Collaborate on topics with ISO/TC215, the ISO Technical Committee (TC) on Health Informatics.

About

ISO/TC215 enables standardization in the field of health informatics to facilitate the capture, interchange and use of health related data, information and knowledge.

The ISO/TC215 community is structured through working groups that deliver standards in the following priority health infostructures and domains:

  • Architecture, Frameworks and Models (WG1)
  • Systems and Device Interoperability (WG2)
  • Semantic Content (WG3)
  • Security, Safety and Privacy (WG4)
  • Pharmacy and Medicines Business (WG6)
  • Safe, effective and secure health software and health IT systems, including those incorporating medical devices (JWG7)

Currently, TC215 standards development work addresses health and health informatics needs including:

  • Health information / data (definition, content, models, representation)
  • Requirements (medications, EHR’s, use case, security)
  • Semantic content representation (specifications, terminology resources, models, structure, competencies and content, big data)
  • Health data, software and systems safety and privacy (management of risk)
  • Pharmaceutical product information system safety, efficiency and interoperability (medicinal product identification, implementation guides)
  • Medical device interoperability
  • Standards sets

Standards sets are key new interoperability initiatives in the ISO and Standards Development Organization (SDO) communities, starting with a clinical imaging standard ‘bundle’ at ISO and supporting the Joint Initiative Council’s (JIC) patient summary standards set, all building from ISO/TC215 and other SDO base standards.

Canada is proud to have a thriving ISO TC215 Canadian Constituency and actively participates in ISO TC215 ballots and standards development, through this community and the Canadian Standards Mirror Committee of ISO TC215

To become a member of this community select Join Group in the Group Menu.

For more information on the Canadian Standards Mirror Committee of ISO TC215, contact Don Newsham, community leader.

If you have an idea for a community, working group or project that will drive interoperability forward, let us know! Send us your suggestions

Hi, I have found this interesting browsing tool on the following site, which allows for viewing documents before or instead of buying them. https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/ But I have questions on how to get to specific information. I have to admit, I am not too familiar with ISO naming convention where there are often many codes in the documents header. So far, I was able to find some documents but not others like those that are broken down in parts, like «part1». Did anyone use that browser? Are there some tips you could share? Thank you!

Collaborate on topics with ISO/TC215, the ISO Technical Committee (TC) on Health Informatics.
Having just returned from an excellent ISO/TC215 meeting where key standards were on the agenda, I thought I'd share some of the highlight headlines from the meeting. These include: - an updated framework for semantic content standards of TC215 (Working Group 3) - the Patient Summary Standards Set, (connect further with Elizabeth Keller on this mostly Canadian led work and associated JIC items) - an Aging Communities health informatics standards work, - the reference standards portfolio for Clinical Imaging (connect with Mike Nusbaum for more information) - healthcare applications of blockchain, - a new “omics” work item (transcriptome info) and an associated soon-to-come “omics standards” framework, - our Canadian led (Kelly Abrams and Bev Knight) standard on workforce roles in terminology and terminology services, - our Canadian work (Grant Gillis) on the framework of event data and reporting definitions for the safety of health software, and - new work on clinical decision support systems to be used in medication related processes (connect with Mary Raphael for more information) Those interested in joining the official TC215 Standards Mirror Committee, and receiving the regular meeting reports, along with voting and ballot privileges and potential delegate roles, please contact myself, Elizabeth Keller or Sari Schapira of Infoway with your membership interest.
