Provider Directories – A Strategic Priority

Why a strategic Priority


  • Covering 30M People
  • Network of Networks model
  • Disaster response is a driver due to coastal state
  • Privacy and Consent is an important issue
  • Leverage IHE and HL7 Standards including discovering electronic end points – Creating Single Virtual State Directory
  • Avoiding replication. instead point to where data is closest to the people in the directory.

Why a strategic priority for eHealth Exchange

  • Need automated discovery
  • Must support Federation
  • Computable consent works with Provider Directories
  • Current directories based on UDDI needs modernization to align with industry direction

Strategic for CareQuality

  • Members are in two-tier hierarchy
  • Trust agreement is coupled to directory
  • Automation is key
  • more levels anticipated in future
  • supporting multiple trust domains

Strategic for HIETexas

  • Directories must be interoperable across the state
  • Selected through transparent public process
  • Provider Directory was a top choice alongside Event Notifications – Part of Medicaid 90/10 match project

Provider Directory Use Cases

  • Identify human or organizational provider based on attributes – Based on relationships to an organization
  • Keeping Provider Lists current (Federation, Subscriptions, Data Exchange, real-time v batch, administration component) – Encapsulated or linked object retrieval eg. Certificate retrieval – Generic electronic services discover (IHE SOAP, FHIR, DIrect) – Target automated Patient Consent expression
  • New: Consumer Directory
