ISO/TS 21547:2010

Health informatics - Security requirements for archiving of electronic health records - Principles

The purpose of ISO/TS 21547:2010 is to define the basic principles needed to securely preserve health records in any format for the long term. It concentrates on previously documented healthcare specific archiving problems. It also gives a brief introduction to the general archiving principles. Unlike the traditional approach to standardization work, where the perspective is that of modelling, code sets and messages, this Technical Specification looks at archiving from the angle of document management and related privacy protection.

In ISO/TS 21547:2010 archiving is understood to be a wider process than just the permanent preservation of selected records.

ISO/TS 21547:2010 defines architecture and technology-independent security requirements for long-term preservation of EHRs having fixed content.

ISO/TS 21547:2010 and a complementary Technical Report, ISO 21548, concentrate on the security requirements (integrity, confidentiality, availability and accountability) necessary for ensuring adequate protection of health information in long-term digital preservation. This Technical Specification will also address privacy protection requirements for both the EHR and eArchiving systems used in the healthcare environment.

ISO/TS 21547:2010 defines functional security requirements for long term archiving of EHRs, but the practical archiving models and technology required are outside the concept of this Technical Specification.
