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

The ISO community will be hosting a Webinar on "Bundling Standards for Interoperability – ISO’s new Reference Standards Portfolio for Clinical Imaging" - October 26th 12:00-1:00pm ET. As the requirements for interoperability of healthcare information matures, so must the standards that support them. ISO has responded with the creation of a “bundle” of standards and artifacts that together allow technical, semantic and functional interoperability to directly support clinical workflow. The first of these “bundles”, known as a Reference Standards Portfolio (RSP), is currently being developed for Clinical Imaging. This webinar will introduce the RSP concepts, review how these will better serve the digital health community, and examine how Clinical Imaging can benefit from a more comprehensive set of normative specifications. For more details and to add the meeting to your calendar, please see our .... Cheers, Sari B)
Dear ISO community members: The Joint Initiative Council has done some great work on a Patient Summary Standards Set that is now available for public review and comment. My original forum posting with the links to the documents can be found here: https://infocentral.infoway-inforoute.ca/en/forum/220-snomed-ct/1796-sdos-seeking-feedback-patient-summary-standards-set-october-27-2017#3100 Feedback is due to Jane Millar of SNOMED International on Oct 27, 2017. Thank you. Regards, Andrea

Celebrate World Standards Day with us Discover how digital health immunization standards make cities smarter Join us on October 12th for a special one-hour live webcast celebrating World Standards Day. Hear experts discuss how standards support the provincial immunization system that will enable individuals, health care providers, and public health professionals to have secure, real-time access to the same information – and how this makes cities smarter. eHealth Ontario’s Peter Bascom and Sue Schneider will be joined by Karen Hay (Digital Health Solutions & Innovation Branch, Ministry of Health & Long-Term Care), and Katherine Atkinson (Research and Business Development, The Ottawa Hospital mHealth Research Team). Highlights include: • Ontario’s Digital Health Immunization Repository and the interoperable provincial immunization ecosystem and roadmap; • The proposed integration of the Canadian Vaccine Catalogue with the Digital Health Immunization Repository: Includes information about the standards and implications for EMRs and other clinical systems; and • CANImmunize and other applications available for Ontario consumers to manage their immunization records, including information about work in progress. ... Continuing education credits for participating health informatics and health information management professionals are available from Certified Professionals in Healthcare Information and Management Systems - Canada (CPHIMS-CA) by COACH (Canada’s Health Informatics Association) and from the Canadian Health Information Management Association (CHIMA). October 14th, 2017 is World Standards Day, celebrating the efforts of the organizations that develop voluntary standards. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO), along with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), hosts this day in almost 200 member countries around the world.
