HIMSS and the GSA, developed a pilot project to demonstrate the adoption of the GSA's secure and interoperable technical architecture for sharing medical information across multiple healthcare providers. The pilot utilized the GSA's E-Authentication Service Component program to provide digital certificates, technical architecture development support, and certificate validation services.
Seven RHIOs/Health Information Exchanges initially volunteered to participate in the project. One participant the Nevada Single Portal Medical Record HIE had to withdraw from the project due to a lack of resources.
Central Ohio HIE - Initiated by eHealth Ohio, and in conjunction with the Ohio Supercomputer Center, this project has focused on evaluating the viability of using the proposed national level user authentication process as a means of authenticating individual researchers, system developers and system administrators who will be both utilizing, creating and maintaining future health care research systems. An emerging area of software development focus, this pilot will also identify key issues faced by resource constrained development efforts.
