The Applicability Statement for Secure Health Transport is intended to provide constrained conformance guidance on the interoperable use of a set of RFCs describing methods for achieving security, privacy, data integrity, authentication of sender and receiver, and confirmation of delivery consistent with the data transport needs for health information exchange.

This version updates the Applicability Statement v1.1 based on recommendations from the Implementation Geographies Workgroup in coordination with the Reference Implementation Workgroup. In addition to fixing minor errors and typos, the updates improve interoperability by clarifying certain requirements in the document and in its underlying standards.
