COCIR Commences a 2-Year Chairmanship of DITTA
COCIR, the European Coordination Committee of the Radiological, Electromedical and Healthcare IT Industry, has commenced the 2-year tenure of Chairmanship for 2019 and 2020.
I am very excited to continue on leadership efforts from Patrick Hope, MITA Executive Director, who chaired DITTA in 2017 and 2018. Patrick remains in the leadership as DITTA Vice Chair and also Kiyoshi Inaba, JIRA, Business Execution Director, remains DITTA Vice Chair.
I am deeply grateful to MITA for their 2-year Chairmanship and proud of DITTA great achievements during that time, as we continued to share our competencies on standardisation and cybersecurity and intensified our cooperation with WHO, the World Bank and IAEA.
We also continued to bring a global industry voice towards IMDRF; in 2018, we took part in the IMDRF meetings under the leadership of CFDA (China Food and Drug Administration) in Shanghai (March) and Beijing (September), and submitted an IMDRF Work Item on Cybersecurity wich was accepted and now co-led by USA and Canada.
