CSISAC to participate in OECD project on Privacy-protective Uses of Personal Health Data

June 10, 2015

The OECD has started a project to develop a Recommendation on Privacy-Protective Approaches for the Use of Health Data. This work will be pursued as a joint initiative of the Health Care Quality Indicator Group (HCQI), a subsidiary body of the OECD's Health Committee, and the Working Party on Security and Privacy in the Digital Economy (SPDE) under the umbrella of the Health Committee and the Committee on the Digital Economy and Policy (CDEP) respectively.

An Advisory Group has been constituted for this purpose. As a follow up of the previous work on the OECD Advisory Panel on Health Information Infrastructure, the OECD has invited CSISAC members Robert Gellman and Bruce Arnold, member as well of the CSISAC Steering Committee. In addition, the Steering Committee of CSISAC nominated Deborah Peel, Ross Anderson and Pam Dixon to participate in that working group.
