If you really want to know, Glen Marshall wrote an excellent overview of how Healthcare Standards become Healthcare Standards. It is a paper published by AHIMA, and it is entitled The Standards Value Chain. It provides an excellent overview of the process and result.
Just remember what Mark Victor Hansen has said:
“Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”
