  • Provide a forum to solicit and capture concerns, comments, and update requests from public health professionals as well as vendors
  • Oversee the coordination and development of an updated version of the guide derived from  community comments
  • Shepherd the Implementation Guide through the HL7 balloting process from February 2018 through May 2018 process
