Health Level Seven International® invites you to take part in the early ballot openings for balloting HL7 candidate standards and documents for the upcoming February 2020 ballot cycle.
The candidate standards and other documents described in this announcement are balloting prior to HL7's February 2020 Working Group Meeting (WGM). Comments received from consensus group members will be addressed at that WGM running February 2-7, 2020 in Sydney NSW Australia.
Since we expect to be transitioning FHIR tracking items JIRA during the ballot period, balloters are advised to use spreadsheets to submit their ballot comments.
