HIPAAT is pleased to announce the successful integration of its consent management and centralized auditing tools with the Lockheed Martin HIE Health Data Sharing – an Independent Research and Development (IRAD) Health Exchange platform.
To fully realize the benefits of health IT, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), as part of the Standards and Interoperability (S&I) Framework, is developing Use Cases that define the interoperability requirements for high priority health care data exchange.1
The S&I Framework’s Data Segmentation for Privacy (DS4P) Initiative is coming to a close for consensus on its newly developed use cases. As a committed member of this workgroup, HIPAAT is pleased to see, from a health information exchange (HIO) perspective, the spirit of these use cases demonstrated by an industry leader such as Lockheed Martin.
The [DS4P] initiative addresses the data interchange and system functional requirements that will enable the enforcement of Federal, State, local, and organizational policies and patient Consent Directives regarding the sharing of protected health information.2
Lockheed Martin has integrated HIPAAT’s standards-based Privacy eSuite (consent engine) utilizing the Java Consent Validation Interface (JCVI). Privacy auditing is facilitated in the background by the Universal Audit Repository (UAR), which is compliant with the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE)’s Audit Trail and Node Authentication (ATNA) profile.
