Introductions and Approval of Minutes (info/action: HEMAtt.1)
Chair Peppers welcomed members and attendees, and called for approval of the Subcommittee’s April 25, 2011 meeting minutes.
ACTION: Diane Lovell requested a correction to the minutes (removing Rocky King as attendee) and moved to accept the minutes post-correction. Chair Peppers carried the motion, which passed unanimously.
Research and Updates on Health Engagement Model (info/discussion: HEMAtts.2/2A/2B/2C)
 Administrator Kapowich updated the Subcommittee on research completed on biometric costs and reported on other entities’ in-place HEM models, including Intel, Denise Honzel and Dr. Kothari Pranav, and HPN.
Deputy Administrator Loretz shared current benefits v. Benefits Scenario A, as well as current benefits v. Benefits Scenario B.
Administrator Kapowich continued her update, sharing recent discussions about HEM with the DOJ, although there was nothing definitive available at this time.
Timeline (info/discussion)
Administrator Kapowich discussed need for longer future meetings to enable the Subcommittee more time to discuss lengthier materials, especially from Kaiser.
Next Steps / Schedule of Meetings (info/discussion)
We need to have a sequence of decisions or steps to walk through in the HEM meetings. We then would take recommendations to the full Board for decisions and preparations going forward for the HEM. Those would form the foundation of next HEM meeting. Administrator Kapowich suggested that HEM should start up on Jan. 1, 2012. She also mentioned the need for a penalty process, including at what stage to levy such, as well as development of logistics for addressing privacy concerns.
