MethodologyReport Amit
  • HIMSS PR team:
    • Announcement within 2019 is unlikely. It should be bound to en event. Candidates: ONC Interoperability event (Jan 27-28), HIMSS US (Mar 9-13, 2020), IHE World Summit (Mar 23-27, 2020). Note: next GDHP meeting is Mar 16-18, 2020), announcment should be before that.
    • Announcement shall contain (approved) quotes from each of the organisations
    • Shall contain "what the consortium do"
  • Legal team found name candidate: "Global Consortium for eHealth Interoperability (GCeHI)"
    • Preferred domain suffix: ".org" (alternative ".net"?)
    • Domain proposed to register:
  • Commitment of governments: Commitment letter shall be developed to let ONC, Dutch, etc. sign for supporting this initiative


Governance should be ready before countries "join" the consortium, but a letter of commitment will be included in the announcement.

Targeted event: ONC meeting, repetition at HIMSS US meeting, IHE World Summit, etc.

MethodologySigned approvalExtend the one-pager with a "signature" section, which all three organisations sign would be helpful (also for internal marketing)Decision: This paper will be produced
