PCC Profile Deprecation
From time to time IHE Profiles (and National Extensions) may need to be deprecated for one reason or another. PCC will follow general direction and guidance provided by IHE on the Evaluation of Published Profiles in addition to what is stated on the PCC Profile Deprecation Process page, which includes the details of the deprecation process as defined by the PCC committee.
Deprecation is a mechanism used to notify the community of intended removal/deletion/dropping of a Profile, National Extension, or other artifact. In order to deprecate a profile, an assessment must be performed to determine the community impact of the deprecation. If this assessment is not performed then there could be negative impact, causing disruption in interoperability implementations as vendors, policy-makers, and other stakeholders may decide to cease support for a profile based on deprecation status.
