Definitions and Scope:
Trust Community: Trust Communities are formed by organizations electing to follow a common set of policies and processes related to health information exchange. Examples of these policies are identity proofing policies, certificate management policies, HIPAA compliance processes etc.
Trust Community Profile: A Trust Community can create multiple sets of policies and processes and enforce these sets of policies on selected organizations who want to conform. For e.g A Trust Community can create a set of policies and processes which organizations have to conform to for regular treatment related use cases, a different set of policies and processes that organizations have to conform to for Behavioral Health related use cases and so on. These sets of policies and processes are called as Trust Community Profiles. The word “Profile” indicates a set of policies and processes.
Trust Bundle: Trust Bundle is a collection of Direct Trust Anchors within a Trust Community that conform to a Trust Community Profile. Trust Anchor’s of member organizations who have elected to conform to a Trust Community Profile are included in the Trust Bundle for that particular Trust Community Profile.
