From HL7: A new ITS that makes it easier to implement Version 3 specifications and a US Realm.
From W3C: A binary XML that reduces the footprint of XML on the wire and an updated Schema specification that enables HL7 to build that new ITS.
From HITSP: A week or two off and some infrastructure to build better specifications.
From IHE: Actually, I think I've gotten that one already, a full slate of active leaders in PCC.
From ONC: Some forethought and an RFP to continue the standards harmonization process that includes some of the other streamlining of standardization that I've asked for.
From ISO and the US TAG: Some time to play in that sandbox.
From NIST: Open sourcing of validation tools.
From a book publisher: A contract.
From Congress: Health Reform
What I'm giving for Christmas:
To HL7: Some easy ballot comments to address.
To W3C: Feedback on that new Schema specification they have.
To HITSP: 25 hours a day.
To IHE: Antepartum Workflow Draft -- Really, I promise this time.
To NIST: Comments on testing tools.
To Congress: A new senator. It'll be a little late, but...
It's just a short list really, and I've been such a good boy...
