Change value set ownership between VSAC authoring groups

Both your current VSAC group members and the future owners of your value set must agree in advance. Learn more...

Contact value set stewards directly for questions and feedback
Sometimes you may have questions about the content, purpose or usage of a value set that only the steward can answer. You may wonder when a value set steward intends to update their value set. Select the Contact icon within the value set details of any published value set. For draft value setsinfo-icon in the Authoring tool, select the Contact Steward link in the left side bar.

Remove all codes from a new version of your value set
In some cases, you may wish to exclude all your value set's current codes so that you can easily replace your code list with a different list of codes, perhaps from a different terminology code systeminfo-icon, that will serve the same purpose. The original intent and usage of your value set should always be preserved.
