 ===== Issues ===== ===== Issues =====
-//​**Required** If there are any specific issues that the TSC should be aware of or specifically address, then please call them out. If not, then it is helpful to state something like: "There are no issues at this time." When in doubt, it is better to include information,​ concerns, or questions, rather than waiting.// 
  
-I would not say that there are any "issues."​+There are not any major issues ​with the group overall, however maintaining an international focus is a challenge because so much attention is paid to the US system around the worldWe continue to work on collaboration internal to our subgroups and other HL Working Groups and projects. We could be focusing more on recruiting but summer is hard for that and we are organizing some "protein"​ to attract more participants.
  
 ===== Overall Activity in the Past Quarter ===== ===== Overall Activity in the Past Quarter =====
-//​**Required** Discuss briefly how active the working group mailing lists and chat channels are. Are there regular meetings being held? What work products are being worked on? Reports should list the work products created since your last report, along with the creation date of each. Conversely, if activity is minimal, discuss how the working group plans to address that - whether through seeking out new contributors/​participants/​leaders or planning towards a move to an End of Life state.//

Subgroups ​have meetings on a similar cadence to organize their activity. The subgroups have also been scheduling ad-hoc meetings as necessary. Quick guesstimate says about a 3X increase in collaboration activity via meeting activity increase.
  
 +**Here'​s a sample of the Patient Subgroup'​s work:

 +At a high-level, reviewed our Connecting Patient Data Across Silos for Diagnostics and Treatment use case and how to engage with a build while not duplicating the work of another Hyperledger partner: Medicalchain
 +
 +Decided that the donor milk use case and POC is what the patient/​member subgroup would like to pursue as top priority, and to track to the Hyperledger Global Forum timeline for completion.

 +We have had a number ​of Workgroup members step up an take on organizing and moving things forward, collaborativelyI have spoken to at least one lead about continuing to evolve ​the group to ensure it's sustainability. As we have 3 subgroups, and I expect more to form, we'll continue to focus on this area. Healthcare can also encourage siloed thinking, and a habituation towards centralization. So attention to coaching opportunities is where some focus will remain.
