Data Segmentation Use Case Ready for Review

This just crossed my desk. Please help review these use-cases. I think we need to constrain the scope, not because the scope isn't appropriate, but rather because it is only with a constrained scope that we will make the next step in progress. This is a multi-step journey, taking too big of a step will result in failure.

A little background, this is a USA effort driven by the government body HHS/ONC and others. The focus is to determine for these use-cases what is necessary and/or how to support. The use-cases are focused on the highly sensitive medical topics like HIV, Drug-Abuse, etc. Keeping them sequestered (segmented) when there is not authorization yet available when they are authorized is the scope. I have written about this more when the project was kicked off.
