Liberty Alliance Goes Vertical in Healthcare IT

Share via Twitter Share via Facebook Share via Linkedin Share via Reddit

Interesting to see Liberty fillng out its vertical story, starting to nail federated identity as a critical network service, potentially enabling compliance and privacy when data is distributed across a national healthcare network.

I like the fact Liberty isnt responding to this RFI technically, but rather is focusing on patient data protection – for my money a more important issue than “frictionless” commerce or whatever other benefits are touted (although improved data quality is a life critical issue obviously). Patient privacy must be front and center in any major healthcare network- which is one reason the half-baked approach of the UK National Health Service is quite worrying.
