The Joint CWG is an public-private partnership working group with many Healthcare Associations representing industry (such as AEHIS, HIMSS, and others) and HHS agencies representing the government. Over 50 associations are members of this group. AEHIS has a leadership role in this Joint CWG and can extend many opportunities to get involved to our members. In 2018 the group will be focusing on tackling imperatives as a result of the Cybersecurity Task Force Report. As AEHIS continues to fortify its leadership role within HHS, we highly encourage members to participate in these initiatives, and look for your involvement.
Committee Chair: Erik Decker, University of Chicago Medicine
