IHE Document Digital Signature - Non-Repudiation

I presented the Document Digital Signature profile to the S&I Framework - esMD workgroup. This group is looking for ways  to have non-repudiation proof of authorship and are hell-bent on using digital signatures. I am not convinced that they yet have the compelling use-case to overcome the 'costs' that come along with Document Digital Signatures. These costs are money, but more so they are resources, changes to workflows, and a long-term commitment. It is  this long-term commitment that usually stops most projects short.

My presentation leveraged much of the things that I have blogged about.
