Public Comment on QIBA Profiles

All QIBA technical documents (Profiles, Protocols) are posted for Public Comment to ensure stakeholder representation, transparency and quality review. All documents are posted via the QIBA WIKI and announced to a broad e-mail distribution list. QIBA Profiles are posted for public review for a minimum of 30 days before being considered finalized for trial implementation.

The Public Comment Phase of the development of each QIBA Profile allows interested people to provide input on the Profiles, the scenarios and use cases they address, the technologies proposed and other details. In particular, vendors who will implement the Profiles and members of the healthcare community who will use the Profiles are encouraged to review and comment.

  • Review the documents listed in the Public Comment WIKI page
  • Note the deadline listed next to each Profile
  • Submit your comments via the comment form or direct e-mail to (Joe Koudelik)

The QIBA Technical Committees who develop QIBA Profiles will consider all comments submitted in the specified public comment period, and where appropriate, respond to comments. Please see below for more detailed instructions for submitting comments.
