Inventory of Health Care Information Standards. IEEE


The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Medical Data Interchange (MEDIX) does not currently have an active group addressing security and confidentiality issues. This, according to Bob Kennelly of MEDIX, is due to the focused domain of IEEE/MEDIX that is essentially the sub-nets between bedside monitoring devices and monitors in intensive care, operating room, and inpatient settings. IEEE/MEDIX is interested in participating in cooperative efforts in the development of secure messaging standards.
