Seeking Technical Standards Community Participants

Register your interest

Te Whatu Ora January 2024

This message is to seek expressions of interest to participate in a technical standards community Te Whatu Ora Data and Digital is looking to establish within the health sector. The community would provide feedback on API technical standards drafted by Te Whatu Ora before they are baselined and published via HISO.  

Feedback from the sector is very important when standards are developed, to ensure the standard is fit for purpose and easy to understand. Technology advocates come from various backgrounds, have diverse experiences, and offer broad perspectives. By listening and being open to different opinions and viewpoints, we can foster a rich and inclusive community that thrives through shared knowledge and collaboration.  

 We are in the final stages to release the following standards for review: 

  • API Design and Development Standard 
  • API Security Standard 

 Further work is taking place in the following areas:

  • API Publishing Standard 
  • FHIR Decision Matrix – when FHIR is to be used versus an alternative. 

Where a new standard is developed, or an existing standard updated, community members will be asked for input, following internal review. We’ve created a review forum to assess feedback provided and look to contact responders where further clarification on feedback is needed. Feedback on the standard will be online using GitHub. When we have completed the initial review and baselined the standard, the opportunity to provide feedback to a standard remains and amendments will be managed via change control.  

Following internal and external review of the standard – and any amendments being made – it will go to the HISO committee for endorsement and publication. 

People wanting to be part of the community can contact David Moon for more information about the process. [email protected]
