2 What's NwHIN The nationwide health information network is a set of standards, services and policies that enable secure health information exchange over the internet.
3 Purpose To provide testing tools for NwHIN Specifications.
4 Specifications Authorization Framework Production Specification V1.0 – SAML, CERTS Messaging Platform Production Specification V2.0 – SAML Patient Discovery Production Specification V1.0 – IHE_XCPD Query for Documents Production Specification V2.0 – IHE_XCA Retrieve Documents Production Specification V2.0 – IHE_XCA
5 Tool Support for Specs Make NIST tools available for testing Started with the 3 distinct tools XD* tools Pix/Pdq tool CDA Validator
6 Support for Specs Our tools worked at document and message level Tooling failed because of soap header requirements Lack of SAML support. Validated messages from Log files
7 Initial Approach to Improving theTools Add SAML to the IHE Pix/Pdq and XD* tools Keep them as separate tools. Some Problems Difficulty with maintaining tools in two locations. Need to modify some of the tools for gateway testing.
8 NIST XD* Tools Strengths Query Support Retrieve Support HTTP, SOAP support Weakness Missing SAML NIST IHE Pix/Pdq Tool Weakness Missing SAML, Fragile Soap Handler Strengths XCPD MessageType Support PRPA_IN201305UV02 PRPA_IN201306UV02 Tool Review
9 Current Approach Combine what we have into one testbed. Expanding the XD* tooling framework into a NHIN tooling testbed. Use What We Have Using the message validator from IHE Pix/Pdq tool. Take advantage of the XD* infrastructure
