IHE ITI Planning Committee - Announces 8 candidate proposals moved forward

There are a few proposals interesting to Healthcare Security/Privacy, although they all will need to answer the security/privacy risk assessment. I will be driving an update to the XUA profile to add common attributes about the user context that would be used to support Access Control decision making. This supplement will utilize the OASIS XSPA work, HITSP TP30/TP20/C19, and the IHE Access Control white paper. There is strong pledges of support from the international members, so I expect this to be a global effort.

The IT Infrastructure Planning Committee is pleased to announced the final slate of Profile and White Paper proposals that will advance to review by the Technical Committee.  Eight proposals were selected and ranked in order of Planning Committee criteria (market support, relevance, etc.), and documented on the spreadsheet found at this link.  Thanks to all proposal authors for their excellent preparatory work, and congratulations to those proposers/editors that have proposals going to the next stage.

Next steps are:

  • Detailed proposals are required to be submitted by COB November 2nd, 2009.  The detailed proposal template can be found here.  Authors should send their detailed proposals to ITI Technical Committee Co-Chairs Karen Witting (witting@us.ibm.com) and Rob Horn (robert.horn@agfa.com), with copies to Celina (croth@himss.org) and Lisa (lspelling@himss.org).
  • The ITI Technical Committee will meet face-to-face in Oak Brook IL on November 10-11, 2009, in order to evaluate the proposals and formulate a recommendation.
  • The ITI Planning and Technical Committees will meet jointly on a tcon in December (date tba) to finalize the slate of work items for the 2009-2010 planning cycle.

Thanks also to our host in Paris (Manuel Metz), and to all who participated in leading us to our selected proposals.

Cheers,
