Health and Technology Leaders Tackle Challenge of Managing Consumers' Identities in Web-Based Personal Health Tools
Date:1/24/2008

id Work Group member Donald Simborg, M.D., a leading voice in electronic health information standards. "We must study and better measure the reliability of various methods of consumer authentication. We strongly recommend more research in this area from both government and the private sector."

The group notes that even today's most commonly used method -- in-person identity proofing -- has not been subject to stringent reliability testing. The absence of sound testing data makes it difficult to evaluate the relative benefits or drawbacks of innovative approaches. The Work Group calls on the National Institute of Standards and Technology, in collaboration with other interested agencies, to study current identity-proofing practices to help set benchmarks.

The paper further emphasizes the need for ongoing monitoring to detect fraud and to strengthen trust across entities sharing data based on the consumer's authorization.
