Standard Drafts Update:
-BSR/RCST1.1:202x Systemization of Notifications Regarding Dental Patient Recall (DPR) completed 45-day BSR 8 public review on 9/21/2020. Holding off on consensus body vote at this time to work on the technical section of the draft.

-ERST1.1:202X The Dental Practice Medical Emergency Kit Design, Contents and location, and TDST1.1-202X The Usage of Teledentistry For Remote Prediagnostic Dental Care, drafts still under development-not ready for BSR submission for public review.

-Meetings going forward will be a Zoom meeting invite rather than the Zoom webinar. This allows for interested parties outside of the DSIDC to be able to actively participate in meetings.

-Dr. Cindy Perone has voluntarily stepped down from DSIDC due to her busy schedule leading to conflict with the DSIDC meetings at this time her seat will not be being replaced.

-ANSI/DSI DCNST1.1:2021 Verification and Displaying of Dental Patient Chart Notes (DCN)
-Bryan motioned to create a workgroup to discuss new additions to this Standard.
-Dave seconded motion and floor was open to discussion. No comments made directly about creating a workgroup for this standard.
-Bryan moved to vote on the creation of a new workgroup that will discuss additions and improvements to ANSI/DSI DCNST.
-No objection – vote pass unanimously

-DSI ODINST1.1:2021-Oral Dataset Interoperability Network (ODIN) – The Specification, Storage, Transmission, Retrieval and Processing of Vital Datasets In Oral Health Care – PINS submitted and published 7/7/21 – 30 day public review ended 8/8/21.
-After review with the ADA SCDI, it seems that there is quite a bit of overlap between this PINS and ADA 1084. Bryan reached out and spoke to Dr. Greg Zeller (Chair of the ADA SCDI) and while there is overlap, there are also some areas of implementation that DSI is likely going to want to address. Bryan is attending the ADA SCDI meetings all this week, so he will continue to get information, as will others at this meeting. As chair of this committee, Bryan believes it would be a good idea to hold off on making any changes, but we will likely be either revoking or modifying this PINS and Standard Draft in the new future, in the interest of collaboration and eliminating any potential foreseen duplication of Standards.
-Bryan motioned that we create a workgroup to discuss ODIN and how to proceed with this PINS submission, as well as explore if there are gaps that we would like to address in the current interoperability standard development that other organizations are working on.
-Motion was seconded by Dave and the floor was open to discussion. No comments or objections were made
-Bryan moved to vote on creation of workgroup to discuss ODIN
-No objection – vote pass unanimously

-Next DSIDC meeting is scheduled for December 2, 2021. (1st Thursday of every other month)

-Shawn Hall participated in a discussion about the need for technical standards in the dental industry. Recommended possible standard creation around laser for use of killing bacteria in perio pocket. Shawn and Bryan connect offline to discuss further.

-No further new business was brought up for discussion.
