Expectations for the pilot
Expectations for the Pilot

  • Tasked to identify and solve anticipated problems in data segmentation and/or privacy

  • Tasked to provide user stories that can be used in Agile development of a reference implementation that offers a solution to the problem

  • Expected to apply current HIT standards to solve anticipated issues in the reference implementation

  • Tasked to identify resulting issues that may be useful as an update to the DS4P Implementation Guide

  • Ultimate goal to demonstrate practical a reference implementation and identify any gaps in or extensions to HIT standards

Problem statement s
Problem Statement(s)

  • As the exchange of Personal Health Information (PHI) becomes more commonplace, how can healthcare consumers be confident that their medical information is being appropriately shared?

  • How can the benefits of the exchange of medical information on demand be realized if healthcare consumers decide not to “opt in?”

  • Considering the growth of medical identity theft, how can systems releasing PHI protect the physical and financial health of healthcare consumers?

Specific goals of the pilot
Specific Goals of the Pilot

  • 1.      Define the exchange of HL7 CDA-compliant PCD between a PCD repository and a provider evaluating that includes a report on the outcome of the request back to the healthcare consumer. 

  • 2.      Additional goal: use of identifiers that can uniquely identify the healthcare consumer and PCD repository used to report the outcome of the request back to the healthcare consumer by healthcare consumer’s provider and subsequent EHR custodians.

  • 3.      Stretch goal: use of the PCD repository as a proxy allowing direct authentication by the healthcare consumer to the provider, subsequently reducing correlation errors.

Available roles
Available Roles

  • Holder of PHI that is participating on the eHealth Exchange

    • Accepts eHealthExchange compliant request

    • Retrieves PCD and reports result of request

    • Synthetic Patent Data is Available

  • Requester of PHI that is participating on the eHealthExchange

    • Makes eHealth Exchange compliant request

  • Repository holding subject’s Patient Consent Directive (PCD)

    • Transmits PCD to trusted eHealth Exchange requesters

    • Accepts policy created by subject of shared PHI

    • Passes HL7-compliant PCD

    • Displays result of the request transmitted from holder of PHI

Available roles extended
Available Roles, Extended

  • Secondary requester of PHI that is participating on the eHealthExchange

    • Makes eHealth Exchange compliant request

Secondary goals of the pilot
Secondary Goals of the Pilot

  • Exchange and enforce privacy metadata to ensure proper policy-based disclosure and redisclosure of PHI

  • Accept and display reports from information owners on access control decisions for requests for the patient’s PHI

  • Create a token passing scheme that facilitates secondary use reporting

  • Demonstrate dynamic reporting of access to a patient’s PHI and their ability to change their PCD using their PCD central repository

Relationship to ds4p ig
Relationship to DS4P IG

  • Parts of the IG this pilot will exercise.


  • For example:

    • How long will this take?

    • What level of commitment is expected?

Plan of action
Plan of Action

  • Upon agreement of the participants the POA is

    • Identify the elements available from previous DS4P pilots

    • Scope level of effort, decide on extended scenario

    • Review standards available for returning information on requests

    • Determine gaps or extensions required in standards

    • Create XDS.b repository holding PCD

    • Stand up information holders and requestors

    • Identify remaining pieces

    • Document and update IG with results of our experience


  • General Timeline, conditioned on agreement of stakeholders

Additional success criteria
Additional Success Criteria

  • Exchange and enforcement of privacy metadata (e.g. refrain, POU, sensitivity, confidentiality)

  • Exchange of PCD location and credential metadata

  • Exchange of access reporting information to patient

  • Exchange and enforcement of updated PCD
