Note:  Candidate text for the announcement of the survey follows:

In an effort to better position HL7 and the broader HIT community to meet the challenges of a distributed virtual workplace that has become even more prevalent given the impacts of COVID-19.  The HL7 Process Improvement Committee has developed the survey (link follows below) to collect best-practices from across the global HIT ecosystem, the results of which will be synthesized and published on the HL7 PIC Confluence page.  The aim is to identify approaches, techniques, and lessons-learned that can assist each of us in improving the efficacy of virtual collaboration.   

Given this aim, the survey is being distributed to multiple different standards bodies, and anyone engaged in this space is welcomed and encouraged to participate in the survey.  Feel free to distribute this to any communities or individuals you deem relevant.  On behalf of HL7, we thank you for your consideration and participation.  The survey is 10 questions and should take approximately 5 minutes to complete. 

You can find the survey at:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8326NY3

The survey will remain open until 15 August 2020.  Thanks in advance for your participation!
