Call to Action: Healthcare ID Assurance WG

This is a special message from the Kantara Initiative Healthcare Identity Assurance Work Group (HIAWG).

Please join the HIAWG to Kick of a Strategic Activity for Broad Industry Interoperability 

Date and Time: February 12th, 2015 10 PT / 13 ET / 19 CET
Teleconference Details: Join the on-line meeting 

To the Kantara Initiative Community and Beyond,

After our recent hiatus, we are reconvening the Kantara Initiative Healthcare Identity Assurance Work Group (HIAWG).

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 will serve as a kick off session where we will plot out our goals and course of action to satisfy this request. We will send out an agenda ahead of time.

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.

Best Regards,

Pete Palmer
Chair of the HIAWG
