Upcoming online Open Forum on ICT Standardization and eHealth

This Thursday I'll be participating on an open forum on Internation Communications Technology standardization as it relates to eHealth.  The forum is being put together by Talk Standards.  You can find the announcement for the forum here.

The forum will be trying to address these questions:
  • How can ICT standardization best contribute to the development of eHealth services and systems?
  • What important lessons can be drawn from experiences around the world, including Europe and the USA?
  • To what extent should governments intervene in the standardization process to reach eHealth objectives?
  • Is it feasible that ICT standards enable patient choice and mobility; also across international borders?
I'll be contributing some of my experiences on international standards efforts and government initiatives in the US.  I hope to see you there.
