HHS Secretary Recognizes Products of HITSP Standards Work
Date:1/24/2008

akeholders exchanging the health care information specified in each Use Case.

The Secretary's acceptance in December 2006 launched a year-long period of review and testing by healthcare providers, public health agencies, government agencies, standards developing organizations, consumers and other stakeholders. His recognition signifies the end of the testing period and the beginning of when federal agencies administering or sponsoring federal health programs will begin implementation.

"Recognition of the HITSP Interoperability Specifications is an important milestone" added Halamka. "Between the federal implications and the certification efforts of CCHIT, stakeholders will be motivated to adopt a standard way of sharing data throughout the Nationwide Health Information Network, leading to better healthcare for us all."

During 2007, the HITSP continued its work by focusing on security and privacy constructs and a new set of Use Cases supplied by AHIC:

-- Security and Privacy constructs will help to keep patient health information secure in an electronic environment. The standards will also help to assure that this information will only be used by authorized personnel for official purposes, including electronic delivery of lab results to a clinician, medication workflow for providers and patients, quality, and consumer empowerment.

-- Emergency Responder-Electronic Health Record will track and provide on-site emergency care professionals, medical examiner/fatality managers, and public health practitioners with needed information regarding care, treatment, or investigation of emergency incident victims.

-- Consumer Access to Clinical Information will assist patients in making decisions regarding care and healthy lifestyles. Accessible information could include registration information, medication history, lab results, current and previous health conditions, allergies, summaries of healthcare encounters, and diagnoses.
