Evolution of Specification

The Pan-Canadian Patient Summary project leverages an iterative, consensus-driven, version-based approach for publishing specification content. For more information on the PS-CA Specifications release cycle, readers should review the Pan-Canadian Interoperability PS-CA Release Information page.

This specification is being published in draft-for-review form to allow for multiple cycles of stakeholder review, validation, and feedback to refine and shape the constraints put forth in the PS-CA Version 1.0 Trial Implementation Guide.

Refinement Process for PS-CA Version 1.0

FHIR® Profiling Versioning Process

As this is currently a working specification that is being updated as feedback is acquired from various engagement activities , the profiles use a versioning system to help implementers understand their development status prior to the formal release of v1.0.0 PS-CA specification for trial use.
