Limitations, Dependencies, and Preconditions for Consideration Applicable Value Set(s) and Starter Set(s)
  • The IHE IT Infrastructure Technical Framework Supplement, Healthcare Provider Directory (HPD), Trial Implementation was proposed, but not adopted for CEHRT 2015. The Health IT community has recognized the value of the underlying data elements and structure of that standard. However, this implementation specification has met with limited adoption due to several concerns. 
  • The reference to FHIR for this interoperability need is in relation to the transport services that are conformant to the “RESTful FHIR API”
  • The FHIR resources for this interoperability need might be limited to Service Provider Directory Resources within the Administration Module.
  • FHIR Resources are in various stages of maturity. Please refer to the FHIR website for updates on specific profiles and their progress. The FHIR Maturity Model and each of the levels is described on the HL7 wiki.
  • See IHE and FHIR projects in the Interoperability Proving Ground
  • Security Labeling – the health information is labeled with security metadata necessary for access control by the end user.

IHE profile in progress

Just an FYI that there is a IHE profile development process happening now for provider and facility directories via the "Mobile Care Services Discovery (mCSD)".  It will leverage FHIR STU3:
  https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/ititech/qPz-ok3AHuk
It is tracking the Argonaut work, as well as intended to include the functionality in the IHE CSD and HPD profiles. 

Volume 1 is being worked on/finalized now.

Thank you for this helpful…

Thank you for this helpful information. We'll continue to monitor progress on this work and assess it's readiness for inclusion into the table above as it reaches trial implementation status within IHE.
