Privacy and Security Work Group
In the next few years, Illinois will be focused on creating a state-level HIE that will connect the Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN) with local/regional HIEs and health care providers.
“To participate in the NHIN, an organization will be required to use a shared architecture, adhere to adopted standards and provide certain core services. … An NHIN health information exchange (NHIE) will be one that that implements the NHIN architecture (services, standards and requirements), processes and procedures and participates in the NHIN Cooperative.”Adopting privacy and security policies that will satisfy national requirements and provide assurances to Illinois residents regarding the safety of their personal health information will be a major task during the development of the state-level HIE. In the spirit of the public-private partnership that came together during the work of the Electronic Health Records Taskforce, the purpose of the Privacy and Security Work Group is to help facilitate this task by developing draft privacy and security policies and recommendations for consideration by the state-level HIE governance structure.
