California’s HIE Strategy

Leverage existing infrastructure where viable, extend scope and scale where applicable

Take advantage and use networks that are working today; build bridges to connect them where they don’t exist

Support regions, eligible hospitals & providers where no infrastructure exists

Allow networks to connect with each other: “network of networks”

Require use of open standards, using secure Internet protocols for routing

overview of planned services
Overview of Planned Services

The Core HIE Services are to enable parties to determine

authenticity of HIE transactions

where and how to direct HIE transactions intended for specific recipients via the internet

Technical and policy work remain to define policies and technical design

Functions not addressed in current architecture:

MPI (Master Patient Index)

RLS (Record Locator Service)

Patient Consent Registry

Why not?

Vexing technical, business, and privacy issues

Not needed for Stage 1 meaningful use functions

  • Don’t interfere with current exchanges.
  • Take advantage of emerging national technical and policy standards.
  • Encourage existing and enable new exchanges to support interoperability, while strengthening privacy and security.
  • Don’t let immediate work for 2011 inhibit more robust information exchange in 2013 and 2015.
  • Identify a trust fabric that spans spectrum of information exchange – for 2011, 2013, 2015 and beyond.
