What should I be working on this week?

Week of April 30th 2012

  • Review Multiple Affinity Domain assignement
  • Attend or view recording of the webex that will take place on Friday (TLS, Proxy, OrderManager) : See announcement on ihe-europe-2012 google group
  • Make sure every participants to connectathon is recorded in the page : See Gazelle Test Management : Registration -> Testing Session Participants. Person with no badge will not be able to enter the room. Person with no badge will not be able to have lunch !
    • We will invoice the extra participants later on.
  • In Gazelle Test Management please start and complete the no peer test that can be done ahead of the connectathon so that we can start verifying and validating them.
    • BIR / ID : Still some slots for verifying the test ahead of the connectathon (note that this single test (BIR_Image Display requires at least 4 hours for the verification).
    • MOD, RC, EC, CONTENT_CREATOR:  Please run the tests that asks you to create samples and enter them in Gazelle Test Management so that we can verify them.

Week of April 23rd 2012

  • Modalities : we invite all of you to review the two following files and to check that in our list of codes we have codes that match your modality type (MR, CT, MG...). This will ensure that the Order Fillers and Order Placers will have procedures that match your system capabilities ready for Bern.
  • BIR/ID : This week and next week we are performing webex sessions for evaluation of the test. Make sure that you have registered in the doodle for your systems (so far only one of your registered)
  • OID Assignement : Many systems need OIDs as part of their configuration (Patient ID Sources, XDS Source & Repositories, others...). This year, these are assigned in gazelle under menu Configuration/OIDs for Current Session.

Week of April 9th 2012

  • XDW : there is CP that will take into effect for the Bern CAT on that profile. The validation tool was updated accordingly. Please make sure to take it into account and revalidate your document already submitted in Gazelle for both Pre-CAT and CAT testing. Google Group on XDW is at : http://groups.google.com/group/ihe-xdw-implementors?hl=en
  • No Peer Test : many of the no peer test for the connectathon ask you to provide some samples. Please start providing them in the sample section of Gazelle. You can then start the test instance, indicate the permanent link into the test instance and we will start to validate your sample. This will save YOU and US a lot of time in Bern.
  • Proxy : We will use a proxy in Bern to capture the messages exchanged during testing. The use of the proxy is not required but strongly encouraged. Gabriel wrote a documentation of the tools that you will have in Bern, please read it : http://gazelle.ihe.net/content/proxy
  • Order Manager : Connectathon veterans might remember a tool called the RisMALL. In Bern we will use a tool call the "Order Manager" that replaces the RISMALL and allows test participants to create and manage orders for the profiles in the LAB and RAD domain. A documentation of that tool is available. Please read it  : http://gazelle.ihe.net/content/order-manager
  • We are planning webinars at the end of april and early may to exchange on this tools:
    • Gazelle usage during the Connectathon (1h) May 2nd at 10am CET
    • Proxy usage (1/2h) : May 3rd at 10am CET
    • Security tools usage (1/2h): May 3rd at 11am CET
    • Order Manager usage (1h): May 4th at 10am CET

Week of April 2nd 2012

  • Start working on your CARNET ATA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATA_Carnet)
  • Start returning samples needed for your systems and if you need to render samples provided by your partner please render them and provide snapshot where needed.
    • We want to perform as much conformance testing of your samples before the connectathon starts. The idea to save monitor time and do all the conformance testing remotly. This will give you a chance to fix the problem that will be found in your samples, before the event.
    • So please visit the page Connectathon->List of Samples and return the samples requested and render the samples available providing a snapshot of the rendering by your application. This will inform your peer that you have done it.
    • Visit the page Connectathon -> Connectathon and review the list of "No Peer" test needed for your systems. Some of these test ask you to provide a sample, when you have done it, provide the permanent link to the sample in the test instance, mark the test as completed. This will trigger an event,  telling us that we need to verify your test.
    • Test marked as verified before Bern, will save all of us a lot of valuable time there.
    • Samples example : ATNA Questionnaire, Sample Images, Sample CDA Documents,...
  • Continue registration of your participants to the event (15 companies have still not registered any participants yet). See the procedure here.
    • Please note that now adding extra participants will not give you extra tables (unless another organization drops participation and I have extra tables !)
  • Continue pre-CAT test log return (see details below)
  • Continue review of your configuration parameter (see details below)

Week of March 26th 2012

  • IMPORTANT/URGENT : Last chance to get extra tables at the Bern connectathon by registering participants (individuals) to the connectathon.
    • you have till Friday March 30th at 5 pm to register the participants following the procedure described here
    • each registered system includes  2 participants
    • each extra 2 registered participants at 600 Euros you will get an extra table (see mail sent to google group for more details).
  • Systems configuration have been initialized in Gazelle Test Management. So each of your systems have now configurations. Please review the configurations that have been assigned to you and edit them according to your needs. We have not yet assigned the OIDs. Will try to do it this week.
