Prospective objectives for the Open Referral summit –
Affirm and refine Open Referral’s vision, strategy, and process:
Consider challenges of current sustainability model, and other opportunities.
Consider neighboring problems, such as "personal information exchange." (Should Open Referral's scope expand to address actual referral protocols?)
Address governance questions of localization, specialization, and federation.
Clarify framework for participation (roles) and decision-making to maximize opportunities for participation, contribution, and inclusion as we scale.
Set priorities for progress on standardization: how should our standards and related tools evolve, what would facilitate their adoption? What does our community need?
Implementation assessment: what’s working, challenges, how can we help?
Strategies for monitoring + compliance of vendors and info intermediaries
Prioritize and specify features of related tools such as visual aids, sample data, transformer and validator, developer portal.
Review and Gather Feedback on current HSDS 2.1 development
Presentation on merging US and UK work into a single spec with core, extended + application profiles for localization and domain specialization
Gather feedback and inform roadmap for spec upgrade
Prioritize future development of HSDS/A:

Assess needs/opportunities to develop resource data supply chain infrastructure.
Resource data management tools:
quality measures/improvement, verification workflow, etc
Data federation through multi-lateral resource data exchange
