NHIN Connect Gateway available

The federal government has made available the open source universal on-ramp used by federal agencies to connect to the NHIN. This should help accelerate formation and use of NHIN. SV

The NHIN Gateway implements the core NHIN services enabling such functions as locating patients at other health organizations within the NHIN, requesting and receiving documents associated with the patient, and recording these transactions for subsequent auditing by patients and others. Other features include authenticating network participants, formulating and evaluating authorizations for the release of medical information, and honoring consumer preferences for sharing their information.
