Profile balloting plans


Profile Details

It is defining an IG for an ecosystem that is following the IHE White Paper on “Document Sharing”, which is the abstract model for what XDS started but has gone well beyond XDS.

  • A document Sharing environment equally handles all kinds of documents, it is not constrained to CDA or FHIR documents.
  • This is a working ecosystem, including patient management, patient cross referencing, User management, access controls, audit controls, provenance requirements, and eventually consent.
  • This ecosystem will be constrained following the IHE profiles, but should be able to be standalone as well. That is that it is envisioned to be equally an API to an XDS ecosystem, or deployed as a standalone Document Sharing system purely FHIR based.
  • This IG will leverage existing IHE profile of the current profiles that use FHIR (MHD, PIXm, PDQm, ATNAm, and MHD-I), use of IUA, and likely future Consent profile.
