Digital Identity Federation in Health Care | The CARIN Alliance and Department of HHS Digital Identity Proof of Concept
Our challenges with patient matching are directly related to individuals not having a portable, digital identity credential they can use across multiple different data holders. Over the last year, the CARIN Alliance and FAST worked with HHS, CMS, ONC, and more than 25 private sector partners including health systems, payers, third-party applications, and trust framework organizations to test the largest and most comprehensive digital identity ecosystem open framework. We will be sharing a report that describes our lessons learned, best practices, and next steps for how we can have a fully interoperable, voluntary, federated digital identity ecosystem in health care as we move to a modern identity and access management ecosystem that supports OpenID Connect.
Come learn what the group tested and the consensus the group arrived at on topics such as: patient matching, digital identity and authentication, federation, trust, certification, policy conformance, and more. We will also discuss next steps and how you can get involved in future initiatives
