- There is no "final" version of the Formats, which are clinical instruments; AHRQ publishes iterative versions which are updated periodically.
- This process allows nimble accommodation of: 1) changes in science, and 2) suggestions from users, and others, that improve the Formats.

- This collaborative process has itself been subject to public comment and is approved by OMB [the Office of Management and Budget].
