The Kantara Healthcare Identity Assurance WG (HIAWG) exists to be the primary source of Healthcare Industry expert input into the Kantara IAF; to promote the use of Trust Frameworks in the Healthcare Industry for meeting the Trusted Identity interoperability requirements of the industry; and, to foster collaboration with regional, national and international Healthcare IT organizations.
We have received a request from the Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) to deliver guidance from healthcare industry stakeholders as to the role that Trust Frameworks can play to ensure universal identity interoperability within healthcare, and between healthcare and other sectors.
Our February 12th meeting served as a kick off session to plot out our goals and course of action to satisfy this request.
Our goal is to provide industry expert recommendations for broad interoperability and adoption of identity services in healthcare. Specifically, we’ll capture clear areas of alignment for interoperability and cross recognition, while identifying areas where unique attention is needed.
The discussion will be deeply strategic, with the ability to impact your organizational position in the healthcare identity services landscape. We recommend that your organization make every effort to join us for this kick-off. We look forward to having your participation. Please share this call for action with any stakeholder that may benefit from this effort or be able to make substantive contributions.
