA  (RIM Based Application Architecture) work group will be 
having an all day out of cycle meeting on Nov 20th at the Kaiser 
Permanente Pleasanton California Technology Camput at 

4460 Hacienda Dr. A 4073
 Pleasanton, CA 94588

The meeting registration will be free.
Pleasanton is about 50 minutes BART ride away from downtown San Francisco.

We have a place holder wiki page which will be updated here.


Our focus is implementers, not standards makers.  We have been branching 
out away form purely RIM models.  Most of the implementers use a 
combination of OO model (the RIM) and vocab (sometimes SNOMED) with is a 

We have never had anyone speak who uses RDF.  There is a lot of confusion 
and controversy over how to mix the Open World (Intensional) part of the 
model with the Closed World (OO RIM) part of the model.
At Kaiser we have simple way that's worked for ages.  We limit the SNOMED 
codes to the "what" part of the model, and we use the OO for the "who when 
where" etc.

This is not only an invitation to members of HCLS to attend, but also a 
request if anyone would be able to give a talk or demo of a clinical model 
implementation that uses RDF or other "semantic web" technologies.

Let Andy, Rene and I know if you can attend, and better yet, if you can 
speak about clinical models using semantic web technologies like RDF in 
combination with OO and SNOMED.
