The terms defined in this extension may be considered moderately stable, but some changes are still likely (including renaming and restructuring) through ongoing community collaboration. Organizations using this data are encouraged to join the community discussions linked here, and share their usage scenarios to help improve the schemas.

The medical vocabulary was originally created in collaboration with WikiDoc and others. Recent improvements including the migration into the health-lifesci extension has been led by the Healthcare Schema (schemed) community group at W3C. The health-lifesci extension is available for other collaborative extensions in topics centred on healthcare, medicine and the lifesciences (e.g. see also Bioschemas, and the pending proposals for describing US healthcare insurance networks).
