Working Groups

These groups are the place to really roll up your sleeves and get work done.

Working Groups will be made up of committed implementers and engaged stakeholders with broad representation. They will be led by project sponsors, SMEs and / or facilitators. Examples of working groups could be Communicable Diseases, Synoptic Reporting for Digital Imaging, or ePrescribing.

The output of these groups will have a direct impact to on-the-ground success of interoperability projects – either immediately or at a point in the future.

How Working Groups Are Formed

Working Groups can be formed in response to needs identified by the Clinical Interoperability Steering Committee. They can also be formed to support the goals of a Community. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
