All together there are about 200 organizations that are members.  The initial meeting of the group was held in January of 2013.  You can view all the members here and there are quite a few universities on board as well as many oncology associations.   InterSystems appears to be one of the first “Health IT” companies to join. 

From the website (Current Working Groups)

“The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (Global Alliance) has formed four Working Groups to meet the challenge of creating a common framework of standards. These harmonized approaches will enable the responsible, voluntary, and secure sharing of genomic and clinical data.

Each Working Group is tasked with developing the key products in a specific issue area that are necessary to catalyze the sharing of genomic and clinical data in an effective, responsible, and interpretable manner. As such outputs are developed, they will be shared among Global Alliance partners for comment, refinement, and improvement.”

InterSystems, a global leader in software for connected care, has joined the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH), an alliance of 148 of the world's leading biomedicalimage research institutions, healthcare providers, information technology and life science companies, funders of research, and disease and patient advocacy organizations.

Meeting today at the Wellcome Trust in London for the first face-to-face GA4GH partner meeting, InterSystems joins 200 of the world's leading experts in healthcare, biomedical research, technology, ethics, and patient advocacy. The non-profit partnership brings organizations from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Americas.
