The Policy Working Group

Since go-live, the Carequality ecosystem has been expanding. There are also now a variety of potential Implementer organizations with use cases that were never envisioned. This WG is tasked with answering some of the policy questions that have naturally come from this growth.

Once this Working Group has weighed in on these issues, their conclusions will be submitted to the Carequality Steering Committee and Advisory Council to determine a path forward.
