Why e-Health Standards mostly don’t work
- OMG, HSSP and hopes for better e-Health standardisation
- e-Health standards Crisis
- Part I – on needs; the basic problem: ‘developing standards’ instead of sourcing them from industry; why ‘choosing standards’ creates hell for vendors and users alike, and may cost millions more than developing something that actually works; why ideas from open source are relevant.
- Part II – a survey of standards orgs and bad standards; useful ideas from IHE, IHTSDO, HITSP and openEHR
- Part IIa – what we can learn from OMG
- Part 3 – some ideas for solving the disaster.

- Just the facts Jack – what is a DCM anyway?
