The Process Committee facilitates the QIBA Coordinating Committees and their profiling activities by defining processes and tools to promote consistent quality work product.

  • Develop common Templates & Processes
  • Support & mentor adoption of above
  • Drive consistent content & format of Profiles
  • Support infrastructure for Committees


Current Work

  • Complete Claim Guidance document
  • Process/best practices for initial literature search around a new biomarker/profile
  • Round 6 proposal submitted to pursue this in more detail - revisit after June 16 call
  • Joe's intro email, current template and stage docs, QIBA Fact Sheet
  • Could use a "fresh eyes"/newcomer commentary
  • Support adoption of the updated Profile Template.
  • Sunset procedure for retiring Task Forces and Biomarker Committees that have completed their work.
  • Sketch up publication process for Official Docs (CC approval vote, send to RSNA Staff)
  • Write up Standard Approval Practices for committee documents
  • Quality check mechanism, voting mechanism
  • Start simple with this and add complexity only as needed.
  • Address relationship between wiki content (current, easy to update) and website content (authoritative, stable)
  • Likely RSNA staff will periodically mirror wiki content up onto the website; address this in publication process.
  • "How to develop a Profile" Guidance
  • Harmonize assessment procedures across profiles
  • Refine process for QIBA Conformance Statements
  • Should QIBA get into hosting the Conformance Statements on our site (and then we could link to them from the Profiles page which would be very handy)
  • Consider the RSNA Image Share Conformance Assessment Program and whether we should do something similar for QIBA
  • Process committee can think through the details of a process and confer with RSNA whether they would be interested
  • Propose conventions for Profile editions/versions
  • Methodology/Study Design guidance/requirements for achieving "Clinically Confirmed"
  • Propose policy/process to consider Prior Project completion when Steering Cmte reviews new Proposals from the same PI.
  • timing overlap of prior cycle completion period with new proposal period needs to be one considered.
  • possible solution would require final reports for prior COMPLETED funding cycles before considering a new project proposal
  • Propose change tracking process
  • Guidelines for Reference Implementations and commercial products in Profiles (underlying algorithm available, list all comers, non-commercial?, etc).
  • Guidelines for assessment procedures to vet SW in Profiles
  • Clarity QIBA Profile vs UPICT Protocol (Venn Diagram)
