Health information systems unite!
Standards enable the fluent but secure communication of health information for the benefit of patient care and public health. Health informatics related standardization organizations (SDOs) are shown in the image with black and artificial intelligence standardization organizations with red. They are often linked to each other with liaison agreements. In the European Union, the European Commission can issue standardization requests to European SDOs. National standardization bodies (NSBs) like SFS (Finland), SIS (Sweden), DIN (Germany) or BSI (Britain) can make new work item proposals (NWIPs) to official standardization organizations.
