IHE IT Infrastructure Technical Framework Supplements available for Public Comment

The Public Comment period is now open on the new set of supplements from IHE ITI. Please review and provide critical and constructive comments. The comments are due before June 24

The XUA profile has been updated with a few use-cases where we found mature standards and production interest in using these capabilities. There are a larger set of use-cases that we looked at satisfying, but found either no interest from production environments or not sufficiently mature standards. The hope is that over time there will be more demand for these use-cases and there will be more experimentation with the available standards. Once these use-cases mature we will address them. For those that are implementing these unaddressed use-cases now, please let us know. If we have sufficient evidence of a production need and mature standards then we can roll these use-cases into the post Public Comment phase.

The IHE IT Infrastructure (ITI) Technical Committee has published the following supplements to the ITI Technical Framework for Public Comment:
  • Cross-Enterprise User Assertion - Attribute Extension (XUA++)
  • Deferred Document and Dynamically Created Content (D3S)
  • Healthcare Provider Directory (HPD)
  • Query Enhancements to Sharing Value Sets
The documents are available for download at http://www.ihe.net/Technical_Framework/public_comment.cfm. Comments should be submitted by June 24 to the online forums at http://forums.rsna.org/forumdisplay.php?f=198.
