The Open Group Healthcare Forum

The forum has been working on a revised Charter, which will be available by the end of this month on the Plato site.  In addition to the work the forum has been conducting on mHealth (mobile health, remote health, tele health) and interoperability, we have added a new project.  We have been asked by the US Government’s Federal Health Architecture to evaluate their Federal Health Information Model (FHIM).  This will be a relative rapid but important project for the Forum! 

If you have questions, contact the Forum Director, Dr. Jason S. Lee, at

The Open Group
Security & Risk Forum

We are doing a collaborative survey that we’re doing with the Society of Information Risk Analysts (SIRA). The survey aims to determine the current state of risk management practices in enterprises. If you are involved with risk management, we’d appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey, which may be accessed here. If there are others in your organization who are involved in risk management, we’d greatly appreciate you forwarding this to them for completion. The output of this survey will be a whitepaper published jointly by The Open Group and SIRA that describes risk management practices in enterprise organizations.
For further information on either of these initiatives, please reach out to
