Sharing Analytics: Developing A Standard To Employ High Impact Analytics Without Stressing Networks

Since the recent outbreak of COVID-19, clinical researchers, drug manufacturers, economists, social scientists, and other experts have sought access to data for analytics. Much of the data resides in disparate networks and within organizational boundaries. It takes considerable time and effort to obtain permission to acquire this data, to gain authorization from ethics committees or institutional review boards (IRBs) to use it, and to transfer it across overstressed networks. Most researchers would prefer to spend the precious time consumed by these rather tedious tasks on analysis. A more efficient approach would be to have a directory that says what data is where and what it contains, and then develop analytics to leverage the data in a way that preserves privacy and minimizes latency.

About the Standards Committee

The EMB Standards Committee (EMB-SC), also known as EMB/StdsCom, is a standing Committee within the EMB Society and recommends standards of engineering practices to be followed in the field of Engineering in Medicine and Biology by the electrical, electronic, and allied industries, and by health care providers. In relevant areas this Committee shall coordinate its activities with the IEEE Standards Board and other appropriate standards committees.

This Committee is responsible for the development and coordination of standards projects, including their maintenance after their approval as standards by the IEEE Standards Association Standards Board (IEEE-SASB) for which EMB-SC has been identified or assigned as either the sole technical sponsor or the primary sponsor to oversee its standards Working Groups. (An IEEE-SA Sponsor is not a financial sponsor.) The scope and activities of the Committee shall conform to the operations and principles of the IEEE, IEEE-SA, and IEEE EMBS.
