  • Data Residency
    Data Residency Claude Baudoin, Chair, OMG Data Residency Working Group Recorded: Oct 17 2018 33 mins
    Data Residency consists of issues and approaches related to the location of data and metadata, and how to minimize the risk of adverse consequences due to the many laws and regulations that constrain where various types of information (financial, private, sovereign, etc.) can be stored. The OMG Data Residency Working Group published two important discussion papers in 2017: a study of Data Residency Challenges and Opportunities for Standardization, and a Data Residency Maturity Model. OMG's intent is to develop standards to describe laws and regulations on one hand, and the sensitive nature of a dataset on the other hand, allowing tools to expose the issues on might face when moving that data from one location to another. Recorded September 27 in Ottawa, Canada.

This session will describe the essential steps we must take to realize an optimal future healthcare system.
  • Field Guide to Shareable Clinical Pathways Using BPMN, CMMN & DMN in Healthcare
    Field Guide to Shareable Clinical Pathways Using BPMN, CMMN & DMN in Healthcare Larry Johnson, VP OMG, Robert Lario, OMG Healthcare DTF, Denis Gagné, OMG Model Interchange SIG Recorded: May 23 2018 59 mins
    Clinical practice guidelines are systematically developed statements based upon prevailing evidence to assist health practitioner’s in their decisioning making concerning the appropriate care to be provided for a specific clinical circumstance. A guideline is meant to offer concise instructions on how to provide healthcare services. The most important benefits of clinical practice guidelines are their potential to improve both the quality care and patient outcomes, and reduce costs. However, these guidelines are developped and communicated in prose, which often lacks the required specificity to clearly and unambiguously convey the clinical knowledge. These ambiguities can lead to the misapplication of intended therapy, causing at best a reduction in the quality of care and reduce costs, at worst causing harm.

    This presentation will demonstrate the use of three OMG standards, Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN), Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN) & Decision Model and Notation (DMN) to represent clinical guidelines. These methods in tandem provide a means to clearly and unambiguously describe and convey the clinical knowledge. The models can be reviewed, tested and computational verified. Further, since there are clear computation semantics for the standards, the models developed based upon these standards are potentially executable. This promotes the rapid dissemination and uptake of the guidelines in a clinical setting.

    The speakers will provide a brief overview of the three methods, supporting HL7 standards and supporting technologies necessary to make the guideline actionable in a clinical setting. A simple clinical model based upon the standards will be reviewed and finally shown executing. The presentation will show the potential of using these methods to model clinical knowledge and their potential of being directly executable.
  • Where’s My Data? Managing the Data Residency Challenge
    Where’s My Data? Managing the Data Residency Challenge Claude Baudoin, owner, cébé IT & Knowledge Management and Geoff Rayner, CEO, Data Advantage Group Recorded: Feb 27 2018 62 mins
    Introducing the OMG’s Data Residency Maturity Model

    With the rise of managed IT services and cloud computing, sensitive data is regularly moved across countries and jurisdictions, which can be in direct conflict with various international, national or local regulations dictating where certain types of data can be stored (e.g., the European Union’ General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR). Data residency is also a consideration of data owners responsible for protecting and securing data from unintended access.

    The Object Management Group® (OMG®), a technology standards consortium, launched a working group in 2015 to address the challenges of data residency and define a standards roadmap to help stakeholders manage the location of their data and metadata.

    Given the complexity of the issue, a stepwise improvement plan is necessary. This webinar will introduce a new Data Residency Maturity Model (DRMM) proposed in December 2017. Similar to the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) invented in 1990 at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), the DRMM contains five maturity levels aimed at helping an organization improve their practices and governance of data residency. The OMG seeks feedback on the DRMM and calls on all interested parties to contribute to this work.
  • Secure Network Communications (SNC) for Software Defined Radios (SDR)
    Secure Network Communications (SNC) for Software Defined Radios (SDR) Dr. Jeffrey Smith, Chief Systems Engineer, Multi-Agency Collaboration Environment (MACE), and Larry Johnson, OMG VP Recorded: Jan 30 2018 36 mins
    SDRs provide wireless communication components whose trans¬mit and receive characteristics are realized through specialized software running on programmable platforms. The benefit of allowing a single communications platform to be rapidly reconfigured for multiple, highly-diverse communication is to multiplex receive and transmission signals of different encodings on many frequencies (each combination is called a “waveform”). SDRs handle waveforms programmatically are used in fundamentally new ways for multiple domains (e.g. C4ISR, Internet of Things, Robotics, Space, etc.). Sup¬porting several waveforms inside the same device eases bug fixing, enables field re-configurability, allows mul¬tiple data transmission standards to be supported simultaneously, and helps improve the security and integrity of communications. Any communication task can be realized instanta¬neously by uploading/downloading appropriate software that defines the necessary waveforms allowing rapid reconfiguration and upgrades of Over-The-Air Reprogrammable deployed equipment and use of Smart Antennas.

    This webinar’s purpose is to provide background and solicit interest for a revised version of the OMG Software-Based Communications Domain Task Force (SBC/DTF), called the Secure Network Communications (SNC) for Software Defined Radios (SDR) Working Group (WG).
