The OSEHRA Community Response on Cybersecurity for VistA is now available for review and comment.
The response addresses the four keys questions from VA:
- Does the open source community have a focus on cyber security?
- Are projects to enhance cybersecurity proposed to OSEHRA by the open source community? If so, have any been completed?
- Are there lessons learned from Red Hat/LINUX WRT cybersecurity that might be applicable to health IT?
- What is the relationship of OSEHRA certification to cybersecurity?
VA has directed that OSEHRA form a VistA Security Technical Working Group as part of our open source support contract. Details and charter are currently being defined. Community participation will be solicited. Further information on this and other aspects of the contract will be provided on our April Webinar call on Tuesday, April 19. Register now to attend.
I thank our community members who contributed to this important effort.
