Thank you to everyone who attended the Closing Ceremony on September 29, 2014 and a special thanks to the entire community for their continuous support and commitment to the LCC Initiative over the past 3 years. The LCC Community made significant strides in helping to identify standards to support the exchange of heath care data across the health care continuum. We appreciate your dedication, tenacity and support. A huge round of applause to all of you from the S&I Framework LCC Leads and Support Team--we would not have accomplished so much without you all!
