Standards Impacting the Vocabulary and Common Data Elements Workspace
The VKC works side-by-side with the caBIG® VCDE Workspace. This workspace is both influenced by and has the potential to be influenced by a variety of external standards organizations. These organizations can take the form of official standards bodies or can be groups that establish de-facto community practices that effectively are treated as standards.
Please go to VCDE WS Standards Efforts for more information on the work being done by the workspace within the different standards and standards influencing bodies.
Information about these standards and standards influencing organizations that are associated with caBIG® efforts are listed below.
