Joint Inter-Ministerial Policy Dialogue on eHealth Standardization and Second WHO Forum on eHealth Standardization and Interoperability (2014)

On 10 and 11 February WHO hosted the Joint Inter-Ministerial Policy Dialogue on eHealth Standardization and Second WHO Forum on eHealth Standardization and Interoperability at WHO headquarters in Geneva. Participants of the Forum included representatives from WHO Member States, health data standards development organizations (SDOs), academic and research institutions, implementing partners, the donor community, and subject matter experts concerned with development, adoption and implementation of health data standards at national and sub-national level.

In line with the recommendations of the First Forum on eHealth Standardization and Interoperability held in December 2012 and the recent Resolution WHA66.24, the objectives of the Second Forum were to facilitate a dialogue on the need for policy and governance mechanisms for adoption of health data standards in countries and to draft a policy and governance framework for full adoption of standards at national and sub-national levels.
