Standards Alignment – The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel will address the need for standards alignment internationally, focusing on the benefits to consumers and producers. Standards alignment is a topic that has been, and should continue to be, addressed at ICPHSO symposiums. But this panel will focus on examples of models that work (the Good), models that do not work (the bad) and models that are overly complex (the ugly).  Members will be provided with examples of standards alignment approaches, and information about a successful approach that can be used as a model for future work.
