NHIN 104 - The Trust Fabric of the NHIN: Making Exchange a Good Choice
May 24, 2010, 1:00 pm ET
COURSE DESCRIPTION: Students will learn about: (1) the national-level model trust framework that has been developed to help enable the safe and secure exchange of electronic health information over the Internet; and (2) how the NHIN Exchange has established trust among its participants.
The NHIN Workgroup of the HIT Policy Committee has recommended that it is the role of the government to "establish and maintain a framework of trust, including ensuring adequate privacy and security protections to enable health information exchange." The Workgroup has found that there is a need for the adoption of an overarching trust framework at the national level that includes these essential elements:
- Agreed Upon Business, Policy and Legal Requirements/Expectations
- Transparent Oversight
- Accountability and Enforcement
- Identity and Authentication
- Identification of Minimum Technical Requirements
The Data Use and Reciprocal Support Agreement (DURSA) and the NHIN Coordinating Committee Operating Policies & Procedures are examples that will be discussed of how the NHIN Exchange meets these trust requirements.
COURSE OBJECTIVES: By participating in this NHIN University class, participants will become familiar with: key components of trust and why they are important, how the NHIN Exchange trust fabric maps to the key trust components, and efforts to harmonize the NHIN Exchange trust components with the rest of the NHIN ecosystem, such as state-level HIEs and the NHIN Direct project.

NHIN 105 - The Future Landscape: Understanding the Value Proposition of Today as Context for Tomorrow
June 28, 2010, 3:00 - 4:30 pm ET
COURSE DESCRIPTION: As healthcare entities across the country consider their options for meeting the exchange-related criteria of Meaningful Use, NHIN 105 will offer up examples of the diverse value propositions that current participants of the NHIN Exchange garner from their involvement in the program today and discuss how federal agencies see participation in the NHIN Exchange as a critical element of their long term health information exchange strategies.
COURSE OBJECTIVES: By participating in this NHIN University class, students will: understand multiple perspectives on the value of participation in the NHIN Exchange, learn how participation in the NHIN Exchange is an integral part of the long-term health information exchange plans of multiple federal agencies, and begin to consider how these value propositions may be relevant to their own short- and long-term exchange needs.
