Alvaro Mestre, MScA. – Regional Director, Architecture. Canada Health Infoway.

BACKGROUND

In 2015 Canada Health Infoway and Gartner conducted a study to identify current best and leading practices for planners and implementers of health information exchanges in the form of a white paper.

This white paper describes those leading practices derived from interviews and materials provided by a number of organizations worldwide, as well as a number of related findings supported by published Gartner research and general secondary research related to health care and other industries. The leading practices provide valuable insights to health care stakeholders involved in the creation, operation or ongoing evolution of health information networks/exchanges in their own jurisdictions.

The study also resulted in a preliminary Capability Maturity Model discussion paper that health care policy makers, planners and information exchange operators can use to assess their current state capabilities, determine a desired future state, and develop concrete plans to achieve the future state. This initial model, while generally applicable, requires further review and conversation with health care policy makers, stakeholders and key influencers in Canada to achieve acceptance and initiate its wide application.

We invite community members to help us share and grow our collective knowledge on this important topic, to enhance current practices on key capabilities such as strategy, governance, clinical engagement, operations and benefits realization.

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)
