Subject: Introduction and background material

In preparation for our meeting tomorrow I am resending a brief intro
about myself. Included below are links to a presentation that describes
recent work I have done on the subject of our panel.

I am Farrukh Najmi, an XML Standards Architect at Sun Microsystems. A
brief biography may be found here:


I work on ebXML Registry, which is a meta data and content management
standard. ebXML Standard,
which is now an ISO 15000 standard, is being used to enable reliable
information management and
communication in governments, health care and businesses. Having spent
several years in Health care
Informatics I believe that standards such as ebXML have the potential to
improve our ability to
prepare for and manage epidemics. At the last XML 2003 Conference I led
a demonstration:

Epidemic Management Using OASIS ebXML, UBL and XACML standards:

(OpenOffice Slides)
http://ebxmlrr.sourceforge.net/presentations/oasis-demo-xml2003.ppt (ppt

My organization does not directly deal with Epidemics but one issue I do
see from my vantage point is that recent advances in technology and standards 
are slow to be adopted on a large scale by health care
standards organization and institutions.

I would like to explore:

1. What can be done to accelerate the adoption of relevant technologies and 
standards to improve Epidemic Management.

2. How can we better manage Epidemics if technology enabled information
to be shared in a timely, secure and seamless manner across enterprise boundaries.
