The Healthcare Informatics Standards Planning Panel (HISPP) is
|“||[a] body created by ANSI to coordinate standards development efforts among the various standards bodies in health care.||”|
The panel's membership, which includes representatives from the major standards development organizations, has formed working groups to address issues relating to three of the four standards categories.
HISPP's objectives are to coordinate the work of the standards development groups and provide a focal point for U.S. interaction with the European Committee for Standardization. The European Committee, which is funded by member European nations, has a technical committee for medical information technology that has had seven working groups involved in standards development activities since February 1991.
