Healthcare OpenID

High assurance ID Token

  • Coordinate with HEART working group at OpenID Foundation, so we don’t compete.
  • Two focus activities/solutions
    • In particular look at the information that is created in a High Assurance ID Token that would address the needs of both the TEFCA requirement for high-assurance as well as the needs for self-sovereign identifiers.
    • In particular focus on how the patient can know that any given web site can be trusted with their protected health information (PHI). A good approach might be to enable the Entity Statement of the OpenID federation specification.
    • From the user perspective dynamic registration of HIPAA compliant web sites should not be allowed as a web site either has a current certificate or it does not,
    • Adopt a paradigm shift to documents that are problem oriented rather than solution oriented. For example the FAPI specifications of the OpenID foundation is oriented to solutions for financial payments from users.
    • Focus only on new specifications that feature the goals of the Cares Act, such as giving the Patient Choice in how their information is accessed,
  • Third task is more housekeeping
    • Bring up a GitHub repository and deprecate the bitbucket repository.
  • Proposes a liaison between the two committees.
    • Vote to allow Tom to serve as liaison to HEART. Unanimously passed.
    • Their next meeting is March 23. Jim will attend as well.
