esMD HarmonizationUse Case 1: Initial Technical Approach HPD Plus

Erik Pupo


Goals of approach

Goals of Approach

  • Support multiple transport protocols to meet esMD requirements, including existing protocols already supported in Meaningful Use

    • SOAP (Exchange)

    • SMTP and SMIME (Direct)

  • XD* used to provide data sharing metadata

  • HPD Plus used for registration request and response provider information

  • Use additional infrastructure profiles for asserting identity, auditing and digital signatures, if required

    • IHE XUA (potential use of SAML as additional mechanism for identity – along with X.509 certificates)

    • IHE DSG (to convey a signature)

    • IHE ATNA (for auditing)


Overview of approach

Overview of approach

  • Assume Internal Systems are capable of sending, receiving, and processing registration information aligned to HPD Plus, but not necessarily using an LDAP client or server

  • Wrap XD* metadata around a registration request or response document (transport-specific)

    • How does the data get there?

    • Use XD* to augment potential gaps in HPD Plus schema

  • Map data to HPD Plus for the registration request (content-agnostic)

    • What does the payer/payer contractor need to know to register a provider to receive eMDRs?

  • Map data to HPD Plus for the registration response (content-agnostic)

    • What does the provider need to know after attempting to register with a payer/payer contractor?


Use of xd for data sharing metadata

Use of XD* for data sharing metadata

  • XD* profiles and associated metadata serve as possible candidate for data sharing metadata

    • XD* Metadata with SOAP or SMTP (push request and response from internal systems as XML aligned to HPD Plus)

  • See Harmonization presentation from 6/27 for details about XD* metadata


Describing the request response message

Describing the Request/Response Message

Use XD* metadata for data elements that help define the message.

Additional metadata is supported or required by XD* profiles, such as Author and Intended Recipient. This may duplicate some information from payload.


Background on hpd plus

Background on HPD Plus

  • The HPD Schema extends LDAP organizationalUnit(OU) containers to organize information on Providers, including:

    • Healthcare Organization and Provider Identification, Demographics, Specializations, etc.

  • HPD Plus is an extension to HPD with additional entries to better support needs identified in the S&I Framework’s Provider Directory Initiative, including:

    • Electronic Service Information (ESI)

    • Provider Directory Information

    • Individual Provider and Organizational Provider relationships

  • A major difference between HPD Plus and LDAP is the requirement for a specific persistence mechanism.

    • LDAP requires an LDAP server for persistence.

    • HPD Plus decouples LDAP from a specific persistence mechanism. This allows, for example, an implementer to use a Relational Database model without an LDAP server.


Background on dsmlv2

Background on DSMLv2

  • Traditionally, LDAP was used in a client server environment

  • However, there is value in sharing directory information without an LDAP server.

    • DSMLv2 is a systematic translation of LDAP’s ASN.1 grammar into XML-Schema

    • Provides guidance on binding to SOAP or a simple data file

  • DSMLv2 represents the operations that an LDAP directory can perform and the results of such operations

    • DSMLv2 supports search, add, modify, delete, and extended request operations

    • esMD could use these operations to represent the Registration Request Type (new, update, terminate)

  • HPD/HPD Plus include guidance on using DSMLv2 and SOAP

    • The esMD registration request and response can use DSMLv2 to express an HPD Plus query or response as XML documents wrapped in XD* metadata.


Ldap terminology

LDAP Terminology

  • An LDAP directory tree consists of related Entries

    • Entries are composed of one or more Object Classes

      • An Object Class is a collection of attributes

        • Attributes store data and define data type.

        • Each attribute has a name and belongs to an Object Class.

      • Object Classes define:

        • Whether an attribute it is mandatory (MUST) or optional (MAY)

        • The hierarchy of object classes and thus inheritance


Request response provider information

Request/Response: Provider Information


Request response registration request information

Request/Response: Registration Request Information


Request response provider directory information

Request/Response Provider Directory Information


Response request status

Response: Request Status


Request response message signature approach 1

Request/Response: Message Signature Approach 1


Request response message signature approach 2

Request/Response: Message Signature Approach 2

Create an external object (which we would call a DSG document) that would

be used to capture a digital signature and x.509 certificate.


Summary of analysis

Summary of Analysis

  • HPD Plus, combined with XD* metadata and SOAP header, is capable of representing majority of the Use Case 1 data set requirements for the registration request

  • The addRequest, modifyRequest, modDNRequest, and delRequest result in an LDAPResult response which includes status codes for the request but no provider information

    • Possible to define extendedRequest specific to esMD needs

  • Need to clarify Signature Artifact requirements
