Security Label Confidentiality Tag
A Confidentiality tag is the 1..1 component of a Security Label that conforms to the HL7 Healthcare Privacy and Security Classification System (HCS), Release 1 (HCS) syntax to represent the level of protection prescribed by a policy governing the information to which a label is assigned.
The HL7 Healthcare Privacy and Security Classification System (HCS), Release 1 (HCS) can be found at: http://www.hl7.org/implement/standards/product_brief.cfm?product_id=345

HL7 recommends creating a value set of Confidentiality codes specific to priority US policies as discussed in the HL7 Cross-Paradigm US Regulatory Security Labeling Implementation Guide, which is under development and can be found at: https://build.fhir.org/ig/HL7/us-security-label-regs/branches/master/index.html
