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.

Activity

The ISO community will be hosting a Webinar on "Digital Health Software Safety Adoption - New Standards Coming our Way" - September 27th 12:00-1:00pm ET. Canada has been an early leader in the area of software safety, an increasing concern in major countries around the world with the growing role of digital health in all care delivery and with the reliance of clinicians on digital health solutions for decision support and treatment. More is now understood about both the breadth of risks of health software and the depth of actions health informatics professionals need to take. Actions including mitigating threats from inadequate software design, system failures, data quality and workflow issues, poor integration, maintenance and implementation practices and from a major emerging concern -cybersecurity. For more details and to add the meeting to your calendar, please see our .... Cheers, Sari B)
Join the webinar to learn how you can benefit and contribute in these intiatives. Presenters: Elizabeth Keller (host); Neil Gardner & Grant Gillis – Members of Canada's ISO TC215 Delegation Description: Canada has been an early leader in the area of software safety, an increasing concern in major countries around the world with the growing role of digital health in all care delivery and with the reliance of clinicians on digital health solutions for decision support and treatment. More is now understood about both the breadth of risks of health software and the depth of actions health informatics professionals need to take. Actions including mitigating threats from inadequate software design, system failures, data quality and workflow issues, poor integration, maintenance and implementation practices and from a major emerging concern cybersecurity. The three presenters from our TC215 Canadian delegation will highlight current leading practices being adopted in managing digital heath safety in Canada and the work underway internationally through ISO TC215 to create a comprehensive set of standards that will underpin and extend Canada's health software safety leadership and our international collaborative efforts. Opportunities will also be outlined for participants to be engaged domestically in reviewing and contributing to new standards action over the upcoming 12-18 months. Please join us in learning about these important initiatives. Webinar Details: Audio: 1-866-626-0833 Conference Code: 9683129580# Join meeting Add to Calendar

Collaborate on topics with ISO/TC215, the ISO Technical Committee (TC) on Health Informatics.
The Standards Council of Canada (SCC) is seeking feedback from relevant stakeholders on the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) new work item proposal for the development of new standards on Ageing Societies. All responses submitted to SCC will serve to generate a Canadian position on the proposal. This proposed new TC would develop standardization in the field of ageing societies. The program of work will promote lifelong support and quality of life in ageing populations, enable people to remain independent throughout their life with a sense of value and contribution to their communities and take a holistic approach in addressing services and products that will help manage the advancement of ageing societies. It will take note of where innovation and technology require standards to support this demographic The first item in the proposed work program (by BSI) would be a common set of agreed upon terminologies for standards developers that would result in an International Standard on Vocabulary. YOUR COMMENTS, VIEWS and indications of SUPPORT would be appreciated, particularly on the benefits and challenges of undertaking standardization in the field of aging societies. Please respond in this forum with your views. Related document links will be provided. ...
