Joint ITU-WHO Workshop on e-Health Standards and Interoperability

IMIA participated last week (April 26-27, 2012) in the Joint ITU-WHO Workshop on e-Health Standards and Interoperability held at ITU (International Telecommunication Union) Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. Documents from the workshop, including presentations, are publicly available on the event website.

The key workshop objective was to start a dialogue towards a comprehensive roadmap on global standards development, interoperability, and adoption for enabling the sustainable development of e health services. The resulting programs could leverage resources from regions, countries, industry, and research institutions, and provide a solid platform for harnessing future innovations within specific national e-health roadmaps.

The background paper: ITU TechWatch Report “E-health Standards and Interoperability“, by Laura DeNardis, American University in Washington, DC, USA, will be of particular interest.

Reports and other outputs from the meeting will be produced.
