He also discussed a comparison of the PEAK system from 2014 to 2015, as well as new universal applications related to PEAK.

Committee discussion ensued on the forthcoming electronic document management system upgrade, the PEAK mobile application, how CBMS has changed and improved over the past several years, and how it can be improved further.
