The same review and approval process occurs prior to releasing a Public Comment Draft, a Reviewed Draft, or a Tested Draft. Just the criteria change.

Remember, this is the QA point. It doesn't have to be perfect. It does have to be good.

Review and Approval

  • Judge the document to be fit for the next phase (Technical Committee)
    • Schedule review meeting(s) as needed with open committee
    • Submit document 1 week before review meeting
    • Line-by-line review/walkthrough led by editor
    • Resolve questions/comments/clarifications
    • Vote (for Public Comment) or Ballot (for Reviewed or Tested) to approve the document as fit for the next phase.

Criteria for publishing Public Comment draft

  • All open issues have been clearly listed
  • Some groundwork projects may be underway
  • Candidate resolutions have been selected for most/all issues and drafted into the Profile
  • All major mechanisms and profile details are mostly clear/complete enough to implement
  • It is clear what is required for a system/organization to claim compliance with the Profile
  • Compliance requirements are sufficient to accomplish the goal of the profile

Criteria for publishing Reviewed draft

  • All open issues have been resolved
  • Few, if any, groundwork projects remain active
  • All major mechanisms and profile details are clear/complete enough to implement
  • All major mechanisms have been tested in one or more groundwork or referenced studies (although reasonable deviations from Profile details may exist)
  • It is clear what is required for a system/organization to claim compliance with the Profile
  • Compliance requirements are sufficient to accomplish the goal of the profile

Criteria for publishing Technically Confirmed draft

  • All major mechanisms and profile details have been tested as written
  • Groundwork projects are complete
  • All major mechanisms and profile details have been implemented by at least one system/site.
  • The claim of the profile has been accomplished in "controlled" conditions

Criteria for publishing Clinically Confirmed draft

  • All major mechanisms and profile details have been tested in the field as written
  • All major mechanisms and profile details have been "widely" implemented by multiple systems/sites
  • It is clear what is required for a system/organization to claim compliance with the Profile
  • The goal of the profile has been accomplished in clinical conditions
