Privacy & Security task force: The group discussed the work done before for HealthShare Montana, the Billings legal framework, the MyHealth legal framework, and other possibilities. They agreed at this phase to review the major decision points that would need to be resolved in order to establish a framework, and discussed how MyHealth has resolved these. Three phone sessions were used (following the kickoff) to review the components of the MyHealth framework and discuss implications in Montana. In the final meeting, the task force voted to send feedback to governance stating the following:
No issues appeared to be unresolvable and on the outset it appears MyHealth's model could work as a starting point for Montana, after organizations commit sufficiently to allocate time to understanding and adapting the framework to us. Note: Few representatives attended these meetings, and of those, few attended all meetings, and development of a framework will require consistent commitment from the privacy officers in more participating organizations.
