Extensions to be Applied

  • SecurityEvent.Event: Add location attribute

Example Scenarios

Scenarios are based on trusted record entry management by EHR, PHR and other systems. Scenarios describe EHR record entry lifespan, in one chain (of trust), from point of record entry origination to point of record entry destruction/deletion, in another chain (of trust), from point of record entry origination to each ultimate point of record access/view. Scenarios describe lifecycle events occurring during record entry lifespan, such as amendment, attestation, exchange, access/use.

Scope of coverage

The scope of the RecordLifecycleEvent Profile is trusted Record Entry management by EHR, PHR and other systems. Scope includes Record Entry lifespan, from point of origination to each ultimate point of record entry access/use, to the final point of record entry destruction/deletion. Scope includes lifecycle events occurring at various point in the Record Entry lifespan. Scope is based on ISO 10781, EHR System Functional Model Release 2, and ISO 21089, Trusted End-to-End Information Flows.
