What is the HSC?

The Health Standards Collaborative HSC (formally SCO) began to take shape in 2008. The establishment of the HSC enhanced collaboration among leadership of standards development organizations and related entities, with the end goal of supporting sustainable healthcare information technology (HIT) in the U.S.

The goals of the HSC are (1) to develop an executive forum and a process for senior leadership of the U.S. healthcare standards development community to have strategic and tactical dialogue, planning and collaboration across standards development organizations; and (2) to unify and harmonize healthcare industry standards to meet the interoperability and standards definition needs of all healthcare stakeholders.

The HSC is NOT a Standards Development Organization!
