HL7 Policy Advisory Committee: Security, Privacy, Trust, and Provenance Considerations
HL7 Policy Advisory Committee (PAC) Involvement
The Security WG regularly responds to international and US realm policy considerations related to Security, Privacy, Trust, and Provenance in collaboration with the CBCC WG. Security Cochair, Kathleen Connor is the liaison with the PAC. Below are some recent PAC activities under consideration to be briefed to the WGs for input. In the past, the WGs have regularly provided input on the ONC Interoperability Standards Advisory and ONC Interoperability Roadmap. That input is incorporated into HL7 Executive Board correspondence with ONC. In addition, the WGs have provided input into HL7 comments to other Federal agencies, NGOS, and international organizations. See the PAC wiki for documentation of these activities.
The 2017 ISA has been updated to include improvements made based on recommendations received from public comments and the Health IT Standards Committee. For historical background on the ISA please review prior ISA publications.
The most substantial changes between the 2016 and the 2017 ISA are largely related to the ISA’s organization, content and framing. This includes the following: Further transition of the ISA from a stand-alone document to a Web-based resource with greater interactive features, additional opportunities for engagement with stakeholders, and also providing enhanced transparency to the process of updating the ISA.
