Meeting Discussion – Ground rules This meeting is really a demonstration of the RCMT content to facilitate online discussions. In order to cover 100 Notifiable Conditions within next 3 months, we are planning to do RCMT Demo for 10 minutes and 5 minutes for questions per condition. Since CDC Program Lab SME and Epidemiologist are available, we prefer the questions related to RCMT content development (e.g. Lab Tests, Organism, Lab Result – titer, threshold,..). Implementation and Informatics aspect of RCMT can be discussed via phConnect or e-mail.
Focus of the Weekly Meetings RCMT Content Development 1.Lab Diagnostic Information a)Types of lab tests performed to detect a reportable condition b)Organisms or Agents associated with a reportable condition 2.Lab Criteria - CSTE Position Statement & NNDSS Case Definition. 3.Resources or links related to a reportable condition. 4.Demonstration of Standardized Lab Vocabulary associated with a reportable condition a)LOINC – Condition Specific Lab Tests b)SNOMED CT – Lab Test Results (Organism) 5.Questions for CDC Lab SME or Epidemiologist 6.RCMT phConnect online discussions
RCMT Content Development & Review Process 1)RCMT Planning Team – Develops RCMT Workbook with standard lab vocabulary and useful web site links. 2)Review the lab tests and criteria with CDC program Lab SME & Epidemiologist. 3)Demonstrate the RCMT Workbook on Thursday Meetings 4)Continue Online Discussions – phConnect / E-mail 5)RCMT planning team and ELR Standards Workgroup will address the questions on phConnect / E-mail. 6)Follow-up with CDC program, if needed 7)Distribute the first version of RCMT – June 30 th, 2011 via CDC Vocabulary Server (PHIN VADS) 8)Maintain the RCMT – Ongoing process
