  • Publishing

Lynn - The FHIR publication process is still under construction. Some non FHIR published FHIR based ballots use their own tooling, for example, CQL.

Working with Grahame on how to refine this.

V2+ ballot site tooling

The contents of V2.9 have been converted to FHIR resources so you can use FHIR technology. It is not done using the FHIR publisher but their own tooling and rendering it to look like FHIR specification.

The essential thing is that the V2 specification is maintained in FHIR resources moving away from the historical chapter centered content.

The hope is that the FHIR community will find using V2.x easier.
