The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) was created by a White House initiative in 2011, and is being executed by NIST to make online transactions easier and more secure, via an Identity Ecosystem Steering Committee with stakeholders from public and private industry, and through 5 demonstration projects funded under its pilot grants program.
Matt Woodhill of Resilient Network Systems, and Brian Ahier of Gorge Health Connect, both long time CHC members, introduce these pilots and what the pilots will make possible in the near future. The webinar includes a discussion of pilots related to the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace, or NISTIC. Solving the challenges of identity and trust between the many actors in healthcare transactions is critically important to coordination of care and use of health IT for collaborative healthcare. Disparities between patient and provider identity attributes must be resolved between systems; privacy policies must be enforced; and many identities and policies are dependent upon the relationships between parties, which are traditionally hard for IT systems to represent.
Resilient Network Systems has created the Trust Network technology platform to facilitate transactions that involve sensitive information search and sharing among multiple organizations. It has been aligned to meet these challenges for health information exchange, and this alignment was recognized by the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), which recently awarded Resilient and an exceptional group of partners $2M for a 12 month program to pilot these innovations as part of the NSTIC Pilot Grant Program.
