  • He has a spreadsheet for tracking this.

Tracy’s work load

Decision Points:

Mapping tool(s)

Discussion Points:

  • Agenda for the kick-off meeting on the requirements for the mapping tool(s): What we have from previous years (Kim, Mayo team, Rob’s scripts…), Demo (Kim?)
  • Rob suggested that there may be two parts to this mapping:
    • Matching (LexEVS?) and Curation
  • Lori suggested there will be requests for mapping to NCIt and other terminologies (will need Meta for other terminologies).
  • Lori also suggested the mapping tool should be able to handle different spellings of the same word (such as British spelling) and synonyms (ex. stomach cancer and the synonyms of this)
  • This mapping tool will hopefully decrease the manual load for the editor's work.
  • We will need semantic mapping.
  • Kim gave a demo of his mapping tool.

Decision Points:

  • Lori will follow up with Lyuba about the kickoff meeting.
Value Set Definitions - REST services not working

Discussion Points:

  • Update from Scott on DB on DEV
    • The load has the updates from our fix.  DB looks OK.  We will need to determine if there is an API fix necessary or if it's an additional loader fix.
    • The namespaces and coding scheme relationship isn't connected how we expected.
    • This should be just a lexevs REST API issue.

Decision Points:

  • Scott to create a JIRA item to investigate/fix this issue.
