The "Global mHealth Standardization Initiative (GMHSI)" is utilizing an open source, publically accessible multilingual multilateral open content directory serving as a consensus driven user platform to converge & regionally categorize global open standards for mHealth technologies.

The GMHSI mHealth open standards development process combines hierarchical common logic ontology engineering computational modeling of collected intelligence with collaborative transparent consensus-based assessment and due process to evaluate, establish, approve, and maintain mHealth open standards development. This initiative requires active participation & cooperative information sharing between multisectoral public / private industry, academia, multilateral regulatory agencies responsible for establishing and enforcing regulatory compliance over medical device development, consumer protection of protected health information legislation, and laws, and standards organizations responsible for developing technical specification interoperability standards between multiple data architectures and standards to support wireless exchanges of health records.

The GMHSI was founded by the International mHealth Standards Consortium, a [[non-profit organization]] located in the United States near Washington, DC.

Project Information[edit]

The Global mHealth Standardization Initiative is a global collaborative consensus driven process of Global mHealth open standards development. The Global mHealth Standardization Initiative Portal serves as the project's open access collaborative workspace for GMHSI's virtual community, multilateral multiagency standards & requirements submission hub, and computational modeling results publication repository which is continuously updated & maintained to identify, measure and publish current interagency duplication of efforts or gaps requiring new legislation, regulations, and standards,. Importantly, the portal serves as the platform for transparent non discriminatory interagency collaboration in the examination, convergence, and harmonization of existing standards & open standards, best practices, and policies that reinforce each other, and can be aligned, expanded and further developed into sustainable scalable Global mHealth Open Standards.

Policies and Procedures[edit]

GMHSI Open Standards Development[edit]

  • due process is public, and all computational modeling results, reports & technical recommendations , are archived and referencable for decision making.
  • anybody can participate, industry, individual, public, government bodies, standards organizations, academia, on a global scale.
  • guaranteed impartiality, consensus,and fairness by the process and the neutral hosting by the IMHSC organization.
  • free access to the standard text, both during development and at final stage, translations, and clear rules for open source mHealth standards development.
  • ongoing process for testing, errata, revision, and permanent access.
  • open Standards fully support vendor neutrality.
  • open standards are free for all to implement, with no royalty or fee.
  • participating organizations must provide a path for low and zero-cost implementations.
  • implementations of open standards may be extended.
