      4. Each Profile Name in the list is a link to a Profile Webpage.
      5. Keep the Domain Description short enough that the top of the Profile List is visible when you first go to the Domain Webpage.
      6. Feel free to group your profiles if you have a lot. Don't have to group. Group names are not Normative, just helpful.

      9. Since it's a fair bit of work, the Domain Page links on the Website may be to the Profile Pages on the Wiki at the initial deadline and updated later.
  • Most of the work will be in development of one-page profile summaries
  • Action: Domain Sponsors will be requested to work with their Planning Committee Co-chairs to develop ISO Domain Document and IHE Domain Webpage for their domain.
