The adoption of health information technology (HIT) with the development of decentralized, interoperable health information networks, is widely regarded as critical to enhancing the performance of our health care systems locally and globally. Health information exchange involving disparate networks enabling access to personal and public health information regardless of source or format will require scalable, affordable authentication and authorization individuals accessing these systems. Federated identity management provides real world solutions for real world identity management problems. This discussion will explore and describe the technology needed and policy considerations through the lens of a Case Study (Catalonia ePrescribing project) that delivers best practices guidance.
