Data Element

Information from the submission form

A record of the patient’s authorizations and directions regarding disclosure and use of the patient’s SDOH data.


Support Patient Consent data element

Civitas Networks for Health (formerly the Strategic Health Information Exchange Collaborative (SHIEC)) supports the above submission of a new data class for patient consent data from Mark Savage of the Gravity Project.  As patient consent is paramount, having this information can help different applications disseminate the data in accordance with an individual's preferences. In addition, DS4P requirements in the 2015 Edition could be leveraged and expanded. However, it will be important to prioritize a national definition of "patient consent" to move forward.
