Review draft report, including: • Mission • Terms of Reference • Deliverables • Definition • Architectural Framework • Requirements

Brief Summary

Mission – Agreed Terms of Reference – Should include the option to start from an existing model, rather than from scratch; Aim to quickly move from requirements to existing reference model (if possible); Requirements work can run in parallel to continue to allow requirements to be improved; Deliverables – Allowed for one or more UML class diagrams; Added reference to ADL; Will also present recommendations associated with the proposed CIMI Reference Model at the next face-to-face meeting (e.g. related terminology work that should be progressed); The strong inter-dependencies with the Clinical Modelling taskforce were discussed. Members – Summary of plan for additional members from Stan Definition – Agreed; Suggestion to include an explanation of why we are using a reference model (i.e. Motivation for reference model). Architectural Framework – Discussed, with overall agreement; more time requested for further review. CIMI Reference Model Requirements – Proposed purposes of the clinical models were extended; General agreement that realm-specific models should be able to both specialise and extend the international models; General agreement to exclude clinical content from reference model; This raised the importance of defining a set of reusable clinical ‘patterns’ (defined as constraints on the CIMI RM), which will form the basis of other more specific clinical models; Reviewed requirements to the end of ‘General Technical Requirements’.


• Linda Bird to: o draft a motivation for using a reference model and redistribute requirements document, as revised during meeting; o contact Cecil Lynch(Clinical Modelling Taskforce) regarding coordination between the two groups; o arrange creation of Wiki page for communication with wider group. • All taskforce members to review draft document and provide feedback and rewording as required;
