(CNN) — A California court hearing concluded Friday with the family of Jahi McMath — a 13-year-old girl on a ventilator who has been declared dead by doctors — and a hospital agreeing on a protocol for the release of the girl to another facility.

The specifics of any such release — how she\’d be transferred, by and to whom, and at what time — continue to be discussed. So while Friday\’s California Superior Court hearing did signal apparent progress in the hot-button case, it does not represent a final agreement.

Earlier in this hearing, the judge asked attorneys for the McMath family and Children\’s Hospital Oakland to confer to attempt to settle the issue of what will happen with Jahi.

After this hearing broke, representatives for both the family and hospital headed to federal court.

There, a magistrate will oversee mandatory talks between representatives of the hospital and the family, CNN affiliate KTVU reported.

Both hearings occurred on the same day that the coroner for Alameda County issued a death certificate for Jahi.
