Health Information Management Working Group Kick-off Call

Cloud Security Alliance is launching a kick-off call for the Health Information Management Working Group on March 22nd, 12:00pm PST (GMT-7), open to all individuals interested in addressing security in health information. We want to generate discussion around our charter and other areas of focus needed in the industry. The working group is chartered to research the following areas:
* Represent health information service provider industry interests inside of Cloud Security Alliance and promote CSA research to the healthcare industry (vendors, providers, institutes, academia, etc…)
* Define industry best practices for service providers to the healthcare community, in coordination with the Health Information Privacy and Protection Act (HIPAA),
* Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) and certifications as Hi-Trust, etc.
* Perform industry-specific peer review of CSA Guidance V.3 as a member of the Editorial Working Group.
* Have a special permanent stakeholder’s role with the CSA Privacy Level Outline (PLO) Working Group
* Peer review CSA research findings and develop a Health Information Industry Roadmap for implementation of CSA Guidance, GRC Stack and other Research findings.
* Act as Cloud Security Alliance’s formal liaison group with Health Information Technology Standards Panel (HITSP) and other relevant SDOs (HITRUST? EU?)
* Actively collaborate with relevant healthcare and health information stakeholder communities (i.e. focus groups, associations, research institutes, forums, academia)
* Provide quarterly status updates on initiatives the support HIWG’s scope of work
* Review potential impacts on standards development and priorities for standards needed to promote and facilitate health information initiatives for cloud computing
