Purpose: To define how to mix and match NHIN Direct transactions and existing NHIN Limited Production Exchange (LPE) specifications and services (patient discovery and information access) capabilities at scale.

Our Goals: The goal of the Comprehensive HIE Interoperability Workgroup is to:
  • Define usage similarities and difference between direct and discovery/access capabilities
  • Propose implementation specification of the abstract model using IHE/NHIN transactions
  • Describe possible intersections between direct and discovery/access capabilities within an HIE and across HIEs
  • Answer the question: What is the best way forward to ensure the collaborative co-existence of the direct and discovery/access capabilities?
