This page supports the eHealth Exchange’s Access Consent Policy (ACP) Testing Documentation. The eHealth Exchange was created with the mission and purpose to improve patient care, streamline disability benefit claims, and improve public health reporting through secure, trusted, and interoperability health information exchange. The eHealth Exchange has developed testing requirements and test methods to validate the Accent Consent Policy specification. The intention of this testing is to ensure sufficient rigor to provide a high level of assurance that a participant has implemented ACP correctly, and in addition to provide a library of artifacts to allow testing of other similar consent workflows, such as those based on XACML.

The Coordinating Committee is responsible for establishing and maintaining all documentation that is enforceable under the DURSA. As may become necessary for the proper functioning of the eHealth Exchange. Following the Coordinating Committee’s approval Participants are given given thirty (30) calendar days to review the approved document and register an objection. Such objection shall be submitted to the Coordinating Committee and contain a summary of the Participant’s reasons for the objection.

A pilot was facilitated under the direction of the CC, with three organizations, two releases of information (ROI) companies who manage medical records releases for their provider customers and an HIE vendor. All three pilot participants provide gateways that can be leveraged for the eHealth Exchange requirements.

The three pilot participants agreed to complete the existing eHealth Exchange Smoke Tests and Security Tests and then pilot the newly developed ACP-SSA set of test cases.

The Spec factory approved moving the ACP-SSA testing program documentation and testing tools from pilot to production. The P&T Task Group reviewed the documentation and had no additions / objections. These documents are currently available for public comment and can be found here.
