The group had the task of making recommendations for operationalizing the technical specifications in a medical school envoinment with varying degrees of technical sophistication, ranging from home grown systems to pen and paper. The group offered the following:

  1. UCSF will offer insights as to where data may be found, what would be involved in putting together an xml feed, and what conversations others would need to have to pull the data together.
  2. For the short term (ie the pilot), sending data using CSV (comma separated values) format is adequate.
  3. For the long term vision of implementation, creating a browser-based application that allows schools to input data would serve as a good bridge for those with fewer technical resources.
  4. The group recommended inviting system vendors to participate in specification development.
