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 to support and enable all aspects of the health system.

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, identifiers) (including new work in Genomics)
  • Requirements (medications, EHR’s, use case, security, blockchain)
  • Semantic content representation (specifications, terminology resources, models, structure, competencies and content, big data, workforce)
  • Health data, software and systems safety and privacy (management of risk)
  • Pharmaceutical products information system safety, efficiency and interoperability (medicinal management concepts and definitions, medicinal product identification, implementation guides)
  • 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 published in early 2018, 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
