A multi-stakeholder initiative to launch a next-generation health interoperability platform has announced two founding members and achieved status as a not-for-profit corporation.

The Healthcare Services Platform Consortium has received commitment from Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Healthcare, and LSU Health Care Services Division, a Baton Rouge-based academic healthcare organization.

HSPC also appointed Stanley M. Huff, M.D., chief medical informatics officer at Intermountain Healthcare, as chairman of the board of directors, and Oscar Diaz, former vice president and general manager of Harris Healthcare Solutions, as CEO.

The Healthcare Services Platform Consortium, according to the announcement, is an effort to "focus application development on a new-generation platform through alignment of leading healthcare delivery organizations, vendors, system integrators and a venture-led investor group." Announcement
