Subject: Conversation on Cloud, Privacy, and Healthcare with OASIS and WEDI

OASIS and the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) are exploring the possibility of collaborating on standards and/or profiles related to the use of cloud technology and U.S. HIPAA/HITECH Privacy and Security requirements. (See details on WEDI below.)

As a first step, we'd like to
​set up an informal call open to anyone interested in the topic. The call would be an opportunity for:
  • WEDI to provide an overview of their white paper, "Using PHI & Cloud Computing: A Focus on the Intersection of Cloud Technology and Privacy/Security" (attached);
  • Representatives from relevant OASIS TCs to provide
    ​brief ​
    updates on their work in relation to the topic​;
  • WEDI and OASIS members to discuss possible areas of collaboration
    ​(if any) ​
    and next steps
​If you're interested in being part of this conversation, please let me know. We'd like to schedule the call for mid-Sept at a time convenient for as many people as possible.



​etails on WEDI:

Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) http://www.wedi.org/ advances the use of Health IT to improve healthcare information exchange in order to enhance the quality of care, improve efficiency and to reduce costs of the American healthcare system. Formed in 1991 by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), WEDI was named in the 1996 HIPAA legislation as an advisor to HHS and continues to fulfill that role today. Serving as a private and public industry solution to critical healthcare problems, WEDI is a coalition comprised of a cross-section of the healthcare industry: doctors, hospitals, health plans, laboratories, pharmacies, clearinghouses, dentists, vendors, government regulators and other industry stakeholders. WEDI has a Security & Privacy WG with Subgroups for Cloud Computing and Security & Privacy HIE.

Joint WEDI-OASIS members include Deloitte, HL7, HP, IBM, Oracle, PwC, Siemens, and TIBCO.
