The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Value Set Authority Center (VSAC) has just launched VSAC Collaboration; a tool to support communication, knowledge management and document management by value set authors and stewards. VSAC Collaboration provides a central site where value set authors can post value sets for collaborative discussion. In that site, teams can share threaded discussions about the value sets, view recent value set expansions posted by site members, organize their value sets by usage and by team’s workflow needs, and receive activity and change notifications from VSAC.
VSAC Collaboration Tool training webinars and slides are available. Access to the VSAC and to the VSAC Collaboration Tool requires a free Unified Medical Language System® Metathesaurus License.
