Secure Messaging and Information Exchange for Health

HIC 2005 and HINZ 2005: Proceedings

Abstract: State Electronic Health Records trials and other health information sharing initiatives currently underway call for exchange of clinical and, potentially, business information relating to patients, customers and providers, between organisations involved in healthcare at the local, state and national levels. The requirement to exchange information between disparate organisations and across jurisdictions poses specific technical challenges in terms of security, interoperability and cost containment. It is proposed that a standards-compliant Secure Messaging and Information Transfer infrastructure, based on existing, readily available technologies, will provide Health with the secure information transfer facilities essential for the Electronic Health Records trials and future business-to-business initiatives. This paper discusses the key requirements and key components of a secure messaging infrastructure, proposes the secure messaging standard to be adopted for such an infrastructure and discusses how infrastructure components compliant with the standard would be deployed to different classes of participants.
